Exceedingly rare, this is an ELC camera (made by Ernest Leitz Canada, in Midland Ontario), and is one of tiny batch of 200 cameras made in this run and only a scant few thousand made in total by ELC (you can look up the serial number online to confirm this info). This is a USER camera, not a collector piece – if you are looking for that mint M3 – this is NOT it. This camera is used, tested and working as it should. All functions are tested and work as they should. Shutter is in good working condition and fires nicely on all speeds with both curtains in good condition. Cosmetically, this camera shows normal signs of use with some scrapes, dings, nicks brassing etc. Original skin is generally intact, though some corners are chipped on front and back, easily replaced by new owner or ask us about getting and installing a new skin for this camera (choose your color/finish style). Finder is clean and clear, thought when lookin in from the front of the camera, some marks are visible inside. Patch is sharp, bright and with good contrast. Rangefinder is fully aligned and is spot on. Leitz Elmar 50mm F2.8. Lens glass is clean with no fungus, haze or scratches. Focus and aperture move smoothly (though some oil is present on blades).
