Here’s a little more information on our first prize kit. LEICA M2 Rangefinder Camera One of the best ways to describe the Leica M2 is a street photography tank with a sniper’s viewfinder. Sure, today’s world is one of digital speed and automated convenience, but nothing quite beats the experience and feeling of photographing with an all metal, …
