    Hi all :smile: I'm looking for a light seal kit for an R3 for a friend of mine. I think there is someone on here who makes light seal kits for all kinds of cameras, isn't there?? Thanks!

    Leica R3? Where do you live?

    I called and ordered a replacement kit for two R3s a couple of years ago direct from Leica repair, and received them very quickly. Original materials, including for around the 'window' for the film canister. It cost something like US$12.00 and they didn't gouge on the shipping.

    Hey Lee, thanks! I contacted Jon and he doesn't have any kits for the R3. I will look into the Leica repair place :smile:
