I Love my Leica IIIc, it's my pride and joy. I love the solid metal feel, the weight in the hands. I love the milled machined metal knobs, it's so tactile. No plastic, no electronics, no controlling processors, no meter. Family heirloom. Miniature photography in one of its most pure and unadulterated forms. It was made in early 1946 together with its 5cm f2 Summitar and SBOOI 5cm finder.
