I use a IIIf that is in lovely shape and has an accurate shutter and a bright rangefinder. I have a number of LTM lenses that I use on the IIIf and, with adapters, on my M2 and M6: 50mm collapsable Summicron, 50mm f1.4 Canon, 85mm f2 Nikkor, 85mm f1.9 Canon, 135mm f4.5 Hektor, and a 21mm f4 Color-Skopar. I have a Canon 85mm finder, Leitz 135mm finder, and the 21mm finder that came with the Skopar. I shoot T-Max 400 in it and use a Sekonic 318B meter some of the time. The rest of the time I estimate, which is surprisingly easy to do with 400 speed B&W film.
