I used to use the Leica II or III with several lenses but gave up on them
because I failed to get used to use two widely separated rangefinder and
viewfinder.  It was frustrating to see the scene gone whenever I switched
back and forth between the two tiny windows.

If this is not limited to Leica LTM, I use the Canon 7 or IV Deluxe with
some Leica LTM lenses, Canon LTM lenses and Nikon LTM lenses.  My favorite
LTM lenses are the Canon 100/3.5 black or black/chrome version, the Nikon
85/2 and 105/2.5.  The Canon 100/2 is excellent but a tad bulky.  Of
course, I do use these LTM lenses on my Leica M3 too with pleasure.

Hi Greg, I have and use a IIIf, which performs beautifully and looks sexy, 
but I am having increasing trouble focussing (aging eyes). It continues to 
surprise me. I use it with an unnumbered nickel (I think) 3.5 Elmar. The 
lens is sharp sharp sharp.
