Leica M6, 50mm f2.
I was starting to feel like I was taking the same types of pictures over and over with the wonderful but hefty Pentax 6x7. I wanted to take riskier and more experimental compositions. I purchased a Leica M6 and a 50mm f2. I carried the camera with me everywhere, relishing the freedom of not needing a tripod. I now love the camera because of the photographs I get from it.
