In the LUG of old we were not going on and on ad nauseam about toy cameras.
Such dialog didn't belong here. The Leica itself is all about compactness.
But even more compact cameras like the Contax T3 and the Rollei 35 and a
Nikon something with roman numeral dials all took full frame 24x36 film. And
a full frame 24x36mm Minox. They were life support systems built around a
35mm cartridge.
Half frame could not be found new. It would have been stupid.
