Subject: [Leica] Help: 1/5th sec on IIIf red dial
From: "Guido Soprano" <>
Date: Fri, 30 Jul 1999 16:12:28 EDT

Desparately seeking Advice.

All shutter speeds are bang on on my 111f RD, as evidenced by many correctly 
exposed images using all speeds, 1 sec thru' to 1/1000 (and the sound, and a 
comparison to other bodies)...

Except 1/5 second, which sounds like 1/25. If I move the slow speed dial to 
just before the 1/5 indent, I get what sounds like 1/5th.

What is up, must I live with it or part with my dearly loved and daily used 
treasure into the hands of a specialist? Can I safely give it to a local, 
respected repair house?
