    Leica IIc, 5cm Elmar, 135mm Culminar, vf, Leicameter

    Leica IIc with 5 cm f3.5 Elmar in beautiful shape. Also 135mm f3.5 Steinheil Culminar with Leica 4809 viewfinder, variable from 35mm to 135mm. Also Leica METER 2 in case with incident light adapter and booster cell. The meter doesn't seem to be responding to light. The lenses are clean and clear, the camera has minor signs of wear but no dents or dings and no missing vulcanite. The shutter speeds are a bit slow, but the shutter is in great condition and working as it should. The range/viewfinder are clean and clear. This is one of the rarer screwmount models and is in lovely shape. $495 including Paypal fee and postage within the U.S.

    Nice camera. This serial number shows a manufacturing date somewhere in 1948-1949. This means a camera of 65 years old!
    Someone get this camera and have a lot of fun and excitement with it.
    I have a Leica III (1936) with the 5 cm collapsible lens (uncoated version) and I like it: very nice for B&W photography.

    a IIc that has been upgraded to a IIf, really: note the flash synch dial, the film type indicator and PC flash plug. Seriel number puts it definitely in the IIc area, but very close to the IIf run, which started in 1952 --- so at some point this was either upgraded, or the serial number is wrong, which is doubtful.

    Odd upgrade -- usually they would add slow speeds and make a II into a III.

    veddy interesting.

    Yes, you must be right. I hadn't realized that.

    Hey! Beautiful machine. Would you consider selling either the body or elmar or both by themselves? If so, how much?

    Thanks!

    I could sell the body and Elmar for $395, or everything for $450.
