Got my Retina IIIS back from restauration and can't wait to get the first film developed.
Chris Sherlock did a perfect work on this beauty!
Thanks Chris if you read this ;-)

I think I could like a IIIS. No more messing with that door in the way, and an honest lens barrel to grip. I think the IIIC was the best folder 35mm ever built, and the IIIS just improves on that.

I think the Voigtländer Vitessa was the best 35mm folder ever, but I do like My IIc ;)
The IIIS looks superb, bigger, better viewfinder, and very good lenses too.

And Chris Sherlock is THE man for Retinas. Mine came back like new. Is the meter accurate? I was surprised that the one on my Vitessa is 100% accurate, compared to a Sekonic.

It looks like that the meter is pretty acurate - but more to say when I get back my first film this afternoon.

While getting the film developed, I found another IIIS and bougt it :D
Optical nice, meter working, metercord ain't broken with a 2,8 50mm but the shutter isn´t working nicely - all is sticky and stiff but for 16,-€ I couldn't resist.
I think Chris will get a new job next year ;)

PS:
The film turned out well and I´m scanning it @ the moment.

Nice looking camera and photos. Never had one myself. I was introduced to Weltas after my father died, and have liked them much ever since. I think there are similarities except for light meters in your model. Hope you get the photos you want with it and your 'new' one.

Is it a leaf shutter in the lens? Sorry, I don't know much about Retinas.

Leaf shutter behind the lens - so you get a full interchangable lens - not like the IIIc/C or the Zeiss Ikon Contaflex just a frontelement.

Beautiful camera. I have a Retina 1a and a 2a. The F2 Xenon lens on the 2a is especially sharp...........sometimes I think it surpasses the 50mm cron on my M3. The 1a is a viewfinder only but it is fun to go out with the grandkids on a "sunny 16" day, set hyperfocal F16 and take wonderful images. Congratulations on your new Retina. You will find it to be a lifetime keeper!

For sure I will keep it as long as possible!
I started fotografie with my fathers VF Zeiss Ikon contina IIa - ( now I have a few of these ;-) )
Have SLR Systems (Voigtländer Bessamatic - Zeiss Ikon Contaflex - Canon FD - Nikon AF - Yashica FX-3
RF Voigtländer Vito CSR and Vitoret LR
But allways wantes a rangefinder with interchangeable lenses like a Leica.
With collecting the Bessamatic stuff I came across the Kodak Retina reflex and found out that you can use the Schneider-Kreuznach and Rodenstock lenses with the Bessamatic just with a minor change.

http://rick_oleson.tripod.com/index-150.html

Next step was that with this knowlegde I crossed the Retina IIIs!
The fullfill of my dreams! A RF with interchangeable lenses - leafshutter - German made ;) and lenses that can be used on my voigtländer Bessamatic!

I couldn't use the Voigtländer lenses on the IIIs -they don't have the rangefinder coupling, but on a Retina Reflex you could do it this way too.

So this little beauty suits my collection well and will be used as often as possible.
I still hope to find the 4,0 85mm - 4,0 28mm and the 1,9 50mm to get the range complete.

Will be interessting how the Retina performances with color film - the Fuji Superia 200 is nearly finished - next test will be a Kodak EliteChrome 100 to test the meter - which is extemly accuarate compared to my Nikon F90!

Okay, you've convinced me. I'll trade in my IIIC for a IIIS, though it may be a while. Too many things going on right now to make the change

All Fuji Superia 200 - the slight vignettiation of the 2,8 35mm curtagon is nice!

I bought another one with the same issues like you said and even the 2,8 50mm for 16,-€ and will send it to Chris in summer together with 2 of my Bessamatic.

This little beauty is the cam I´m searching for.
Light - easy to handle - good lenses - so sad that it was the last of the line.
Just imagine there would be a new Retina Xs to buy - maybe with TTL metering and a faster shutter - and a digital body too!
Oh God I don´t wanna think about it where Leica than would be!!!!

Thanks a lot!

I would move a bit more to the right - next house then you wouldn't get the Street lamp into your view like I have :D

These are just test how this cam behaves - 2nd roll of film und first colour.
The low light shots where @ 1/15 2,8 just to see if you can do it handhold.
Normaly I´m a Kodak guy but I had a roll of Fuji Superia 200 around and gave him a try.
nice Film for low light but a daylight the colours are not mine!

Took the cam with me in my truck to the "Ötztal" a very nice valley in Tyrol. It seems that the Retina and EliteChrome are a perfect combination - so sad that this film is history now!

yes it´s close to it!

Some of these pics have been done in "Obergurgl" which is very close to the "Similaun" glacier.
I´m in the lucky Situation that I life in a place like this and could travel it every day with my truck.

Someone snagged a IIIs with f/2.8 off eBay last night for $45. He just beat me to it..

Hi Colyn,

That would be me. It arrived in the mail yesterday. The bad news is
that it does not work which was probably because of the good news.
It arrived in absolutely mint condition. No dings, scratches, or dents
anywhere. Inside there was only one little film chip and no dust. The
pressure plate was very clean. It was used hardly at all and probably
sat in a closet for the last 50 or more years allowing all the lubricants
to harden up.

It is now sitting on my bench in pieces ready to be cleaned. Hope to
have it back in operation soon.

Sounds like you still got a good deal.

Wait till you re-string the meter.. It'll have you cussing like a sailor before it is over..

Oh man am I jealous. My IIc is boxed up and read to be sent off to see Mr. Sherlock, but I'd LOVE to have a complete IIIS kit. I'd be afraid to buy one off ebay though.

My advise in buying a IIIs - get the ceapest you can find and send her to chris too!
I would play the game with trying to find a good one for a higher price.
I´ve another IIIs here which I bought for 20,-€ from a local dealer - she will see New-Zealand soon :D

Thanks for the correction. :)

That afternoon was a good one for pictures. This chap turned into Leopoldstrasse just as we were walking out to Egger-Lienz Strasse. He posed very nicely with his rare Austin Healey 100...

I've always been interested in this camera, though not committed to the whole setup. Is that the 135mm?

Talking about the last two pictures? - That´s the S-K 1.9 50mm Xenon

How does the S-K 1.9 50mm Xenon perform wide open?

Best,

You see it in the pics above - just framed untouched scans.

Try to shoot it with my Canon EOS5D in the next days to show the performance on a digital cam.

So the two Innsbruck pictures were shot wide open at f1.9? Impressive performance.

Thanks,

I was curious about the 135 - how does it perform at f4?
