The M3 suited my style really well. The finder image size was great. The bright line finder suited the lenses I had (could afford.)

Then I got the M4P without trying it out much. I had camera lust!

The finder was too small IIRC.

And I shoot left eyed. So I figured that I could get a power winder and solve that problem! (The film advance lever was a problem on whatever make/body I tried.)

Changing film was fine with the regular baseplate. I just found it cumbersome with the 4P. Solution would have been to buy a 28 and another body to run colour in one and b/w in the other. I didn't like the finder and I sold the system.

Should have just learned to shoot right eyed!


ps I would love an M3 today!
