The darkness on the left side is, ahem, part of my camera strap. I could tell you that it was intentionally placed there, but then you’d know I was lying.
Unfortunately, there were no do-overs on this one… it was a candid moment.

People sometimes write and ask me how I test a given Leica lens + rangefinder combination for focus accuracy.
Well, for near distances I trust the good people at Vaseline.
On a related note, I dislike the grunt work of testing film equipment. The arduous process of developing and scanning film seems even more arduous when the test results are off. That is why I rarely sell gear that I know is working well (ha, ha…).
Fortunately, this time everything looks good.
