  1. I have a 1936 IIIa (s.n. 184223) that is in need of a lens, and I am now in a position to purchase one. I am leaning towards an f3.5 Elmar, as I think it complements the design of the camera beautifully both in compactness and in general appearance. The other lenses that are possibilities look a bit heavier and some even a bit too modern (even though some of them are not) for an 85 year old camera. I do have some points that I would appreciate comments on from those who know more about things Leica than I do, before I part with my cash. Firstly, condition. Quite a few lenses of this age have either dust or haze in the optics, and others have light marks. Would I be correct in assuming that dust or haze (provided the haze is not excessive) could be fixed with a CLA, as could a stiff aperture ring or focusing ring, but marks would generally not go away? Secondly, coatings. I see that, as a rule, Pre-War lenses are clear, and Post-War lenses are coated, and I understand the basic reasoning behind coating lenses is to cut down internal reflections but, in lenses of this quality, is there really much of a difference between the two? As for the lenses that I’m looking at: Elmar f3.5: My preferred option, as it is so light and compact and just looks so right on a Barnack Leica; Elmar f2.8: Aside from the extra f-stop, is there any reason for preferring this over the f3.5 Elmar? I find it does not have quite the same visual appeal as the f3.5 Elmar, but it could be useful in low light situations. Summar f2: Maybe another lens to consider. Again, not quite the same visual appeal as the f3.5 Elmar, but it could also be useful in low light situations. Summitar: From what I can see, it appears to be an updated and improved version of the Summar. Compared with the Elmar, and even the Summar, it looks a trifle bulky (yes, I know it isn’t really). Summicron: I’m not so keen on this one, as I find the appearance of the earlier lenses more appealing. I would also prefer to fit my camera with a lens that’s a bit closer to what it originally had. I have heard that the front element is made of an unusually soft glass, which means that these lenses are often badly scratched. Is this so? Thank you in advance for helping a newcomer to the world of Leicas.

  9. Here's a post of some pics I recently took with my Leica I Model C and Summar 5cm f2. Lots of Leica posts on my blog, just search "Leica." But, since this is my oldest Leica (ca. 1931), I thought it may be of interest.

  10. I took my new m8 with an old summar to the local skatepark. Spent some time with friends and walked away with some nice portraits
  11. Hallo zusammen! Ich habe ein schönes Summar Baujahr 1935 erstanden, welches diese "Nase" für die Aufsätze des Agfacolorverfahrens besitzt, welches 1936 bereits Geschichte war. Nun möchte ich nach dem passenden Originalcarton suchen. Hierfür benötige ich diesen fünfstelligen Buchstabencode, welcher von Leitz verwendet wird/wurde. Könnte mir jemand diesen nennen? Wäre unheilmich nett. Viele Grüße aus Freiburg Jan
  12. Bei meinem Summmar f=5cm 1 :2 von 1936 benutze ich bis dato einen recht klobigen UVa - Filter namens " FIOLA "., nicht zuletzt, weil das Glas dieses Objektivs empfindlich sein soll und es wohl auch ist. " Fiola " wird übergestülpt und mittels einer Schraube fixiert. Das Summar hat aber auch ein Filtergewinde. War diese nur für besondere Filteroder ggf. Geli bestimmt, oder gibt / gab es auch UV/ gelb oder sonstige gebräuchliche Filter zum Einschrauben? Das Filtergewinde hat ein Maß von 34mm Und gleich noch einen Frage: meine III b hat sich von der 1/1000 sek. verabschiedet. Hat jemand die Adresse des Reparaturbetriebs in Hannover?
  13. I have been looking at posts on the forum almost every day since I joined it a few weeks ago and now seem to have run out of new posts to read in the collectors area. So I will start this one. I am trying not to be a collector but just a “user” and in the past ten years since I got back into Leicas I have bought a range of other lenses (and sold some). My local dealer is an expert on Leicas and has something new to look at almost every week. This is a picture of a CL that I bought in an auction lot, which cost me nothing as I got my money back by selling the other items that came with it. But it works a bit like a Leica Standard, the rangefinder has lost its slivering an is not really usable, and the meter only works when it feels like it, but the shutter is good. The Summar is a nickel version and a bit rough inside, but works ok with Rollei Infrared film for extra contrast. The 35mm f2.8 Schneider Xenogon is a nice lens, a bit like a screw Summaron but a 2.8 lens. The black & nickel Contax Tessar is on a Cook & Perkins Contax/Leica screw adaptor, not an expensive focusing one but lens lens is held at infinity focus which is ok for general use, it then has a screw to M adaptor as well. Does anyone else like playing around with a mixture of lenses?
