Each thread needs some crappy images as well. I'm happy to supply one. Taken with fogged Canon 50 1.8 LTM.
Printed on old Kodak Pro RC IV 8x10 paper, in Dektol. M3 is ELC.

I've had maybe 15 or more M bodies pass through my hands. I still have 3, a black paint M4, an M6 Ti, and my M3. Out of all of these the M3 is the one that I reach for first and I don't even own a 50mm lens :-)

Not at the moment. The only 50 that interests me is the built-in hood Noctilux and I can't afford that one yet :-)

My M6 needed (still does) rangefinder calibration, so I bought M3 to have a M body in the meantime. Might not even get the M6 fixed and sell it as it is...

Great thread, and really stunning photos from those contributing here.

I have been shooting my M3 since I bought it in 2011 in Sapporo. In 2013 I had to have some light baffles replaced and at the same time had the speeds adjusted. Other than that it has been great! I shoot it with my M-ROKKOR 90mm and my 5cm Elmar f2.8, and I couldn't ask for a better camera to shoot these two lenses.

A few recent shots with the Elmar:

Some really nice and inspiring photography here!

And such diverse results, proves that a 1950s film camera with only 3 frame lines in its rangefinder ain't so limited...

I bought my Leica M3 here on RFF. One of the reasons I bought it was so that I could use my Leica 21mm 3.4 Super Angulon lens, as you can't use that lens on the M6. But I found I really like using my M3 and actually will grab it instead of my M6. Most of the time I use my M3 with my Nikkor SC 50mm 1.4 in LTM but this image was taken with a much wider lens. I took it at the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm in Oregon and used the M3 and the 21mm 3.4 Super Angulon. Velvia 50 film.

I bought M3 in 2011, in tempting of using it with 50mm lens.
However, I found out that I haven't used it as much as I expected, but the M2 because I shoot 35mm over 90% of time.
Then I sold it early this year.
Still, It's a great camera, especially for 50mm focal length lens.
