Where can I buy a Leica camera? Useful information.

The German firm Leica is considered one of the best (and one of the most expensive) of film cameras. They say that Leica lenses and cameras (film cameras) are the best in the world. I can say, from my personal experience (I own 2 SLR Leica R4 bodies and three lenses), that Leica camera/lenses are very expensive comparing quality/value with other firms (ie Nikon, Canon etc). For example a camera body of Leica R probably is a a little better from a much cheaper one of ie. Nikon FM2 or F3. Also an expensive lens of Leica 50mm/1.4 it can be a little better that a much cheaper lens with the same characteristics from Nikon/Minolta.

By the way, Leica has solid, metallic and beautiful cameras/lenses. Nowadays, many photographers buy digital cameras and they sell their old cameras in very low prices. A paradise of buying a used Leica camera/lens is the Leica shop in Berlin. All the cameras that you see in the above two photographs (shot by my mobile phone) are from that shop.

9-Dec-2007: Musicians from Bulgaria at the central train station of Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

In these two photographs we see two Bulgarian musicians at the central train station of Amsterdam, The Netherlands (9-Dec-2007). The first photograph is shot using a tele-lens 100mm and the second one using a 28mm lens. Here we can see the difference between the aesthetics of a tele-lens and an wine-angle lens. The photograph from the tele-lens is more "flat/compressed" in comparison with wide-angle. The whole set of photos that I shoot from these musicians (and I choose the above two) are in the next image:
