William Fagan’s presentation to LHSA members on collecting old Leicas was very well received by all accounts. I learned quite a few new things from William’s encyclopaedic knowledge of Leica cameras from the Model I through to the M6. It’s vast subject but the presentation manages to cover most of the highlights of the progress from the original Barnack Leica to the modern film camera.
We now have permission to reproduce the presentation and I hope Macfilos readers will find it as useful as I did.
The LHSA – the International Leica Society – is a wonderful source of information, camaraderie and opportunity for all Leica fans. There are many benefits of membership, including exclusive presentations and the opportunity to attend the annual gathering which takes place in different parts of the world. The next event, however, will take place in 2022 in Dublin because of the delays caused by the pandemic.
We have managed to arrange a special Macfilos LHSA membership offer which offers an extended digital first-year of 15 months for the price of only $60. Join if you can and support this organisation which does so much for the world of Leica.
You can also win a Leica M10-R body in the LHSA sweepstake, with the book, “Oskar Barnack: From the Idea to the Leica” as a second prize, worth %60.
