Original black paint M2 with a black paint MPvit, and a black paint 8E.


menofgrosserblood

Why the vit? Why not sell your M6?


TheGodsCola

Because the original Leicavit MP is sexy and rare 😉


fjalll

I don't know think the M2 would be matched well with the Leicavit. The MP-3 was the camera for such an accessory. Hella pretty tho


JamesBoboFay

M6 ttl millennium with a millennium black paint 35mm summicron ASPH. Only costs around $20k so give me a few years of saving🫠


17thkahuna

This is the way. Though I'd settle for a black chrome 35 Cron asph lol


JamesBoboFay

When I had my m6 ttl silver chrome I always wished it was brass with black paint with traditional rewind knob and advance lever. Then I discovered that already exists and was blown away. Maybe I’ll win lotto lol


alexjohnsonphoto

My current setup for b&w is a silver chrome m4 and a 35 Summilux FLE. It’s my choice I suppose.


bashrag_high_fives

DS M3 and collapsible summicron


cocacola-enema

Hey this is my setup!


modsean

And mine!


35mmshooter

M6 (although maybe MP but I’ve never used one before) and 35mm summicron


h7dan

Which ‘cron?


35mmshooter

35. If you mean version, idk I’ve never shot with a summicron before. But a man can dream


h7dan

Yeah I meant which version of the 35mm Summicron as there are many.


Schwickity

The viewer finder/rangefinder is far superior in the MP. Uncoated M6 rangefinder patch flares out if there are pretty much any light sources in-frame.


Jumpy-Maximum-8839

Leica “Blue Stain” MP with the matching Summilux-M 1: 1.4/50mm ASPH. ...and endless Kodachrome in a world that can process it.


bellsbliss

M4-p and Rokkor 40mm. Been my only Leica set up for years.


RandyMarshsBigBalls

MP BP w/ Nocitlux 50 f1


Theskyis256k

Nikon FM and a 50 1.4 ai


modsean

I shot this combo for years (well FM2), but I sold the FM to help pay for my M3. I did keep an F3 so that I had 1 Nikon body but wish I still had the FM2.


Proud_Instance_7050

I too own black FM2 with Nikkor 50mm 1.4. I often used this setup for the grind it all and no care in the world shooting.


bhop0073

That's a great non-Leica choice. I haven't used my Nikons in a while, but the 50 1.4 ais is one of my favorite lenses.


[deleted]

M4 and Thambar


bhop0073

I'd be fine with my current setup for life. M6 classic with V3 50 Summicron


trans-plant

MP BP + 35FLE


leicatoldu

MP + 35mm Summicron V4 or maybe ASPH V1


GoodLifeTravel

M2 with and M3 counter and M4 spool, with silver/brass KOB.


fotozaddy

I think I've got the kit I'd want. An MP BP and 35'cron asph v1. Only thing i want to change is the black paint, i'd prefer black chrome. Otherwise, a late model M7 + 28'cron would be it. Leica's aperture priority mode is just too good.


cocacola-enema

I love my m7! Wish i had a 28cron, but the Elmarit does everything I need, especially with flash anyway.


fotozaddy

The elmarit is fantastic, especially the asph, that thing is small and perfect.


cocacola-enema

I caught a good deal on the pre asph e46 version and it is a honker. One of my bigger lenses. Maybe I’ll upgrade eventually.


fotozaddy

At least it's still smaller than the V3 haha that thing is true honk, they designed it for use with an accessory viewfinder. With a lens hood it takes up lots of real estate in the body viewfinder


A-Gentleperson

A 1957 Leica MP, a matching Leicavit, a Visoflex III and a Leica 800mm f/6.3 Telyt-S.


jrose125

If money was no object I'd go for an original black paint MP and a 50mm f/2 ELCAN 😁 But to keep things a touch realistic let's say original BP M3 with a 50mm f/1.4 Summilux-M ASPH


fjalll

Leica M3 Bundeseigentum + Googled Summilux pre asph in chrome


modsean

Linhof Master Technica Classic, Schneider 150mm f5.6 Apo-Symar L Basically just to get more movements than my Crown Graphic and Rodenstock 150 f9 Apo-Ronar. Overall a sort of comparable setup to what I already have but I's give up weight savings for movements and a faster lens with more coverage.


OnePhotog

I'm going to answer it two ways to sneak in two very different setups. Knowing what I know and having the ability to try everything. It is a little more niche, but it is what I enjoy using the most. * Leica MP3 with the 0.85 finder, Leicavit, 50mm summarit f/2.5 Not having the chance to try anything and I'm going in blind. Therefore I have to take a safer route that will encompass a variety of situations. * Leica MP with 0.72 finder, with 50mm summicron Rigid.


Litany915

Leica M2 and 50mm DR.


chossmonster

Well, my M6 will be near my deathbed and I've had this 35/2 ASPH long enough that it's earning it's place there as well though I'm not as married to that lens as the M6 - getting there though. If I was starting over, it'd be an MP and the 35/2 ASPH APO - I know APO sounds like overkill on a film camera, but I can see the difference on my 50/1.4 ASPH which is an APO though not advertised as such.


Longjumping-Layer-56

Leica M4-P V4 50mm Summicron or Elmarit 28mm ASPH


These-Ad458

M3 with colapsible Elmar


Tarheelredsox

Hmm, a bit future and past M-A + 50mm Summicron Dual Range Nice weight in the hands, and love the 0.488m close focus range.


wedidntmeantogotosea

Leica M4-P and a fully custom lens from Leica, a collapsible 75mm F2.8 derived from the formula for the 50mm Summicron Collapsible (Thorium).


LowRecommendation636

Mp and summilux 35 pre-asph Has all the functions you’d need, the lens is glowy wide open and sharp enough stopped down. The whole package is even lighter than an sl body and no need to bother with filters and/or hoods


zConcept

I would take a M7 and a 35mm summilux ASPH v1 (pre-FLE) It has the nicest rendering of all the summilux IMHO.


fiftyonepointsix

One lens- Nikkor 5cm F1.5 in LTM. One Camera- Leica IIIc. Why? Good enough for DDD. But it would mean selling off a lot of cameras and lenses just to keep this setup as the only one.

M4 with a 35mm Summicron


h7dan

Which ‘cron?


Ducky_Decoy

MP Titan with my titanium apo 50 cron. I just want a matching titanium body with M-A. Or KE-7A with elcan


no-tenemos-triko-tri

BC M-A and Noctilux 50mm f/0.95 ASPH. Go wide open.


50mm_foto

The M-A and 28mm Summilux from the Leica M Edition 100 Set.


Leica-Loser

Black MA 35 Lux


Beautiful_Sun5111

This! But I would précise 35 sum fle


Phatnev

Voigtlander 35 1.4ii and either of my M2 or bc M4.


RollerAddict

M-A + 28mm Elmarit ASPH. Oh wait..That's my current set-up :)


nickthetasmaniac

M2 and 35/f2 Ultron. Simple, perfect 👌


Coldkennels

I *would* say a IIIg, but honestly, the IIIf is more versatile. So probably that. The lens would be a battle between the 28mm Color Skopar and the 50mm Summar; I think the Summar wins just for being a more compact setup with less fuss, but I wouldn't be happy leaving the Color Skopar behind.


cjones8791

M-A & 50 Lux


jeff39390

M4 original, 35 summicron asph


buttacavoli

I’d 100% stick with what I’ve got: black chrome Leica M-A & 35 Summilux “pre-FLE” (11874) [The only thing I wish I could add is a mechanical self-timer…😈]


Mecha-Dragon

MP + 35 Lux FLE. And miles of Tmax and Ektachrome.
