Finally got the new camera back from it's service and ran a roll of film through it.
I picked up this Leica iii f in Japan but it needed a service and new light curtains so here it is at last. Until now, Minolta cameras have always been familiar to me but when I held the Leica it felt close to perfect. The size is quite small but it has a reassuring weight that really helps to keep it steady when shooting. Being made in 1952 this camera is totally manual, but after being tricked so many times by my Minolta light meter I am happy to take control of metering.
First roll looks good so far... can't wait to scan some pictures.
