    If it's a fake let me know now, because I will admit plenty of ignorance when it comes to Leicas

    I have not done the math yet, I bought several other things (including a Birthday gift for my sister) when I got those. All in all I spent $403.00 (USD) today.

    So you decided to get a III, eh? That's not a IIIc--what're the numbers around the outside of the shutter speed dial?

    Sweet finds! I have a sweet spot for the Pentax, as I think my Spotmatic is one cool camera. Asahi glass is fantastic as well!

    First of all, I am by no means a Leica expert. The serial number and your pictures suggest it is a IIIf Black Dial. Apart from the 'thing' added on the winding knob, it looks the same as the pictures I found on a book about Leica. Even if it isn't the real thing, it looks like a well executed copy.

    Thanks, I had actually looked at the pentax before but turned it down for a couple reasons. Earlier this week I mistakenly bought a lens for it and figured I may as well. It's been sitting there for atleast a year, May as well free up some space in the booth, since I have additional glass for it.

    I was wondering about that, of all the pictures I have looked at I have not seen the hooked winding nob.

    I kinda like it though, makes for a nice quick and smooth wind.
