The End.

Every end is a beginning.

“I’m writing you, to catch you up on places I’ve been

And you held this letter
Probably got excited
But there’s nothing else inside it

Didn’t have a camera by my side this time
Hoping I would see the world through both my eyes
Maybe I will tell you all about it
When I’m in the mood to lose my way with words.”

—John Mayer, 3 x 5.

“Compliments” suggesting your photos are actually bad.

“Great colours.”

“Outstanding black and white tones!

“Thanks for sharing.”

“Nicely seen and rendered.”

Looking for a Konica Hexanon 60mm f/1.2?

konica-hexanon-60mm-f.2.

-

This lens is rarely offered for sale, as only 800 copies were ever made and current owners tend to hold on to them.

However, Bellamy of Japan Camera Hunter fame has one available in mint conditionBellamy has a great reputation for his service and he excels at finding hard-to-find gear, so if you’re interested do not hesitate to contact him.  However, I should warn you the price of this lens is… well….

My review of the Konica Hexanon 60/1.2, Special Edition was written three years ago, and I still have people writing and asking me why I sold it.  At the time I purchased it, I “over-payed” for it, then sold it for a loss, and now it’s worth 4 – 5 times that price!

Ironically, I believe my review helped drive up the cost of this lens, but now I can’t afford to get another one…

Anybody want to crowd-fund a purchase?

—Peter.

Leica M(240) Akademie Workshop In Toronto!

Leica M Akademie Toronto

-

Leica is coming to my town on July 19th (that’s less than 5 days away)!

From Leica‘s own promotional email:

“This full day, hands-on workshops are designed to help owners of the latest Leica M model get outstanding results from their game changing, digital rangefinder.”

(The grammatical error above is courtesy Leica.)

Unlike the Leica Akademie workshop of 2012, I won’t be the guest speaker, as I haven’t figured out how to “get outstanding results from their game changing, digital [M240] rangefinder”.

On a related note…

If you haven’t already done so, please consider signing my Open Letter to Leica.

(over 250 signatures so far… )
