N°295 : Leica M8 with Russian Industar-22

Leica M8 with Russian Industar-22

If you don't want to break your wallet empty with Leica lenses, a nice option is to buy a russian copy of early Leicas, like the Zorki or Fed. They cost on Evilbay around the 50 Euro, then a 50mm M39 - LTM adapter on the same site for 10 Euro. This one has the Industar-22, in fact a russian copy of the Elmar. The results are maybe not so perfect as the Elmar, but they are pretty acceptable. You got also this typical ancient feeling to shoot analog on digital.
At the end my M8 told me : "What have I done to deserve this".
