My first serious camera was Leica IIIF. I bought it for 400 dollars with uncoated Summitar. I bought it from a professor brang a coated Summitar also and a Leica R with Summicron. Than I bought another two III F s from him also. I preferred the uncoated one because thick glass was exciting as the crystal ball. I did not see a more mystic thing in my life. When buying or before buying , I did not ask anyone to buy it or not or which one. I was knowing what I was doing and sure about the picture quality.
Than I sold the Leicas and bought two Magnum big prints from a Magnum Photographer Ara Guler. Auction house priced them after 20 years 12000 dollars. I made 400 dollars 12000 dollars and I was sure about what I was doing.
