    3 of a kind Leicas

    Bought 3 of the same model for different reasons in order to make the best camera and get an extra lens at a good price.

    One with the lens was purchased as separate pieces (good price for camera and lens)

    Second was bought for the lens

    Third was bought as I thought the seller didn't know how to operate the meter (sold as non working meter) and it doesn't work, but camera is in very nice condition and works (except the meter).

    Keeping the one with the lens and selling the other two when I feel it's time.

    Have some film in it, but not tested yet as It's winter and everything still a little bland to shoot.

    Nice camera and very popular

    Love Leicas, if i hadn't put so much money into Nikon gear i'd have loved to have gone the Leica route, and hassies for the Studio.

    I love my M3. I just need to find someone who can service it.

    You could try Sherry Krauter of Golden Touch who repairs Leicas in NJ or DAG Camera repair. Sherry is a factory trained repair person in Leicas. DAG did a repair on the camera with the lens and adjusted the meter for modern batteries

    Hope that helps

    I think the CL should be the basis for either an X2 or Digilux 4. Great camera, well, 3 great cameras :)
