"The LEICA M7 is easy to use and shoot. The M7 and its lenses are tiny, far smaller than SLR cameras and lenses.

This is where it excels. It does exactly what it needs to, without all the needless features of oriental cameras that get in the way. Its lenses are superior to Nikon's and Canon's.

The primitive center-weighted-only metering and exposure system is superb, but only if you know exactly what you are doing. If you know what you're doing, the LEICA M7's TTL meter allows far more consistent exposures over all conditions.

The top cover is CNC brass, finished in black chrome. The black finish is black chrome (metal), not paint. The strap lugs are solid stainless steel." read more here


The LEICA M7 is a manual-focus rangefinder, automatic electronic-shutter 35mm full-frame camera. It has both manual and aperture-preferred auto exposure modes and works with all LEICA M lenses and accessories made since 1954.

The M7 excels as a small, quiet, solid and lightweight camera for serious photography or for tripod work at night, with the ability to make automatic exposures as long as 38 seconds.
