My serviced and bought from top London dealer Leica III is sitting on the shelf with shutter advance fubar and problems with shutter speeds above 100.

My Zorki 4 just keeps working.

I paid 55 for it with a good Jupiter 8 lens. I will have to pay c150 and wait 6 months to get my Leica III CLA'd by a reputable firm.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoy playing around with fine bits of German camera engineering, but I think much of that is derived from the history rather than the camera per se.
De-gassing progress:

Leica M2, Nikon D700, Bronica RF645, Leica CL, Summicron 40mm, Rolleicord Va, Hasselblad 500 CM Zeiss Planar, Leica 50mm Summicron V3, Hasselblad PME51 metered prism, Zeiss Ikon Super Ikonta 534/16 & Ensign 820 Special - all gone.
