Well, it all started when I bought my M6 about three years ago. At that time I was using different digital cameras, mirrorless, DSLR, etc… actually I was satisfied with them(since I did not know anything else) and I was getting more and more into photography, cameras, lenses and all this. However at a certain point I got interested in film cameras and especially Leicas since I loved the design and lots of people(I used to get into photography with) were talking about them. To be honest I had no Idea what was that made this cameras have such a special reputation. Anyway I just thought well, lets have a look at one of these since my local camera store (Digital Camera Graz) had a used M6 for sale. I entered the shop and was asking about the camera and what happened then when I first put my hands on it is just pure passion I think. Haha
I had the camera in my hands and it felt like something „real“, I can´t discripe it but I think everybody who was in the same situation knows what I mean. The insanely good built and the symplicity of this cameras is what excites every Leica freak that much I think.
Obviusly I bought the M6 with a 35mm Summarit lense and got it a try, without really having a clue of how to shoot with a camera like this.
Somehow after reading through pretty much everything the world wide web has on offer about these little metal light proof cases as well as digital Leica M Cameras and a few trips around the world I can just say, I love it.
It teached me a lot and through this big passion this camera and the philosophy behind it, I am now seeing the world differently and am proud to be cooperating with such a cool brand that has changed this much in my head in the previous years.
