Yes, the IIIS is a great camera. I use the 28mm most of the time, and have a 50mm 2.8 and the 135mm f4. I can't really get on with the 135mm - the focus/viewfinder area is just too small. I had mine a while and then the cord broke, so it went on its holidays to Chris Sherlock in NZ, and came back CLAd and fixed. I also have a IIc which sees action from time to time. I thought this one was going to have to go on its hols too, as the shutter kept sticking, but I cleaned it out with spray alcohol and then lubed it with watch oil, and so far its behaving.
