Hi Greg,

I am a user -- ;-)  I have drawers and cabinets full of the things, Leica's, 
Canon's, Zorki's, FED's & Kiev's, and lenses to go with all of them, (15, 
28. 35, 50, 85, 90, 100, & 135, even 200 with an adapter).  My favorite is 
whichever one I'm holding at the time.  They all will take pics that match 
my own 
limits as a photographer.

One in particular that I like is a beat-up Leica IIIc that had such a dim 
rangefinder when I got it that it was unusable except for scale focusing.  I 
it to a fellow in the Ukraine and he fixed it using Zorki parts and it now 
has the brightest RF of the bunch.  Cost of the repair was $25 and the 
cost was the same, $25.

Long live the LTM's, and best regards, ------ Paul Connet

And which camera or cameras, lens or lenses do you like to use?

I use my IIIG with modern formula 50 Summicron primarily for street
