Leica cameras are some of the most sought-after cameras in the World, especially their 50s and 60s film cameras.

A few years ago I came across a very nice Soviet-made clone of a Leica that would even accept the original lenses. It's a shame I didn't get it but bought a Praktica MTL-5 instead that was a much better fit for me. The real shame is that the Praktica MTL-3 I got given now has a jammed shutter. The Pentax SF1 I bought for 25 is going strong at least!
