If you’re not thrilled with the idea of being burdened with a camera bag while out shooting, Leica’s lens holder lets you attach a second lens to the underside of either your Leica MP or M7 film cameras using the tripod mount. It will of course add a bit of extra weight to the whole package depending on what lens you’ve got hanging down there, but sometimes a heavy camera’s not a bad thing when you need to keep it steady during a longer shutter. In fact, Leica even positions the accessory as a way to add a stabilizing handle to your camera, and as a miniature tripod. (Just make sure you’ve got a lens cover on!) As for pricing, since it’s an official Leica accessory they seem to range from ~$180 to $200+ online.
