    If we talk about original Leica to Russian Leica , Russian one makes a sharp gear noise like an Messerschmitt , I think with an Mercedes engine , Original Leica TM makes a smoother , more smooth bokeh sound like a Spitfire with an Rolls Royce engine.

    Nice analogy. When I press the shutter on my Leica II, which was made in 1932, it sounds like an insects whisper.

    I agree Cliveh , only the users know the value of Leica. But come , tell this to my plastic Leica Mini Zoom 35-70 Vario Elmar .
    It has an excellent lens but all other things are terrible. Camera is too thick , too heavy for a plastic camera and viewfinder with rounded corners and bad plastic is terrible. Camera makes too much noise , cant focus for street and always works with the slowest speed. Its my sixth Leica and what a horrible thing. Lens and flash is top world quality but on off the camera , off the flash buttons are terrible. It sucks the battery and finding the new one is head ache.
    I bought a new like FED 1G 1954 with an FED 50 mm and I will sell that Leica and buy an Summitar for 150 dollar from KEH and pain in the ass is over. Its a Leica II copy and I used 3 original Elmars and 2 Summitar , one coated and a Summicron and I found the class and bright sunlight pictures and bulb light pictures faraway more successful at SUM series , not Summilux. I saw hundred daylight Summilux pictures and No !

    I saw this and got a stupid grin on my face. I don't know what that says about me.
    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    Don't know about camera n cars, but I can tell you in my 60 years the things that gave me the most probelms either had tits or wheels.

    Perhaps the Konica AiBORG is a Trabant.

    Pintoids==Trabants, I think. They *will* in fact get you from point A to point B, but they do it in a rather eccentric clunky way requiring a lot of user intervention, often accompanied by strange smells and unpredictable performance, and they're made of recycled consumer products.

    The AiBORG looks kind of like a 2CV to me.

    My Bergheil is a prewar Mercedes.

    The lady of the house has to be a pretty swell sort of person to put up with the annoyance of a photographer.

    My old Koni-Omega was like a Nissan Armada, but only because of what the name of that 3 ton automobile evokes.
