    thank you all.

    I no longer want a Leica M3.

    I'll shoot with what I have

    Canham 45 DLC.... It was great at first, but living in MN, the camera would not lock up tight in the winter! I would set up a shot, go to put in the film holder and just opening the back to insert the film holder and the tension of the spring on the film back gate would cause the rear standard to move out of whack! Not was I was expecting for what was supposed to be a solid camera.... I sold it for a Chamonix and had change for an additional lens!

    Same thing happened to me with a Seagull TLR. Total junk, which was too bad because the lens on mine (the 4 element lens) was SUPER SHARP.

    I think I am more likely to disappoint my cameras.

    thing would be heavier than a brick if you replaced all the plastic with metal. That being said I can third the off-set tripod mount and it being annoying. Quick plate and a dremel fixed that real quick though!

    Voigtlander R3A. The shutter jammed twice within a couple of weeks. I'll stick to the Leicas. I do agree about the cult thing however. Similar to the Apple religion.

    I like take pictures more with Nikon F3 than with my Leica cameras - but I think this is mainly because I prefer SLR over rangefinders. Is there anyone who has bad disappointing opinion about Leicas but likes and uses rangefinders, and prefer rangefinders over SLR?

    Horizon 202. Noise, flare, distortion, uneven exposure, hilarious midget filter set. Sold it after a few months. Good for a few laughs and scaring a few tourists.

    Don't like to pour any more fuel on the anti Leica M fire as it gets some people a bit red-cheeked but I have never really warmed to my M6. Least favourite of my 35mm cameras after F4, OM1 and XPan. Probably more like disinterested than disappointed.

    It is interesting that you compare the Leica and Apple cults -- Steve Jobs compared the iPhone 4 to a Leica when he introduced the former.

    (Actually, I use Apple products and like them, but I agree that the cult surrounding them is both annoying and helps keep the prices high.)
