I'm with Marc on this -- the best vintage Leica is a Zeiss Contax II or
IIa.  If you already have a freshly CLA'd IIIf, stick with that.   I've
found the IIIg viewfinder particularly uncongenial to those who wear
glasses, so either switch to contact lenses or stick to your IIIf with an
accessory finder.  You might also consider a Tower 45 (Nicca) which is a
IIIf copy, except it has the back of a Leica M3 for easy loading, and a
lever advance for easy winding.  This is the camera Leica should have
designed instead of the IIIg.
