    Last weekend I was eager to test my freshly arrived Leica IIIc. So I took it with me to the annual Oldtimer Car Meet in a nearby park.
    When I received the camera it had some issues with the slow speed escapement, but that was resolved after I took the shutter out of the shell and clean what I could. A small drop of lighter fluid seem to have cleared it right up
    The only remaining issue appears to a bit of curtain drag; a slight uneven exposure across the frame.

    Nothing particularly drastic.

    Camera: Leica IIIc "K" (1945)
    Lens: Leitz 50mm f/2 Summitar (uncoated, unhooded)
    Film: fomapan 100 (developed in Ro9, 1+25, for 6.5 minutes at 20C)

    I bought this one as an alternative user camera to my 1942 IIIc.

    The near-twin to this one I have is in much too nice a condition to take with me on field trips ;)
