Leica III Compared to FED 1g Questions

Hey everyone, I have a FED 1g that was overhauled complete with new shutter curtains, etc. The camera, to me operates nicely, the advance is smooth, the shutter works crisply and sounds great. In all, I'm very happy with it.
My GAS has me thinking about a Leica III body and using a couple of my FSU lenses with it.
Questions are :
1- Is the Leica (presuming it is good operating condition) noticeably smoother mechanically and in functionality than a FED 1 or Zorki ?
2- Are there any concerns regarding FSU lenses on a Leica III body?
3- Any other comments?

Thanks, Glen
