By shirubadanieruI couldn’t find a place to share and / or discuss LTM lenses only so I’m creating this thread and will be adding pictures here from 1930s Leica lenses (and maybe some more modern LTM lenses). For those of you who also shoot with LTM lenses fell free to contribute to this thread
By shirubadanieruHi everyone, I’ve recently acquired a Leica III and I’ve been enjoying this camera so much that I have not touched my M3 at all for over a month now. I was wondering if there are any Barnack Leica users here who could recommend me their favorite lenses for the system. I currently own:
- Nickel Elmar 5cm f3.5 (elmar, uncoated from 1933)
- Chrome Elmar 5cm f3.5 Red scale (coated from 1954)
I’m thinking of getting rid of one of the Elmars (still have to decide which one) and get another 50mm that is compact / light but a bit brighter and a 28/35mm as well.
By TomB_txSome months back I supported a Kickstarter effort to produce a tiny light meter for old cameras, to be made in Canada. After some delays due to COVID, the first production is finished, and I received my unit today. It is easily the smallest and lightest light meter I've seen. The body is 3-D printed, but seems good quality. The control buttons are also tiny, but easier to use than I expected. Nice clear LCD display on the back. Works in either Aperture or Shutter priority. It calibrated easily to my Luna-Lux SBC and seems very accurate.
Here it is on a IIIf, where it works fine, although is very close to the shutter speed dial. On a model III or II it is too close, so the dial can't be lifted to set the speed.
Otherwise it is worth a look. The designer called the company REVENI LABS.

By nefariousHopefully nobody minds me asking an ignorant question...
I have an LTM Elmar 50mm f/2.8 and, reading the Ken Rockwell review, he recommends a Yellow #022 39mm filter for b&w photography with that lens. However, what I am really unsure about is how the filters fit to my lens and, if I am not to buy an authentic Leitz/Leica filter, what I need to look for on eBay, etc. I don't see any thread inside the collapsible lens so I am guessing that the filters either fit over the lens like the lens cap or somehow grip onto the inside of the lens.
Grateful for any insights plus suggestions re where I can get them!
By max.mlzrDear Leica lovers,
I will be buying a Leica IIIF soon, but wanting to carry it around I wonder if there is company that still produces Leica Thread Mount Camera ever-ready cases, because I don't want to rely on the old and often damaged old ones from Leica.
Can anyone help me out?
