Leica's and Nikons go together like peanut butter and jelly.
I saw this mannequin display somewhere I think it was a LHSA meeting with a
nikon hanging off one shoulder and a Leica off the other of these armless
things. "Kits" I think they were calling them I think their were Brits
involved. Brits like that word Kits.
Also in the camera bag they look good next to each other like puppies or

The perfect medium format hands on no nonsense companion to a Leica in a
came bag is a twin lens Rolleiflex; a 2.8 f. the Rolleiflex makes a Leica,
any Leica seem noisy.

The best deal in photography today is Hasselblad. Less then half the size of
those RB RZ monsters. 3x the elegance.  A cube from Sweden. And again its
all about glass. Zeiss. As in real Carl Zeiss, Oberkochen.
Also found on the Rolleiflex.
