Leica M Compendium: Handbook of the Leica M System by Jonathan Eastland
The Leica M system has been with us since 1954. It rapidly became, and has remained the favorite instrument of photographers, especially photojournalists, who, like Henri Cartier-Bresson, seek to ""catch life in the act"", to record ""the decisive moment"". In this Leica M Compendium Jonathan Eastland describes the whole Leica M system from his experience as a professional photographer. He explains how to use, enjoy and get the best out of the cameras and lenses, regardless of age. The latest lenses can be used on the earliest cameras, and vice-versa, and the Visoflex, although no longer made, is now much easier to use with the M6 and its TTL metering. Advice on planning and shooting a story with the Leica and extensive tables of technical data complete this ideal companion for the practical Leica M photographer, as well as for the Leica collector and enthusiast.
