I agree. For me, the IIIf just fits and feels 100% right, and I tried real hard to not buy one but CL's, Voigtlanders, cheap/beat M's, nothing could pry my attention away from the III. I wouldn't trade it for the world.

You can pick up a good quality IIIc/f for a very reasonable price, and if you don't like it, you can probably sell it for what you paid for it without problem. Film loading is quirky, but it's not a huge issue at all. I've kind of grown to like the separate RF/VF, and like the 1.5x magnification in the RF.
