Any experience with this seller?

  1. Has anyone had buying experience with "O.BARNACK" -- his(her) Ebay name?

    Feedback numbers & score are excellent, but I'd appreciate your response.
  2. I have made two purchases from him/her.A Summitar 50mm and a Hektor lens hood. All as described. Prompt shipment. All smooth and correct.
  3. Didn't you just buy a IIIf from this seller? Of course, the name is strangely similar to the inventor of the Leica, Oskar Barnack. Hope all is well.
  4. Vic, just very quiet since Sunday nite's auction.
  5. I bought my IIIF from this seller a little over three years ago. It came very promptly and as described and I ended up buying several more items over the last several years.
  6. I bought a IIIc. O. Barnack described the shutter and film winding as completely non-functional. I found it to be hanging up, but after firing it many times at all speeds, all speeds from 1/20 to 1/500 began working correctly. The winding-on was fine. I sent it off to John Maddox in late December, and it is presently getting a CLA.

    So I think O. Barnack was fair and conservative in his description of the IIIc.
  7. Got body & lens today: both seem great -- lens focus a little stiff!
