Black paint Leica III


Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Some days I just can’t help myself, went to a camera fair today to hopefully purchase some M42 mount Takumar lenses and walked back out with a black paint Leica III in my hand. I honestly tried to resist but all that black paint with brassing and nickel hardware was too much of a temptation. Need to explain to my good lady now how come there’s another camera in the collection. ( it is nice though )

You don´t have enough cameras if she can tell that there is a new one sitting on the shelf.

I have so many black and nickel LTM cameras at this stage, I really don't know the actual number, but it could be more than 20. So I'm fooling myself as well as herself 😇. Some examples below. The first one on the left has 'serious brassing' ie. no black paint left at all.

This is a disease for which there is no known cure 🤭.

I have 144 black paint Leica thread mount cameras, but haven't added any in the last 5 years.  So I had the disease, the new challenge will be downsizing! 

I don’t have near that number, Alan, but you’ve reminded me of the need to count mine, maybe during the ‘dark months’. I have another black one due to arrive next week and a chrome one arrived last week.
