First, my apologies for yet another long radio silence. I’ve been renovating my new home, so I haven’t been taking a lot of pictures, and haven’t been close to a computer either.
Second, the follow-up to the missing-lever-problem I described three weeks ago. Back then, I mailed Leica’s spare parts service1, and within a few days got a reply that if I supplied them with my postal address, they’d send me a replacement lever free of charge2.
The new lever promptly arrived a few days later, so I can now once more preview how a picture would look with a lens I haven’t got…
Tomorrow, I’ll finally post another picture.
- I also contacted Will van Manen, the Dutch Leica repair technician who serviced my camera before I bought it, who also replied promptly that he could supply and re-attach the part, even if the inner coupling had gotten dislodged. [↩]
- Leicas may be expensive, but the service is great: Free parts on a second-hand, 54-year-old camera. [↩]
