I love photography and in the links showing below you can look at my efforts. When I got started in early 1965, I used a Zeiss Ikon Contaflex Super B with all of the available Protessar lenses from that company until Zeiss gave up making those cameras. My "other camera" was a Leica M3 SS. In the 60's I switched to Nikon using the Nikon F3, FE and FA. I accumulated quite a few Nikkor lenses but put them in storage when photography essentially changed from film to digital. I also gave up any darkroom work because it became too cumbersome to get the paper and chemicals. At last Nikon came up with a camera that was affordable and able to take my old lenses. That was the D7000. Most of my lenses are manual lenses, without autofocus, etc. and many of the pictures on my webpages are taken with these older lenses. The latest addition to my cameras is the Nikon D800e, I like it for having an FX sensor rather than DX.
A while ago, (2012) I obtained a Leica M9-P and a few Zeiss lenses, that are specifically made for Leica cameras. But I also own a few Leica lenses. Both, the Zeiss and Leica lenses are well built and extremely sharp and, with rare exceptions, are much better than anything produced in the Nikkor or Canon lens line up. However, with the Leica the work is done manually and requires a different approach to taking pictures: Taking time to do it right...The best camera in the world is the one you happen to have with you when a picture opportunity comes up...
