They're nice lenses, if not fogged. Uncoated lenses can be cleaned quite easily, when the repairman succeeds in opening them.
Is the one you're going to look at chrome or nickel?

Oh yes, now we're talking...great shot. This could be a vintage "40"ish photo, if we did not know better.
Just love the way the uncoated Elmar render.

Simon,

Great when it is not fogged. Must be the "thick cam" variation (infinity lock @ 11 o'clock).

Mine has number 144479, also from 1932, also thick cam.

Erik.

This setup became my daily user in the last half year.
Usually I choose the Canon if documentation is the main aspect, the Tanar (a Sonnar-clone) for more experimental/funny things.

I know, nothing for Leica-purists... but works fine for me.

That's a 1950 Leica IIC isn't it? ~ Nice camera to work with ~ I'f like to see some samples taken with that Tanar lens sometime

my first Leica

Thanks to a RF member I got this nice IIIc and added a 1951 Summitar. After quite a learning phase in film loading now I succeeded and the small beauty is in a testing phase.

Best regards,
Walter

Buzzardkid--really excellent camera and a REALLY great photo.
Thanks for posting.
Where does the name "buzzardkid" come from?
We have buzzards here in the South US--but they are--well--buzzards--scavengers.
You know--not nice birds!

My Humble Leica II

My Leica II with 5cm Elmar f3.5 lens is one of my most treasured cameras. A roll of film and the "sunny sixteen' light meter is all that is needed. A pure picture taking machine - end of story!

Ha!

In fact it's a slightly too loose translation: in NL we know a bird called 'buizerd', it's a bird of prey, not a vulture. You ornithologists probably know the English name for it.

I grew up on the Buizerdstraat in my home town.

As I'm always wearing black, if I'd be any scavenger it would most likely be a crow...
