M3 recent CLA - with 35mm Summaron and M3 eyes -------User quality M3 ** SINGLE STROKE*** ---repost of my closed thread with wrong title--- Just the facts --- I like SLR's best. I ran some film in the past few months, it works nicely, exposures are even edge to edge. With decent clean 35mm f3.5. Eyes have a scratch and it is visible in view/ but not too distracting. Patch works great. Get a russian LTM for your 50mm .. I think Leica 50's are too expensive in any condition. This is equipped with a quick load spool option... still cut the leader. Photos tell the story and I point out all major blems. Well used M3, did many tasks at the local camera shop (was a Leica dealer into the early 1980's)... ...... spent the last 2-decades on the copy stand. Set in working order, just add strap and Tri-X. $995.... shipped FED Ex ground on me.... unless you want it faster. ... I have pointed out many use/age marks in finish, this Leica has been making photos off and on since about 1958 and it shows. CLA has it in shape for another useful decade.
