  1. I've not been able to find a separate code # for the lens filter holder/case I presume the coupling ring is the grey 14838 but I've never seen one of these bags for sale with a coupler included
  2. I've not been able to find a pic/diagram of this case (14820) appropriately filled with camera gear (some other models of Leica cases show this) From the description below (original brochure - gives details of what fits into case) I presume the camera body (plus lens up to 50mm & Leicameter) fit into the right quadrant? Is the slit like space close to the centre for the lens filter (x3) case (see pic) & the small square receptacle at the left front corner for the 50 cron goggles? What is the space/rectangular area to the rear LHS for - it seems very specific. Does t
  3. My 1951 iiif bd sporting a W-Nikkor 2.8cm f3.5 with a contemporary Nikon 28mm viewfinder
  4. Ditto - have an Abrahamsson Rapidwinder for my MP - better built than the Leicavit but still a novelty IMHO http://rapidwinder.com/classic-and-m2-ixmoo-rapdiwinder
  5. I have a rigid LTM 50mm cron & use it on my IIIa, IIIf & IIIg - not sure how the profile/diameter of this lens differs from the collapsible version but there is very little (IIIf) & virtually no (IIIg) blockage without a hood but once a hood is applied (ITDOO) the problem becomes much more of an issue but still usable. Still I prefer to use a 50mm external viewfinder (SBOOI).
  6. Glad you were able to follow my directions By the way, what lenses/cameras are you using the kipon adapter with?
  7. I thought it may have been IMARO - but is there a code for an added light meter? IMARO = IGEMO + ELMAR-M (Elmar (III) f= 5 cm 1:3.5)
  8. Cervi see my pics below - there is a ring (adjustment) inside the helicoid with two notches, 180 degrees apart - this ring was way too far down inside the helicoid - I had to screw it anticlockwise (so it would rise to just above the level of the top of the helicoid - see pics) - a fine screwdriver placed into one of the notches will allow you to move the ring. With fine adjustment it's trial & error, screwing ring clockwise or anticlockwise in very small movements then testing for attainment of infinity with the rangefinder. Ideally using a digital camera with an EVF (Electronic view
  9. Yes, I also have one of those Nikon diopters from DAG - forgot to mention that in my initial post
  10. Has anyone tried to remove the glass from a standard M diopter (dioptre) ie M3-MA style - is it possible to dismantle I've had three: two +2s & one +1.0. Unfortunately I lost one of my +2s - gradually unscrewed & fell off (I've learnt my lesson). I consider these to be one of Leicas biggest ripoffs - exhorbitantly priced for what they are I'm just wondering if it's possible to remove the glass & have an optician insert a new one (though I fear that that the cost of a bespoke diopter would surpass that of an original one) Unless anyone here wants to swap a +2 for
  11. some people love the Hammertone finish (i'm definitely not partial to it too) - as a positive it hides scratches & dents
