One significant birthday later and look what I got…

I can’t afford a Summicron-R 50mm lens just yet (min £300 I would say), so have an Adaptall2 SP 28-80mm (027A) for the time being. Give it a year or 2.

Two rolls of film already through it, though not yet developed (one XP2 the other HP5, so will have to process separately). Details to follow, so as yet I don’t know how well it works, if it leaks light, and all the other anxieties I have: if there’s anything not working right I don’t think I can afford to get it fixed. Owning a Leica is probably like owning a Ferrari – even once you own the car you have to be able prepared for the garage bills too.
