    A few months ago I got myself a Leica III (F) from 1933 along with a VIDOM finder, an Elmar 50/3.5 and an Elmar 90/4 - and I must say it's been the favorite camera to bring me with anywhere I go these days.

    I love the small size and how extremely simple it is to use.

    After I got it I added some filters, a hood and a Luigi halfcase.
    My M3 is feeling very jealous.... :smile:

    I love mine too. I use it with a Voigtlander 21mm or more recently a Industar 22. Great cheap little lens thats easy to clean inside and out.

    Great shots, lovely prints, Rich. Which film and paper did you use to make them ? Please don't neglect your M3, though. They're very sensitive characters and need your attention.
