    FS: Leica M3 DS, 35mm Summaron 3.5 SM and extras

    M3 Double Stroke:

    The M3 Double stroke has had only one roll through it (i bought this m3 as a backup in a GAS-attack) and looks to be working a treat:
    The original ad described it as this:
    Excellent cosmetic condition and fully functional
    Rangefinder and the viewfinder aligned perfectly clear.
    Slight signs of use on top of the exposure dial due to use and similar on the base.
    There is only one blemish worth noticing and that's in the frame lines window and it's purely cosmetic - no effect on the frame lines at all and I confirmed this with the original seller. Overall a very nice condition body ready to be used! I've only had it a couple weeks and after the first roll it sat in my draw - turns out I don't like to carry a second camera with me!

    $980AUD Shipped insured to any location as listed below. It's gotta go!


    35mm Summaron 3.5 SM:

    The Summaron is a nice performer and works best at middle apertures (5.6-11) but really shines with people, I am astounded how it renders eyes. I am even willing to post a slightly embarrassing shot of myself to show this. It has the slightest haze around the outside but I have not noticed this at all and usually the corners are quite soft wide open anyway. I am told it's easily cleanable, but you run the risk of scratching the body in order to dismantle it to clean it. Better kept as it is as it works really well! (send me an email - don't worry it's not a self-nude or anything weird!) it comes with the LTM-M adapter to bring up 50mm frame lines. (For lenses 21-50mm)

    $400AUD Shipped insured to any location as listed below.


    Lightmeters:

    I have an old sekonic light meter (L-8) in it's leather pouch that appears to be working, as well as a Leicameter MC which also seems to work ok - tested against iPhone lightmeter app.

    $80AUDea or $160 for the pair, Shipped insured to any location as listed below.


    two m42 lenses :
    are a Carl Zeiss Jena 50mm 2.8 Tessar which needs some work - the focus feels a little tight and the aperture works in a way i feel a bit unfamiliar with.
    and
    a Pentacon auto 50/18 "Multi coating".
    I have absolutely no use for these, and would rather they went to some use outside taking up my drawer space. I have some pics but have no idea about the usability. The focus rings are pretty stiff on both and the aperture of the first lens seems to require you to push the aperture ring towards the camera before turning to adjust the aperture. The aperture does not click on the second lens. The Pentacon F camera has an internal mechanism for releasing the aperture diaphragm.

    Make any offer and i'll work out the postage for them and we can sort out a deal.


    I'll ship US, Europe and UK, Japan and of course Australia and New Zealand and am estimating $65 for insured airmail with delivery confirmation for the m3 (heaviest and highest insurance).

    These items have to go! Payment by Paypal only. "goods" option preferred, I pay the fees.
    email me at kostadelmar.is(a_t)gmail dot com and make me an offer. Shipping insurance covers loss only - if you want insurance to cover breakage I will have to get a quote for that one from another carrier. I do my best to pack things thoroughly and very safely.
