Subject: [Leica] Another little-known factoid

"For photographers such as Henri Cartier Bresson, the simplicity of the
Leica and the quality of its Zeiss lenses allowed new ways of working and a
freedom unimaginable with the large format cameras previously used."
(Crawford, M. 2005. The Essential Black and White Photography Manual" p. 18)

Well, I had heard that HCB may have at one point used a miscegenational
combination of a Leica III with a Sonnar in LTM mount. But I doubt that
Crawford knows that.
