This legendary Leica R3 that has been film-tested, see attached images. It is solid metal. Works flawlessly. I have shot 3x36exp rolls with it, no issues. The attached image of the texture of the ornament, the dynamic range of the water fountain are the hallmarks of the much-acclaimed 50mm f2.0 Summicron Leitz (Canada) lens on this camera. I have installed fresh batteries in it, it has the original strap. You will need to acquire a case and I recommend getting a Leica 55mm filter or a B+W 55mm filter. Yellow or Yellow/Green if you plan on shooting mainly black & white. The body has very little wear and tear. The lens shows its age - cosmetically - but, the glass is intact, free of defects. I had always wondered what the hype about Leica was and it was when I bought and enjoyed this camera that I understood the marvel of German design and engineering. If you are in the Lower Rio Grande Valley area, I will warranty this camera for 30 days against any kind of defects with service to be provided in McAllen. FREE SHIPPING, fully insured, via ground.
