They say that great minds think alike.

I haven't got a hat like the one on the book, it must have been fashionable in the 30s.

Analoged, you can't have it, I think someone else has first refusal but it isn't going anywhere...yet! Have a look in the conversions thread, over the years I've posted quite a few pics there.

Mr Fibble, does you Super Nettel work reliably? It looks very tidy.

It does, except that the shutter is capping on 1/1000th of a second. Since that photo was taken I've refilled the engravings of the distance scale and DOF indicator on the focus wheel.
It's fine in operation, but it can be hard to see which aperture you have selected, as the indicator dot moves around with the focus.
I might have my Contax-repairman take a look at it sometime.

The replacement skin on it is a little too thin to my liking though.

I still wish the BP Leica III I bought from someone here on the RFF in 2012 hadn't 'disappeared' in the mail :\

Malcolm, I found it! Haha!

If your Contax repair man is happy with Super Nettels and also Contax Is could I have his details?

My Super Nettel is quite tidy and works flawlessly when I pour half a tin of lighter fluid into it. As the fluid dries out it seizes up...I have a Contax I that does the same...so we know what they need!

Johann -- beautiful ---- there's certainly something different about shooting these compared with m's, r's and digital... and the truth is... black paint barnacks are chick magnets

This one is from 1931, the first model with a standardized screw mount for interchangable lenses, called Leica I model C standardized. There was also a (very rare) model that could only use lenses that were adapted to one specific body.

Hi,

Difficult to describe simply as all interpretations will differ but chrome is shiny and nickel is greyish. You'll see when the III arrives.

Or you could go by the date; generally pre-1936 are nickel but there are exceptions. Part of your GAS should be pointing you at the "Leica Pocket Book" by Hove Foto Books...

Regards, David
