The Leica Reflex Forum is for those who love Leica Reflex Cameras.   

 
We recognize that Leica invented the modern, 35mm camera in 1913 and unleashed it on
the world in 1923.  We know that most of their production 
since has been of their superb rangefinder models. 
However, Leica have also built some of the world's finest reflex cameras,  
from the Leicafles, throught the SL & SL2, R3 up to the R9
 
and the DM-R, as well as their new S & SL series.

While discussion of anything Leica (film or digital) is obviously welcomed, with the demise of
the "R" system, conversation has changed to the use of Leica (and other) lenses on
other cameras ... including the mirrorless models by Sony, Fuji, Panasonic & Olympus;
not to mention, the new, mirrorless Leica SL!

This is a polite, general photography list , with a low volume of posts, but a high signal-to-noise ratio.
And we all benefit, by sharing the photos we take with these cameras.
