  1. IIIG, 50 Collapsible Summicron, Leicavit -- all triple mint.
    "It is naught, it is naught, saith the buyer. But when he is gone on his way then he boasteth."
    $1,000
     
  2. This is considered unsubstantiated Paul, until you show us a picture of it. (drool, drool)
     
  3. Too hard for me to do -- I'm a film guy. My LF reputation is impeccable -- ask around!!!
     
  4. Now, we've known Paul a long time, I'm sure this is legit (but come on, Paul, let's see it)!
     
  5. I'll try to figure out how to do it with cellphone tomorrow, doubters!
     
  6. Here it is:

  7. ...another with me.
     
  8. Here it is:

  9. Ah, but is that really you? Is the photo on your home page really you? ..... :)
    It's a beauty though, all working well despite it's age and low usage I hope.
     
  10. It works better than I do, Clive.
     
  11. Two ooh's and an ahhhh!!!!
     
  12. But it can't see pictures like you can, Paul. A great find in this age of soaring used Leica prices. One of Leitz's best.
     
  13. Love the IIIG, but never had one. You are a lucky dog!
     
  14. You naughty guy, not long ago you said you will NOT be buying any more Leica gear !!! Well done. Enjoy it, I have one of
    those.
    Regards

  15. That's a real gem. I 've owned the same threesome since 1966 and it is my favorite for shooting with the LTM Summicron 50. With the Leicavit it is just the best LTM setup for lefties. I do recommend a lens hood and/or a UV filter to protect that very soft summicron lens coating. My best good shots per roll average is with a IIIg with that setup. The IIIg was built to last, I hope you enjoy it every time you take it out.
     
  16. Chris, UV and shade on now.
     
  17. My dream was to get the IIIg and get that new 35mm Summicron screw-mount they made a few years. I did pick up the 35mm Leica viewfinder they made at the time but that was as far as I got. Heh. Nice work, Paul!
     
  18. John, I presume you are referring to the screw mount ASPH 35mm lens. Given the quality of the IIIg, that combination would be near ideal for many who are less concerned with historical compatability of optics and body Leica.
