Recently looks Leica logo is a “must” for every shop in Maliandao Photo Market.
Seems everyone is an official Leica reseller and no other brand catch the eyes of the customers, wow!!! New place for Leica addict!
A recent gift from a good Chinese friend (and photographer)
China trough the lens of John Thomson, a rare collection of wet plate photo during the last century, from all around China, the quality is amazing.
If someone have the chance to buy one I recommend it.
In Dazhalan street
When you have a chat in the bar with a dark room master you can find some corner with jewels.

Ehm, before all, this is not right stuff for purist so Leica fans should skip this post :)
I’m testing an adapter for use M42 lense in my M5 Leica body, why?
Because I’m not a 100% Leica guy
Because I need a wide lens and don’t want spend money for CV or some Elmarit.
Because every 28 or 24 mm can focus very easy thanks the great DOF.
Because if I buy a Skopar 25 anyway is focus scale without rangefinder coupled.
Because it is so sexy use a nikon or konica lens (have adapters too) in M body.
Because I have feeling with M body than a reflex and can bring with me the summicron without keep 2 bodys
Because film photo means also have fun.
Because I need it only for wide lenses not for 35 or 50 mm
The adapter allow infinity focus so let’s see the results.
Here 2 samples, with a huge Pentacon 29 and Takumar lenses.
