    Leica M3 DS with Summarit-M 5cm F1.5- great users.

    I have Two M3’s and Two Summarits. Time to offer one for sale.

    For Sale:

    Leica M3 Double Stroke with 5cm F1.5 Summarit-M lens, series VI filter adapter, series VI filters, Series VI hood, and fitted case. The camera and lens were professionally Cleaned, Lubed, and Adjusted (CLA) by Essex camera about 8 years ago. The lens has some marks on the front element, nothing that will have any real effect on the image. I have used this lens on my M3, M8, and M9. The filter ring was damaged when I got it, and Essex straightened it out. It will take the “hard to find” 41mm filters without problem. I use the included (and RARE) Tiffen #611 Series VI adapter, made it much more convenient to find filters and hood. The camera is in ~8/10 condition, brassing on the top plate common with using Leica MC meters. The Vulcanite is in decent condition, one piece repaired by Essex near the DOF preview lever.

    I have used this camera with good results, the viewfinder is in excellent condition, and shutter has been accurate on all speeds.

    $1080 shipped within the US via insured Priority mail with signature confirmation; $1130 via insured Priority mail world-wide with signature confirmation. Paypal is fine, as is personal check or money order. $30 discount for check/MO, or “Paypal Gift”. I reserve the right to hold shipment until after a check clears. 14 day return policy, shipping is NOT refundable. Internationally, item must be declared for the insured amount.

    I have too much equipment. It's bad enough to have a lot of lenses for the Leica, then I HACK non-Leica lenses into Leica Mount! It's an illness. I have thirty 50mm lenses in Leica mount alone.

    Like this one.



    Too many lenses!

    Bump!

    I will sell the Summarit-M with the filter adapter, hood, and filters as shown, +generic rear cap for $470 Shipped within the US via Priority Mail and $490 Shipped via International Priority.

    Body sold to Doug, "long story"... I ended up keeping the DS and selling the other one. This one was made the same month that I was.

    Summarit is Still available.
