Special Leica Edition of Budget Gourmet (Part 1)
This article is part of a special edition of Budget Gourmet sponsored by KEH, the oldest and biggest buyer and seller of used camera gear. KEH offers a 180-day warranty, 21-day return policy, and free shipping on transactions over $49. As we explore the special Leica edition, we will be discussing various options to experience the Leica shooting experience on a budget.
What is the Leica M Shooting Experience?
The Leica M shooting experience means different things to different people. Some are drawn to the talismanic quality, history, and heritage of the most iconic camera brand. Others appreciate the image quality from small, jewel-like lenses, known as the Leica look. The shooting experience itself is often characterized by the simplicity and tactile sensation of using a purely mechanical camera. Some photographers love the petite and unobtrusive size of the Leica M. Others may enjoy shooting with actual film and going through the process of developing and printing in a darkroom. There are also options to explore older Leica rangefinders or the Leica R system. Each individual needs to determine what aspects of the Leica shooting experience resonate with them.
Why Choose the Leica M System?
The Leica M system is chosen for its ease of use, superior lens options, and pure Leica DNA. It is the longest-running camera series in Leica’s history, dating back to 1954. The M system is closely associated with Leica’s breakthrough in popularizing the 35mm film format. The ability to use the same lenses and experience the same manual of arms in both film and digital formats makes it a versatile choice. Additionally, the Leica M system is known for its compactness and lens size, making it a future-proof option.
Exploring the Leica M Shooting Experience on a Budget
There are several ways to experience the Leica M shooting experience while keeping costs down:
- Buy used original Leica M gear: This means purchasing genuine Leica M lenses, avoiding substitute lenses or third-party options. Look for lenses in mint condition to ensure quality and durability.
- Consider different brands: Explore the compatibility of Voigtlander Bessa and Zeiss Icon bodies with Leica M mount lenses. These brands offer alternatives to Leica gear at a lower cost.
- Think differently: Consider purchasing gear that provides the desired Leica experience, even if it’s not a Leica product. This could include rangefinder or non-rangefinder options, film or digital.
Buying Used Original Leica M Gear
If you decide to go with used original Leica M gear, such as classic Leica M lenses, there are several reasons to choose this path. Classic M lenses are relatively simple with few moving parts and no electronics, making them more robust compared to modern autofocus lenses. By opting for mint condition lenses, you can ensure optimal performance and longevity.
As we continue this series, we will explore each approach in more detail, looking at different brands and alternative options for experiencing the Leica shooting experience on a budget. Stay tuned for Part 2 of this special Leica edition of Budget Gourmet.
