The Leica M3 body (SN 996279, single stroke) has recently been serviced by Leica (for a cost of about Swiss Francs 600.) so it is in perfect working order, with precise timings, a clear viewfinder, working timer, etc. After the service I only tried it briefly to check it all, but never shot a roll with it. You can see the details of the work done by Leica in the 6th picture (text in German). As you can see by the pictures, the body presents some scratches and some sign of use, but mechanically is perfect. The Summicron M 50mm f2.0 collapsible (SN 1254722) is in good working order, without oil on the blades or fogging. Focus is smooth as is the collapsing mechanism. Some light cleaning signs on the front element, and some even smaller on the back one. Comes with metal front cap. The Elmarit M 90mm f2.8 (SN 2087292) is is very good shape, smooth focus, no oil on blades, no haze. It has been cleaned and adjusted a couple of years ago (not by Leica but by a good local service). Comes with metal front and back caps. In my opinion it is a very good set to be used or displayed (all is period correct and beautiful in my humble opinion). And a recently cleaned M3 viewfinder is really a joy to use! Too bad I simply don’t use it anymore since I don’t shoot film anymore.
