The old Leica — the one that I started the love of Leica — is up on the auction block.

A handsome camera.

But since I have the M10, I’ve not taken her out to shoot in anger.

It’s something that’s holding a lot of cash up for the “what if” that something bad happens with my M10. In that case I could, after all, go back to shooting film until it gets repaired or replaced. Alternately, there’s nothing stopping me from getting another M240 or M9 or whatever to tide me over. Hell, I can just take out the Panasonic Lumix if I want to shoot something.

I never like to sell cameras and stuff like that. But in this case it’s a combination of both being expensive and not used that’s making me decide to part with it.

Check it out if you’re in the market!
