Nikon F2 vs Leica M2
1

I am blessed to own both of these and what I find fascinating is the difference in philosophy when it comes to build quality.

The Nikon feels like a weapons-grade version of a regular camera. Kind of a bit like when you compare an industrial item compared to a consumer one. Absolute tank.

The Leica just feels exquisite. Materials seem more premium (e.g. the sprockets are metal vs plastic) and the whole thing has that je ne sais quoi about it.

Comparing the Nikon to the Leica is like comparing a military boot to a hand built dress shoe. I’m not sure which one I like better.
