    1940 Standard, just back from being serviced. It was very brassy, now it has new wind and rewind knobs and a few other new parts.

    I recall being instructed that in classical Greece circa 4/300bc the older generation were moaning about young people.

    I have had a camera with such a tight spool that I needed pliers to remove it. But I guess he has no fingernails to grip it as he had trouble opening the catch on the bottom of the camera.
    I  feel as if I want to tell him to read the correct way to load a film, to start by cutting the correct leader. Then don’t remove or replace the lens in it’s collapsed position, it might bump into the rangefinder roller. And you don’t need to remove the lens at all, and don’t put your finger into the gate as the shutter might be damaged if it closes on your finger.
    Read some books, read this forum, talk to someone. Don’t put something you don’t understand on the internet.

    Skip a generation, but go backwards not forwards. I am now back to a 1a. An “O” replica would be the next step.

    Yup.  A Stereo Realist.   .....what’s different?  Well, I painted the metal Black!   
    The popularity of the Realist was astonishing.  There are stories of people waiting in lines to trade in Leicas for them!   Production ramped up, to the point the David White Company changed the location of the stamped serial number from the base, to the side.  The reason, to speed up production! Overall, 125,000 were built from 1947 to 1971, with 2,000 being the 1050 Custom.  At the end, Olden Camera had the remaing stock and built ‘bitsa’ cameras from a mix of Custom and Standard parts.  ••••• Seton Rochwite, the Inventor, late in the production personally hand built a very small number of Stereo Realists using his polorizer system.  They have a special Seton Rochwite Insturments lens cover and are immensely collectible.

    In the early 70's I was a student (graphic arts and photography).  At lunchtimes, I would often walk to the city centre to look in Frank Jessop's and Cecil Jocobs chemists shop windows at the range of used Rollei tlr's, Leicas, Contaxes and MPP cameras on display.
    I really liked the look of the Leica iiic and iiif and made a promise to myself that one day I'd buy one.
    Fast forward 50 years with a career as a self employed photographer behind me, I've finally bought a iiif!
    My iiif RD ST with a 50mm elmar red scale and Fison arrived a couple of days ago.  From the serial number, the camera is the same vintage as myself (1954).  It is a joy to use and the first roll of film will be processed today.

    Pyrogallol reacted to pegelli in Photos taken with Leica LTM.   
    The first serious camera I got from my father to learn the ropes was a 1949 IIIf with an Elmar 50/3.5. The camera was later exchanged for a M2 but I still have (and use) the lens.
    Here's three shots I took in oktober 1973 with the IIIf/Elmar combo of a special excursion steam train in Enschede (Netherlands). Film was AGFA ISS developed for 100 ASA.

    A couple of days ago I managed to acquire a Black-Paint version of the Light Lens Lab 35mm Summicron '8 Element' reverse-engineered recreation.
    There's another snap of it elsewhere but for now here is a pic of her - alongside the similarly recreated IROOA hood - resting on my M2;
