    Hi,

    I use a Contax and a Mamiya 7ii and think they are really good, I did have to get use to the rangefinder system when I first started though!

    Thanks

    The idea was to have a safe closet
    where you could quietly write,
    " I really like using my Leica"
    without getting flamed.

    How about a "Semi First" Zone focus 645 folder?

    I'd be willing to bet that for most people, if they have an inclination to start a thread about something like a Mamiya 7, or Koni-Omega, they will think first about the Medium Format camera forum, rather than the Rangefinder forum.

    So it might be true that "Rangefinder" is effectively code for "35mm Rangefinder", but I don't think it was intended to be.

    Good morning, Galah;

    I don't think so. My rangefinders at this time consist of a Minolta Mi-Matic 9, a Yashica Lynx 1.4, and a Zorki 4K. But the Zorki will accept early Leitz LTM lenses. Is that why they let me participate in this forum also?

    There is a social forum under the "Groups" tab that is just for Leica. Is it possible that you might have wandered into their spaces?
    Enjoy;

    When they ask you; "How many Mega Pixels you got in your camera?"
    just tell them; "I use activated silver bromide crystals tor my image storage media."

    I really like using my Leica, as the guy above writes. But my favorite Leica might be my Zeiss Ikon. Shhh, don't tell anyone.

    Many of us own several different rangefinders but the Leica is the longest running. (and the one people most often strive to obtain). As a dealer explained to me: You don't begin with a Leica you hope someday to use one.

    I don't have a Leica. I have Canon and Mamiya RFs.

    I do admit, however, that when I talk rangefinders, I usually do so at That Other Place.
