I like to collect old Leica cameras and lenses. I occasionally purchased Leica stuffs on eBay auctions, and it always makes me satisfaction.

Leica M3. The finest 35 RF Film Camera ever produced.
Having been on the lookout for a good sample of this fine camera has been a pleasurable task.<br>When I purchased the one I found I was lucky in that it was just short of perfectly mint. The little<br>well known original seal was still in tact. This afforded me to have the finest craftsman perform an excellent cleaning, lubricating and adjusting service. This camera with my choice of the finest lenses has rendered pictures far beyond of what digital produces. (and digital is really great these days). There is a romance and realness to film that has yet to be matched. There are also the true photography experiences you get with a fine vintage camera as this Leica M3. One has to think a little when using this camera and in this day it is good to think and plan that perfect shot.<br>When going on a trip, no matter how near or how far, it's great to have a record of those places on film. For fast impulse shots, a good quality digital is very handy and easy. (you can be almost as quick with film). But it's the film that will bring back the most dramatic scenes and memories.<br>I recommend to anyone that wants that special clarity and natural real life appearance in their pictures to explore film photography. If you are sparked by this idea, find a nice Leica with a great Leica lens and<br>take that leap into real photography. You will be in for a pleasant journey.<br>L.L.Read full review

Best Leica Ever
I love the Leica M3 because it looks beautiful, yet is basic and simple. The camera is all mechanical and it works day in and day out, no batteries required. You will need a light meter or can go with the, 'sunny 16 rule,' for exposure and the camera comes with a self timer. The viewing systems of the M3 is one of Leica's best. The widest viewing lines in the viewfinder are 50mm, anything wider requires a separate viewfinder, if you can live with that focusing and composing are wonderful. Beauty and function make this my favorite Leica M camera.
