Just bought a 1958 Konica III from a retired photographer. It is in working condition. Wonder if any members here have similar experience with this camera.

Just shot a roll of Tmax. This camera seems to have a very good lens. Attached a sample picture taken with this camera.

The Konica III is a very nice camera. Extremely well-built with a sharp coated lens. The trigger advance/shutter cocking mechanism works well.

I think the only downside to the camera is its weight. It's a bit heavy, and you can really feel it after hauling it around for an afternoon.

I agree with you zeiss. But after hauling my Mamiya C330 with 3 lens, this camera seems very light by comparison. It is a great camera for street shots. The leaf shutter is very silent. The only downside is that the lens is not interchangeable and it is very difficult to find filters to fit. Am still looking for a lens hood.
