The second is what I was more excited about and the focus of this post. At my next forced stop I took a quick look through a small plastic bin of film cameras that were mostly from the 80's and 90's. Nothing really fancy but one caught my eye. Sitting there in a brown leather case was my new Leica IIIf with 5cm Summar f2 lens. The top of the leather was missing so the Leica logo was prominently displayed right next to a little paper tag that said "$25.00 untested." I took a quick look at it to make sure it wasn't totally smashed and walked out of the store with a huge grin and 25 dollars poorer.
This is what I had found.
Not to shabby for 25 dollars. I bought some drug store Kodak ISO200 and loaded it up. It seems to advance and operate ok. I guess we will see what the pictures look like when they come back though.
