“The leica IIIg is a camera that is nearly 50 years...”

Written on: 08/03/2004 by oniko (35 reviews written)

The leica IIIg is a camera that is nearly 50 years old, but still has speeds from b,1 - 1/1000 sec.
the rangefinder system of the two mirrors focus is very quick and can be used in very low light where auto and manual focus cameras can be hard to use.

it is a camera that is totally manual, that makes you think about the photo. rather than putting it on P and away you go.there is a slight snob value as the cameras are getting harder to find now.

Dhbebb's Response to oniko's Review

Written on: 13/11/2008

Just 2 points - screw-mount Leicas are generally around 40% or so cheaper than M-series cameras - the IIIg has always been the most expensive screw-mount body but now (2008) sells for approx. 50% of what it did 10 years ago.
<br/>Second point - lenses with a 39 mm mount made for the Russian Zenith 3M or the very early Asahiflex are no good for use with a screw-thread Leica, since the register is wrong (Leica body is much thinner). You would have to use an extension tube and focusing would be very uncertain.
