My most used Leica is a 1949/50 IIIc sharkskin.  I use it mostly with the 
50mm Elmar or Summar, or the 50mm f/1.4 Nikkor C.  I like its size and 
weight.  With Elmar and bright frame finder it weighs in at around 20 
oz.  I hardly feel it on my shoulder strap.  I also use the Imarect a lot, 
and would use it all the time except for the weight.  I also have an M2, M3 
and M6 but use them less than the IIIc.  My IIIc functions like the day it 
was made.
