    Up for sale is my Fed 3b with Industar 61 l/d 53mm f2.8 lens.
    The Fed is in good shape with no dents or scratches. All of the shutter speeds work and are accurate. The shutter curtains look good with no holes or burn marks. I used this camera for about 8 months before I replaced it with a Canon L1 so I no longer use this one. This camera got me hooked on LTM cameras and it was a great intro for not much money. The rangefinder is accurate and quite contrasty and the viewfinder is surprisingly clear and bright.
    The Industar is in pretty good shape. The glass is clear with no scratches or fungus and only a little bit of dust which doesn't effect the image. When I got it I had the lens cleaned out and re-lubed so the focus is smooth.

    Reasonable price for a nice RF body. I like the look of the 3a a little better, but it's a lot harder to find. I quite like my 3b.

    If you want to try RF photography, this would be a good starting place.

    I don't know the seller, just hoping the camera finds a good home.
