Leica M3

~explored :)

Ain't that amazing: you sell one digital camera (Leica M8) and can buy 2 of the best film cameras ever made (Rolleiflex SL66 + Leica M3) and two great lenses (80mm Zeiss Planar + 50mm Zeiss Distagon) and a scanner and film and chemicals AND get all the fun you've got with film as well?! :))

This beauty arrived today and you can't imagine how happy I am. A dream came true and I hope I will still have this camera when I'm old and grumpy. It's the complete opposite of the SL66, so light, so quiet, so...sigh :)

Edit: Well, one day after the beauty arrived, I broke a bone in my knee. Guess new uploads won't be that quick :(

    Awesome camera. (My cousin traffics in like pieces). (I still don't understand how it focuses). This is a nice body style, slim and easy to grip. (I've a lowly Nikon FE that I very much like, but wish it had come with a leather pouch, instead of that paper one Nikon had at the time). Nice camera, and nice shot. Thanks for sharing.
