Please help KenRockwell..com


LEICA TL2 (also comes in black; about $1,950) bigger. I'd get mine at B&H in either color.

This ad-free website's biggest source of support is when you use those or any of these links to my personally-approved sources when you get anything, regardless of the country in which you live. Get yours only from the approved sources I use myself for the best prices, service, return policies and selection. Thanks for helping me help you! Ken.
