So, following the recommendations of
Wise Men, (that would be Roger Hicks)
I am now the proud if inexperienced owner
of a Leica IIIa and a pristine coated Summar.
I ran some Foma through it this afternoon:

I promise to do better in future efforts.
For now, I am very happy with this
combination of lens and film and light.
