    Find a marked down used one and show her how much money you'll save buying it "on sale".

    Perhaps remodeling the kitchen/living room or some such diversion is in order.

    I started with a IIIa, found a very nice IIIf, then found a very clean user M2. I'm using a C_V 35mm Nokton most of the time with the M2, I use all three cameras. If my wife were still alive to witness all this, she would have a fit.

    Nobody needs a Leica. You want one. What's wrong with that?

    My significant other and I keep separate finances. Every month we both take a portion out of our pay checks that is 'me' money. Whatever we do with it, is insignificant to the other person. Sometimes I spend it on camera stuff. Other times I spend it on a nice dinner with her, or a weekend in the next town. She might go to the nail salon and have her nails done, buy some music or some books that she likes, or maybe treat me to dinner.

    In my old marriage we had joint finances, and that always got murky. After the divorce even there has been 'discussion' of what money went where. Very ugly. I wish we had done the 'me' money then too. It's a good method whether you pool all money into one bucket, or if you keep it separate.

    I really need a summitar , elmar or summicron because I used them and know what they can do. If you havent used owned a Leica , as tasting a 12 years old whiskey first time , you would need to know how was a good whiskey or good lens effect your photography

    Everybody needs a holiday in Fiji but only few lucky ones goes there , good news , for Leica it starts from 10 dolars at thrift stores to climb to 250 dollars for a 3c.

    I think using a canon or nokton lens is to change the head of a blonde woman with a black one.

    A good whisky has a negative effect on a good lens, and I speak from experience.

    I thought I wanted a Leica M, dreamed about it for years. Then, when about to retire I took a bunch of cameras, obtained over the last two decades, give or take, and sold them at a photo swap meet. That gave me the money to get a M4-2 (that looked nice but had been serviced by a tractor mechanic) and a couple of used CV lenses. The lenses are really very good, I never had the money to even consider Leitz lenses and I doubt these give up very much, if any, to Leica glass.

    Now the kicker. You may find, that after a time, the having is not as pleasureable as the wanting. It is not logical, but it is often true. (credit: Mr Spock)

    Oh, the M4-2 that looked so nice? It didn't work for long. Purchased from a privite party at the photo swap meet so no recourse. Had to spend another $200 to have Youxin Ye to put it right. A word to the wise. Purchase from a reliable vendor with a warranty.
