Goodbye Old Friend

Last week I said goodbye to my beloved Leica M7. A camera that has been with me for around 5 years, and during that time has produced some of my all time favorite images. I know most people dislike the M7. The general idea behind a Leica film camera with Aperture Priority seems foreign to them. It has electronics for Christ sake.
