    I was trying to buy a Leica IIIc Body several months ago and had all but given up. I placed a bid on a camera Youxin Yin was selling and never figured I'd win. This was last of several Leicas he was selling and it flew under the radar and I bought it for $107.50. Camera has some light usage marks. The Shark skin type Vulcanite is original and in good shape. Camera was CLA’d by Youxin Yin and the viewfinder and rangefinder are clean and clear. It has a new beam splitter and the rangefinder double image has very good contrast. Shutter curtains are new. The camera works smoothly and included a take up spool. It looks better than the pictures:


    Congrats! That is one beautiful IIIc!

    i've gotten oodles of stuff from second hand places or garage sales.

    my first ever camera, a canon ae-1, i got for 10 dollars. Someone else was checking it out at the time and I was waiting to pounce on it as soon as he left. When he did, I grabbed it and went to pay. I'm so glad I did because that camera was a true workhorse. I shot so many what i call powerful images with that camera. Just check it out on my flickr:

    other stuff i obtained at local sales and lots was a Yashica-A, Argus C-3, Some funny looking old film cameras, and lastly my minolta hi-matic rangefinder. It was broken supposedly, and I got it for a very cheap price. Soon after fiddling around with it, I got it to work and now it shoots.

    Quite happy with my recent finds.

    I should have written Youxin Ye. He is a great guy and an excellent craftsman.

    This is the first I'm hearing of this gentleman -- who is he, and what does he do? Trader/seller, repairman, ??

    Youxin does repairs and CLAs. His work is excellent and his rates are very low. He is highly recommended by the members of:

    http://rangefinderforum.com/

    You can do a search there for more opinions.
    He is also very good about answering email.

    He is a super Leica repairman. (I am not a big Leica guy, but the repairs I did sent to him were perfect, quick and reasonable.)

    That's a great resource -- thanks. I have several Leicas and am always glad to know of someone who can work on them.

    Today, a Honeywell Pentax Spotmatic for $10 and a Vivitar V3000 for $5. I'm guessing the Vivitar is a K mount-the other Vivitar camera I found a while back is a M42.
