Pros:Very much, size, silence, reliability. Other than today's catafalques who dare to call themselves professional machines.
Cons:it's up to having a dark room if it does not make sense.
Opinion:I bought it from a crazy collector a couple of years ago. I must say that I have never challenged such a machine body, it seems a natural extension of one's body. The only flaw? Alas it is that it is not digital and you are not in a dark room. Digital machines with this portability and made in the shot will never be built.
Pros:Very reliable mechanics, robust and high precision brass car body, very accurate rangefinder, remarkable both original and commercial optical parks thanks to the universal screw engagement M39, popular costs, stainless charm, hence the Leica myth
Cons:Lack of meter, viewfinder without parallax corrections and uncomfortable (the situation greatly improves with the various outside viewers), unsuitable film loading, although taking our hand is nothing prohibitive, there are many online tutorials.
Opinion:I have a IIIf red numbers of 1954 with its Elmar 50 f / 3.5 original always red numbers. Initially I did not know how to appreciate it, but now I love it and consider it the main car of my kit replacing the M6. Mechanical is overwhelming, the shutter sound, on balls, is just an imperceptible whisper. The range finder with its magnification of 1.5 x (it is about 100 mm is absolutely accurate.The main defects are lack of meter, rangefinder in a separate box and no parallax correction, however these defects with a load Insufficient film (you have to hand us your hand) makes it an ideal machine for a Zen photo, a small pocket display (or even one of the many Apps on the phone) combined with a bit of reading light and it's hard to miss a photo and is always ready to shoot.It is always with me and wherever I go in the world I am sure to bring back good pictures at home.The lens park is exterminated both original Leica, VGT, Russians and so much else having'universal M39 mount. Both the car body and the lenses (apart from a few special focuses) are at more popular prices, a little more are valued the various external mirrors and some special accessory. It is still a beautiful world to discover with a lot of calm and philosophy. To date, with a maximum of about 500 €, a good machine is brought home and its goal, at best a good internal, lubricated, and calibrated cleaning can assure a faithful companion who for many shades will no longer ask for anything, I can assure you that resuming in hand after about 30 years of stopping and crawling very well, I enjoyed it all summer. Just be careful that not everyone is able to put your hands on it, so be sure to know about the repairer's experience.
