It shouldn't be a surprise at all.  Leica screw mounts were to cameras what
old Purdeys were to shotguns.  I used to be able to advance film on my IIC
by just pulling my finger across the wind knob.

I can't decide if I'm happy to be old enough to have enjoyed world class
quality or sad because it's no longer available.

[Snip] Funny enough, I think that the smoothest shutter release button I
have ever experienced is the one on my IIIf.
