I have often been asked: Which is the best camera?
Well, without any hesitation: Leica M3

A 60 year old camera or there about and it still works perfectly without worrying about leaky batteries and dusty shutters like some of the modern DSLRs?
The whole camera feels so solid no wonder journalists prefer it to any other made.
And the lens: nothing came close. It was German precision at its best.
On eBay expect to pay around $1000 for a reasonable one.
