    Last Friday (March 12th), a young lady with a Leica M3 and some old git, who was taking a snap with a film camera, had his photo taken by Fuji GFXs w/ a 23 mm lens ;)

    In my opinion, the best ever Leica because they got the viewfinder just right.

    It's a chrome MX with black top plate, I can confirm because I met up with Jack at 4:30 PM today.

    Actually, Steve, it's a Panda MX ... I found a black top bit for it, but,
    it still has a silver bottom :eek: ... ;)

    Cheers,

    It is very, very good, but the IIIf is better.

    You keep saying that. With any luck, it'll drive M3 prices down to the point I feel justified in buyng another! :p

    No chance, it'll just drive the III prices up.

    The body is the Pentax S1 of 1961-64, no self-timer. Predecessor to the later Asahi Pentax Spotmatic 500 and 1000.

    Maybe not. If the shutter's gone, it would cost a lot more than it's worth to fix and this way someone can put it on the mantlepiece and admire it! :D

    Funnily enough, my first thought was "Hope it died first!"

    Well, employees used to get a timepiece when they retired ...
    You could attach the clock with a body cap if it's still working.

    My last workplace gave out mirrors for long service, so you could see what it had done to you....
