  1. Hello! This is my first post to this forum and what better way to start it off but with asking for thoughts about a M3 with a 50/2 Dual Range Summicron I have the opportunity to buy locally. I currently have an M6 with a Zeiss 35mm 2.8 that I love, but I have been eyeing an M3 for quite a while. I only got a brief look at it the other day and was able to handle it for about a minute or two before I had to go. The viewfinder seems bright with a little dust and it seems to focus properly ( non of this is 100% since I was only able to spend a little time with it). I cant really remember what shape the metal of the body was in but I do know that the the leatherette will need replaced.I also did not have a chance to inspect internals or shutter speeds. The lens seems good and clear as well, no goggles though. It is a single stroke late model. I will be going back by today to pick up some film and plan to take a better look at it and hopefully take some pictures. The asking price for both together is $600.00, Is this something that I should not pass up? I will post pictures once I take a second look at it. Thanks!
  2. Just published a short review of the (quite)new Cine Still 50 iso Daylight film on my blog: http://rangefinderchronicles.blogspot.co.uk/2015/12/the-colour-of-film-cine-still-film-50.html?showComment=1449132023993 The photos are taken with a Leica M3 and 50mm Summilux ASPH Nick

  4. I have just rediscovered a couple of rolls of HP5+ which I shot in 1998, developed and filed away. They are of a trip to London I took on our wedding anniversary, but have never printed. As far as I can remember/guess they were taken with a Leica M3 and 50mm Summicron f2 but I have no idea what I processed them in. I have now scanned them, and they are mainly of Pearly Kings and Queens arriving for the traditional Harvest Festival service at the church of St. Martins-in-the-Fields which is on trafalgar Square, London. Here is just 4 as a taster (the first one also shows a Chelsea Pensioner) Gerry
  5. Hello all, Already having a M6 and M7, I just was offered a great deal on a double stroke Leica M3 camera from 1956 in excellent condition which I intend to buy. I have now a few weeks to test it before making the final decision, but I already like the design. Inserting a roll of film wasn't difficult either - fairly straight forward. The camera also comes with the Leica MR light meter which sits on the hotshoe of the camera. Standard lens on the camera is a version of the expandable 50/2 Summicron lens. So far I like the bright 0.92x viewfinder (even the slight blueish cast of the glass takes a bit to get used to). The only slight issue I currently have is that I am predominantly a 35 mm shooter, and I am using the Leica 35/2 (version IV) as my favorite lens. Would love to use this lens on the M3, but the M3 does not come with 35 mm frame lines. This leaves me with three options - getting an older 35/2 lens with goggles or an external 35 mm viewfinder to be inserted onto the hotshoe. Third possibility is to use 35 mm only with my M6 and M7 cameras which would limit my usage of the M3 restricting it to 50 and 90 mm (assuming I leave the MR light meter mounted on the hotshoe). I am not really eager to get another older 35/2 lens, and I wouldn't be able to use the MR light meter on the hotshoe when using an external 35 mm viewfinder. Potentially I could use the MR viewfinder handheld (or using another external light meter). Any advice/experience here from others who use the M3 with 35 mm lenses?
  6. Here is an interesting and mysterious story, something that I have never heard of before in the world of Leica: Two Leica M3 cameras with the exact same serial number. Apparently even Leica cannot figure out how this coincidence/miscue/event happened. https://petapixel.com/2017/01/21/seeing-double-curious-case-identical-twin-leica-m3s/
