I started with IIf and IIc, inherited my father's IIIf when he passed away. I sold the IIIf pretty quickly (it was too much of a 'sacred object' for me to keep and use, no one else wanted it). While I keep the IIs until they were lost, an M3 and M2 I'd acquired in the late '70s were much more useful and pleasant to use.

I'd like a 1930s generation Leica II (in black with an Elmar) just for the nostalgia, because I think it's pretty, but when it comes to Leica M-mount cameras I think the M4-2 and CL are what I'm most comfortable with using.
