Comments about Leica Leica MP 0.72 Black Compact 35mm Rangefinder Camera Body with 0.72x Viewfinder Magnification - USA:

The big advantage of this camera is that it works without a battery, which is used for the meter only. It is also the most beautiful 35mm camera I have ever seen.

Comments about Leica Leica MP 0.72 Black Compact 35mm Rangefinder Camera Body with 0.72x Viewfinder Magnification - USA:

The camera is well built to serve "slow" photography.
One should take the time to visualize the final picture, to frame, to check and set the right parameters for exposure and for focus... and capture...
The controls are simple, easy and intuitive.
The built quality seems to be superb.

The real (vs. Marketing) sense of this camera is of a great and lasting tool and I hope it will last as my 60 years old fully functional Leica III.
It is only a tool.
If it inspires you? go ahead, that's a bonus.
But please remember, buy it as a great tool.
A camera cannot create an art nor capture the right picture, it leaves the creation work for us to do.
