    I have a 5cm C.Simlar f/3.5 with a focus scale in meters and the old European f stop progression. I was wondering if someone out there knew which body is appropriate for this and if there was an unmatched body out there I could either buy it or sell you the lens

    Any LTM (Leica Thread Mount) camera will do. There are many such copies of Leica 3 series and some more modern voightlanders are LTM. The lens will function with an adaptor in any M mount lens as well.

    I know that any ltm camera will work: I use the lens on my voigtlander Bessa T: but it belongs to a Leotax, an early one, probably MIOJ. So if there is a mismatched body out there, put the two together and you have a sought after item
