I’ve been shooting with a Ricoh GXR-M and Leica lens for almost a year. Prior to this I had heard of Leica but I did not know much more than that about their cameras. For the past year I’ve really enjoyed shooting with Leica glass and I’ve dreamed about owning a Leica M body. I didn’t think it was possible and the price tag is prohibitive to many. A few reasons that has drawn me to the Leica M is its know durability, full frame sensor and compact size.
This past Friday my wife picked me up at the airport upon my return from a week at work flying. Depending on what time I land at the Asheville Airport, we try to grab a bite to eat at one of our local restaurants in Brevard. This gives a chance to catch up before getting home.
Last Friday was a lot different than previous times as our conversation centered upon my photography and where I’d like to go with my hobby. This led our conversation to my desire to acquire a Leica M, specifically the Leica M-E. She agreed with my decision and today I received my first Leica camera, the Leica M-E and the video below is the “unboxing”!
