FS: User Leica M3DS
I'm selling a Leica M3 Double Stroke body. I bought this in august from Dale Photo Digital, a retailer in the states for about $800. It's been kept in pretty much the same condition as I got it, even with all the imperfections.
This definitely a user camera. It works fine, exposures are correct on all speeds, viewfinder and rangefinder is bright and clear. Everything works smoothly. It's a little old, so the light seals may be getting a little worn. I've had light leaks happen when I leave the camera for long periods of time with no cap on the lens. But as long as you keep a cap on when you're not shooting, it should be fine.
There are a few scuffs on the body, the most significant ones being on the top plate, where it seems like the previous owner mounted a meter, and one on the right side of the back of the camera, near the strap lug, where there seems to be a bit of wear from a strap ring/strap.
There's also a dent on the bottom plate.
All the imperfections have been documented in the photos.
I'm looking for about $500. If you think the price is unfair, don't be afraid to bargain, just... be respectful please!
I'm more than willing to consider trades for M-Mount lenses!
I'm located in Toronto until Jan 2, but I'll be extremely busy. I'm moving to Cambridge, Ontario (Canada) on the 2nd for school.
