Which came first, the Leica or the Egg?
I bought the Leica M2 from a Swedish photojournalist, who in his turn bought it new in the early 1960s. The camera is quite worn but the mechanics and the rangefinder works perfectly. I bought it as a manual backup to my battery thirsty digital cameras and I load it with a roll of Tri-X every now and then. In my opinion is the M2 the best Leica M ever made. If you can find a Leica M2 in working condition that has a calibrated rangefinder - buy it!
I believe that the Leica must have come before the egg because cameras can't lay eggs and I don't think that it's possible to fit a Leica in a Kinder egg!
