    These kinda remind me of the posters in the hallway to the steps down into the Leica basement of Map camera. . . When did you get an M3 ? ? ?

    And is it slightly sad that I can tell it is an FE2 from the shots above? (yes)

    What a (camera) nerd

    It’s the best kind.

    Also, I just realized that it was an FE, not an FE2. (after noticing the tags at the end of the post0

    Hey John,

    Inherited the M3 from Jim, he inherited it from somebody else. It has a gorgeous summicron on it that wont focus. Not sure why. It actually comes apart, like you can unscrew the bottom elements from the top. Took it to Hayata and he said junk. Lens wont focus at all on M8. Paper weight for now. And yes, I sent my FE (not FE2) to America to an old photographer girlfriend who, when together, we had a house full of broken cameras, old folders, some brownies, and a pair of matching Polaroids that we got a thrift shop and rocked them everywhere. 12 years later ended up in Japan and she ended up with a photographer degree and a house full of broken cameras. I mailed and and said, why are you shooting, you we’re always the shooter? She said all her cameras died. So I sent her the FE (which she also eventually killed) but not before calling me and asking me how to work it, like what all the dials do, and what the little numbers meant (I hope she never reads this). God bless her, cuz she’s a good photographer, but how can they give out photography degrees and not teach them what all the little numbers mean…?

    So…I have a Summicron 50mm (’50s, chrome, non-collapsible) that is missing the first few elements from it…but it the focus mechanism still works…if I send it to you, perhaps Hayata-san can take parts from the one you have and make it into a workable lens. Let me know…happy to send it to you :)
