Apparently I’m a lousy photographer... crap artist... garbage writer... and am getting too old to ride fixie and love French women. But, I have 25 different Tumblr themes ranging from arts and cafés to Leicas and Volkswagens, and don’t flood those streams with endless rubbish but select quality images. So to see all of my shit follow updates at "Ed Buziak / Fotoformat" on Facebook.
Beauty becomes the beast!Leica M camera with 70-180mm Elmarit-R lens.
A Leica M (especially the venerable M3) is a thing of beauty… whereas this set-up has turned the latest rendering of that camera into a beast, judging by the look of it. No doubt it will satisfy some (a very few?) photographers’ needs to connect their R-type lenses to their M-type body. However, the two were never meant to be mixed and the attempt to do so must surely be a compromise.
