Some photos from my first successful IIIC roll

Some of you may have seen that I recently got back my IIIC after a CLA (with some silly worries about dust in the finder), but other than that the camera is now working beautifully and I wanted to share a few photos. It was mostly a test roll to make sure everything was in working order.

The first photo looks like it has some light bands in some spots on the left, but I'm unsure if that's a light leak or not, because the lab that processed my photos called to tell me one of my rolls was ruined due to a light leak in their tank or something like that, so maybe that crossed over into this photo? I'm not sure. I'm not too worried as the camera was just repaired.

Nice series!
I am interested to try using a Leica LTM camera as well.
On the lookout for a good deal.

BTW, Helen, you got yourself a Elmar-M 50 f2.8? What a coincidence, I just acquired a Elmar 50 f2.8 but it is the version 1.

Thank you so much for the kind words everyone! Here a couple more from the roll. I apologize in advance for the cat photo. He's my most photographed subject when I'm at home and feel like taking photos.

By the way, the lens used is an Elmar 5cm/3.5. Very happy with the quality of this lens.

Those two photos ^^^^ are the best yet, IMO. The Elmar is such a sweet little lens and doesn't it make a nice shooting set-up on the IIIc?

Very good. A little burning of the scan can get rid of that light area. I never knew what the big deal was with Leica Barnacks until I finally started shooting a Zorki. Though it's not quite the same experience, it gave me enough of an idea what to expect. Still plan on getting a III series someday.
