  1. Fascinating replies ๐Ÿ‘ M4 and MP seem to be leading the pack. I expected more M2/3/7 to be honest
  2. I guess I'm not alone in owning a few M bodies. Depending on the moment I use most of them regularly and each one 'feels' different and I switch from one to the other and find joy using each one. I often think about, if I could only keep one, which would it be? My M2,M3,M4 BP, M6 or M7. Depending on the day of the week, what I had for dinner, which wine did I drink etc. etc. I sometimes think this one or that one! But, after wrangling with myself I have come to the conclusion (today ๐Ÿ˜Š) that it would have to be the M4. Its obviously very hypothetical and an emotion
  3. After that quote Iโ€™m not sending it.. would be almost double that I paid for the camera. need to get to the root of the problem. am almost sure it has to do with the take up spool and baseplate will switch from my M2 and try that andy
  4. Thanks for the tip, will try it again before sending in for โ‚ฌ 950.00 plus parts !! best andy
  5. OMG just received the quote ๐Ÿ™ˆ might need to rethink this.
  6. Nice ๐Ÿ‘ hereโ€™s mine ๐Ÿ˜Š
  7. Have decided to send it to Solms for a refurbishment...just waiting for the quote.
  8. It started with the baseplate change
  9. Now I donโ€™t know if itโ€™s relevant to my initial question but my first roll developed today shows very irregular distances between the images. some are ok then frame to frame is up to 2 cm then ok then 1 cm with no regularity. the entire roll shows this uneven spacing. can the take up spool or baseplate be the cause anyone ? when I advance the film I sense an occasional โ€šslipโ€˜... it is a DS M3 by the way .
  10. Yes very happy indeed, just shot a roll on my M3. might post a scan tomorrow i just saw the link posted by JC and it appears to be from 1957 and indeed a very early copy.
  11. Hi just a quick question.. am looking to date my Lux and from what I could find so far it seems to be a very early model from around 1959. serial number 1640916 does that sound about right? best andy

    here my beauty ๐Ÿ˜Š best andy 9071980A-3D8F-4CED-A0D4-3FAE23A3983B_1_201_a.heic
  13. nice idea....got it tucked away in a tri-x film canister ...no idea what it sells for? if anyone needs one just pm me andy
  14. Ive just taken it off and will use standard spool...
  15. Ah thanks so much for the clarification . I am guessing the seller didn't know it was attached. appreciate the info andy
