    Scored!

    I belong to a group of camera collectors and today was the once a month 'swap and sell' day. Some other collector decided to part with his Leica M3 DS and was selling it well under the 'normal' price for such camera (E-bay or other). :mrgreen:

    I bought it within two minutes of bering posted! Now I'm waiting for it! :D

    M3 arrived today. What a piece of art! Well... it might not be the prettiest M3 I've ever seen, having some light scuffs on top and bottom plates and a very dim RF (which I will clean once I get some time off from the Nutcracker Ballet) but it purrs like a kitty in love. Speeds are correct from B,1,2...to 1000. I'm in love... :D
