Going Wide With The M3

with 10 comments

I borrowed a 21mm lens from a friend and shot a few frames with it with the Leica M3 this past week. Focusing with the rangefinder and composing with the hot shoe mounted viewfinder turned out to be a very interesting shooting experience:

  8. I’m a M9P owner and very tempted to get a M3.
