Nice set, I particularly like the black one.

Hi Topsy, thanks. The top two are early single strokes (1958 and 1959), so spring return mechanism. The bottom one is a late 1965 model. You might notice detail differences, like the rewind lever lengths and the lugs...

Thanks, I toyed with the idea of an M3 for a while but in the end went for an M2 because I prefer the 35mm FOV, this one came with the collapsing 50mm but I use it with a 35 most of the time.

Forgive the intrusion of an M2 into the M3 thread.

The M3 😍 is nothing special but what brand of coffee is this?     😇

@spero pa

You didn't understand the joke. It was just a joke. I just asked (seriously) about the coffee .......

Or did I not understand you now?

Your M3 is beautiful.

Hi! After years and years of grinding away at college, post-grad, and dreaming of that first paycheck/purchase, I finally got it!! Here's my early 1955 M3 DS with the Voigtlander 50mm f3.5 Heliar

Congratulations.  That's a fine looking outfit.  Deferred gratification is a bitch but a lovely one once you reach her.  For me forty years ago, it was either a Kenwood receiver and JBL speakers and a Technics turntable, or an Olympus OM-2 with 50mm 1.4 Zuiko kit lens.  The stereo system won, but the camera came a few months later.  I sold the stereo equipment a couple of years later but i still have the camera and lenses.  Used it to chronicle my two daughters growing up.  Don't use them much since bitten by the Leica bug, but I'll never part with them.  Your's looks like a keeper and hope you have many years and good experiences together.  I've used my M3 the last four weekends and I'm always amazed by it's ergonomics and buttery smooth operations.  

You made a good choice.  Best wishes.

Don't forget to use a lens-hood with this lens.

After my first M6 in 2002, I got M9 in 2010, and two M10 in 2019. I love all M and finally manage to get this one.

and I love my M3 too (both camera and ///M3).

      Hi all, I did a search and it doesn’t look like we have a thread for this beautiful camera.
      I recently acquired this example from Meister camera and am looking forward to putting a film through it.
      The mechanical precision of the camera is amazing.  Easily on par with my M3.  The meter seems to be accurate based on comparing the readings I get from my Nikon F3.  The weight with lens and leather half case is about 1300 grams compared to about 950 for my M3 with leather half case, Voigtlander meter and Zeiss 50mm f2 planar.  The original leather half case is actually quite heavy at about 200g, but I like to use these to keep my cameras in mint condition.

      After two months working with the M I can say: I love my M.
      It sounds wonderful. It feels wonderful. Takes great pictures. And also thanks to Luigi it looks great!

      Not sure I can "love" a mechanical object but, in the spirit of the forum, I thought I ought to start a new thread for Leica's new film camera. (In truth, I think the M-A is really a variation of the MP rather than a different camera but I suppose Leica would like us to see it differently). It is certainly a handsome camera and, strangely, the M-A also feels a very modern camera.

      Hi everyone,
       
      My first post after lurking for ages. I thought all the M2's were feeling neglected and couldn't stand for it any longer!
       
      Mine is lovely and with my 35 Sumilux asph. produces lovely results! No need to go digital for me. It is much easier just to get a scan when I need it! In berlin there are some really good labs too...
       
      Cheers and to lovely M2's
       
      Adrian
