Let us all welcome Ken Hansen as a site sponsor!

OK, all of my site sponsorships have been filled up! Today I proudly welcome Ken Hansen, Leica dealer extraordinaire to the list of those who support this site. There are many choices out there in Leica land but my dealers of choice has always been Ken Hansen, B&H Photo and Dale Photo. Three top choices for Leica cameras and lenses. I have dealt with and bought from all three of them and received nothing but the best in return in regards to speed and service. Ken has been around since 1958 selling Leica and has also owned and operated a nice photo shop in NYC for many years. He has since retired from Retail but now sells Leica from his home office and usually has stock on hand of everything Leica (well, besides the elusive 50 Lux ASPH though dealers do get one or two a month it seems). He even usually has the film classics like the M6’s or M7’s in stock as well as the little film cameras like the CM and Minilux.

Ken has been with me and my site since the first days, loaning me lenses or cameras to review. He has been a great supporter of this site and I have been happy to send him business, as he has always provided stellar service to me and others that have raved about him to me via e-mail.

So when you need camera gear be sure to shop at the sponsors of this site as without their help this site would not exist! You can e-mail Ken Hansen anytime at [email protected] and ask about what he has available in Leica (I have bought an MP, M8.2, X1 and varous lenses from Ken). You can visit Dale Photo HERE and browse their online shop. They sell Leica as well as Artisan & Artist cases and bags for your Leica (I have bought 2-3 Leica lenses from David at Dale, super fast delivery and top notch service). Let’s not forget LenRentals.com where you can RENT Leica lenses! No need to spend thousands up front. Try them out 1st! I think lensrentals may be the only place to rent Leica glass and even the M9.

For all of you Sony NEX shooters, J-Tec provides cool accessories for your NEX-5 so check them out if you haven’t already. Of course there is also B&H Photo who I have been raving about since the start as well. I have spent probably over $200,000 with them in 10 years and never had one issue. B&H is great for Leica as well as ANY other brand of camera or accessory. They sell just about everything and when you buy from them using my link I get a small percentage that helps this site go on! They also usually have a nice supply of used Leica.

So thanks to all of my sponsors and for those who were asking about sponsoring the site, I am now all filled up! I only planned to offer four spots and only to those whom I know and trust and easily recommend. I had some shady sites trying to pay me pretty good $$ to advertise here but I turned them down. Nope, what you see here are the best of the best IMO for Leica and everything else photographic!

New site sponsor! I am happy to welcome lensrentals.com to the site as a sponsor. They are the largest online site for renting cameras, lenses and even lighting. The awesome part is that they rent out a huge selection of Leica M glass and yes, even the M9. I rented a few lenses from them over a year ago and their service was fast and the items came well packed and I had NO complaints. I am thrilled to have them here to not only help support this site but to also spread the word to all of you about their rental service.

Check out their site here or you can jump direct to their Leica M page here. BTW, they also rent the Leica S2! You can always reach their site using their banner that will be displayed on the right hand side of any page.

Lots of requests over the last 2 months asking me if I would accept advertising, and how much it would be. Well, I just released Advertising info so if anyone is interested, click on over to my advertising info page to read about it and to see what is available. Traffic is growing and averages 20K page views daily for September with July and August coming in at 516,000 page views for the month! Since mid November 2009, this site has dished out almost 3.8 million views! Exciting times!
