OK,I don’t know if the title made any sense to you but the whole thing does not make sense to me. I will speak slowly: this is a lens holder — made by Leica — that needs the use of a second lens — also made by Leica — to be used together as a stability-enhancing handle — for the Leica MP and M7 cameras. Comprende?
According to Leica, the “Leica Lens Holder M allows you to keep a complete mini photo outfit – a camera and two lenses – hanging on your carrying strap and ready for use.” You simply screw it into the tripod bushing, insert a second lens into its bayonet mount, and use the contraption as a stability-enhancing handle or as a mini tripod. The M system lens holder fits all analogue Leica M models except the Leica M5. If I may say so, that’s probably the most expensive mini tripod I’ve ever seen.
Yes, I checked and it’s not April 1st. Not only did someone at Leica come up with the idea — but it got approved!
