Levi's Workshop for Photographers in Soho, NYC

Popped into the Levi's Workshop for Photographers in Soho (18 Wooster Street at Grand) last week. It's a really cool playground for photographers in the NYC area. You can rent out vintage cameras, as well as modern Leica digitals. They also have large format printers and studio space on a first come first served basis. I had my new Voigtlander 50mm f1.1 lens (I traded my Nikon 85mm f1.4 lens for this, since I hardly ever use digital) on the Leica M6 and it did a good job in dim lighting even with 160 ISO film.
