You will have fun, this is a great camera, you will enjoy a lot I am sure but there are different rules : not anymore 25 pics to have 1 great one you will try to change the ratio.... πŸ˜‰πŸ€£. Looking forward to your feedback soon.

A shot of my Leica IIIf...

which was produced from 1950-1952/53 depending on who you ask... The three Canon "S Mount" lenses (L39 compatible): 28mm f/2.8, 50mm f/1.8, and 135mm f3.5. The 28 and 50 do the heavy lifting. Casey ...  

The way I look at it.....

 By: Baron - Mr Red : December 7th, 2018-06:54
The process involved in taking out this type of kit involves a totally radical shift in understanding of photography. It is a totally different type of day out with the camera. I think i see it as a real opportunity to learn many skills that digital allow... 

+ 1 this is it exactly

This is real photography yes you will learn a lot but surely also enjoy a lot. I am eager to hear your reaction after some time using it...

Working analog is different then working digital. Please share some results. Geo

OK, now I have an excuse to post a picture of my M4...

Acquired it recently as a companion for my MA. Enjoy your M3, beautiful cameras. ...  

They're beefy little cameras

Brass bodies, all metal parts. A pretty no-compromise camera.

Here's one

 By: logan2z : December 7th, 2018-11:29
Not the best quality scan. I print my photos in the darkroom and only use scans as proofs, but this will give you some idea. Shot with a Summarit 35mm/2.4 ASPH lens. ...  

Thank you!
