Elmar 50/3.5 - Showing its stuff

Believe it or not, but in addition to taking photos OF my cameras - I also do use them :)
I've been putting 3-4 rolls of film through my Leica III (F) and am just now getting around to scanning some of the results. The Leica III has in very short time become my favorite carry-with-me camera and it's rare that I head out without the camera either slung over my shoulder (love that Luigi case) or tucked into my camera bag.

Granted I am most likely somewhat biased considering how much I like this camera but I must say I was very pleasantly surprised with how well the 50/3.5 lens performed (not bad for a 70+ year old, uncoated lens).

Below are a couple of photos from the first roll where I tried to snap photos indoors, outdoors, portraits, cityscapes, etc - on various shutterspeed and aperture settings to get a feel for how the camera and lens would peform.
More photos to come.

The lens definitely gives these images a vintage "look". Your pictures are very nice.

Nice pics. I'm surprised how well the old lens performs.

Really nice shots Rich. It's clear you're having great fun and getting some great results from the heptagenary Leica.
