I decided to try one. My reason is simply because it is one of those cameras that I've always wanted to own. The CL might be a "better" camera but those barnack leica's are just so alluring. Some cameras I buy and I know I do not like so I sell them. So I can perhaps try one and sell it if it doesn't work for me. But I have two questions regarding the bodies.
1. I'm mostly considering the IIIc/IIIf because they are consistently cheaper but the IIIg is larger/heavier right? Even though it is more expensive I would consider one if it were similar in weight/size as the IIIc/IIIf's...
2. Slow shutter speeds. This is very personal but do you consider yourself able to hold these just as slow as the Leica M's? although very different, I couldn't hold my XA's at very slow shutter speeds. This isn't a major deterrent, I am mostly curious.
