Tom Abrahamsson of RapidWinder.com It is almost never that an inventor improves on a Leica product so that it is better than the original Leica product. Tom holds that distinction with his RapidWinder for Leica M rangefinders -- a bottom mounting baseplate trigger advance. In addition Tom manufacturers other Leica accessories such as his very popular Soft Release and MiniSoftRelease shutter releases. Tom is well known as one of the true Leica rangefinder experts, even by Leica. IMPORTANT READ THIS: CWE Forum hosts have moderation powers within their forum.

M3 Bleed through other frames...

Greetings. I have a 1961 M3 with a 50mm Summilux f1.4v.2...

Why did this happen? Pic. (small), see link attached/below... The lens did have UV filter on it... Whas shooting somewhat into the sun obviously.

What could this be? Any thoughts?

It is exactly what you have described - strong light bleeding across the edges of the frame, and caused by shooting with the sun (or another very strong light source) near the edge of the frame. Just about all my 35mm cameras do that. Filter won't make any difference.

Notraces (Flickr) and Chris have it. The mechanics of frame separation is as good as it can be. The M3, I seem to remember reading, will often have thinner gaps between negatives than some other cameras, but yours don't look so thin at all.
