1950 Leica IIIf with Summitar 50mm f/2

When I first fell in love with photography in the early 90's it was while shooting on film and developing in a darkroom. I haven't shot on film since 1998 so I was pretty excited to find this gorgeous 1950 Leica IIIf on craigslist a few weeks ago. I popped my first roll of Ilford 400 B&W this morning and downloaded a light meter for my phone. Looking forward to seeing my first 36 exposures... and hopefully they aren't a bunch of under and over-exposed disasters. I'll be posting some of the images here in the next few weeks assuming they aren't. On a side note I find it pretty funny how after every shot I've taken so far on this camera I chimp the back only to be staring at black leather.
