New classic system
Just excited to let you know, I just received a 1932/33 camera set:
Leica III, black & nickel
50mm Summar, black rim, nickel
35mm Elmar, nickel + original black front and rear caps
90mm Elmar, black & nickel + original black lens cap
VIDOM viewfinder, black & nickel
FISON hood, black
Love the fact that they're all black and nickel. The Summer black rim is the earliest version, I believe and rather uncommon.
The whole set is quite dirty, 85 years of cigarette smoke and hand grease leave their imprint. Surprisingly, the camera speeds sound OK, even the slow ones. The glass of the lenses is OK, but they could use a good cleanup.
Anybody have info on how to open the 90 Elmar to clean the aperture setting and the inner surfaces?
I'll show pictures later.
