The R3 is one of my favourite cameras ever. Not because of the brand, simply because I love the design! Maybe it´s a nostalgic feeling too, because the R3 was one of the first cameras I ever saw with photographer´s eyes. Some weeks ago I could trade a R3 body with winder and grip for next to nothing. The grip is not very pleasing for me, but the rest is great! I still can´t afford a Leica lens, but I have two adaptall zooms and got me a Leica adapter.
The lens is mounted on a FS-1. This combination is one of my favourites. I own three FS-1 and three 40mm Hexanons, but one camera got completely mad and advances the film irregularly. The second one has some exposure issues (seldom), only the third is flawless and cosmetically the best. I bought the first two via the bay for more money than the last, which I found at a photo fair.
