Leica IIIf Red Dial withSelf-Timer RDST EX+++ NoReserve
We’re not really a pawn shop and we don’t live on Elizabeth Avenue anymore. But we do have a lot of cameras and camera related items and we know our stuff. Hello, and thanks for looking. Here we have a Leica IIIf body with red dial and self timer. Includes original body cap as shown. This is a camera that was obviously not used or handled much. It’s a beauty. Viewfinder is clean, clear and bright. Rangefinder has nice contrast and clarity and perfect alignment. As is the case with most items that are seldom used over the course of decades (six decades in this instance) it isn’t working perfectly. The slow speeds are a bit slow (may improve with exercise) with one second dragging on for almost two seconds (but not sticking completely). Fast speeds seem to work fine. Advance could be a bit smoother. It works fine but it’s not as smooth as it would be after a CLA. I’m not saying a CLA is required. I think if you stick with speeds from 1/15 up you’ll be ok. But if you want a silky smooth advance and clockwork slow speeds it would need a service. You can always get a camera serviced. What you can’t do (without incredible time and expense) is make an ugly, beat up camera pretty again. And with this one you don’t have to because it is a beauty. Would like to point out that in the pictures one half of the screw holding the self-timer appears to be discolored. Please be assured it is not. Both halves are shiny chrome.
