I'v contacted skgrimes camera repair (machine shop)I will let them make a c33 film advance lever for about $65 I supose after the first the rest will be cheaper. They can also make sme a lens hood for my 50mm leica summarit for about $65.00
I had one too. Size-wise and mechanically it was almost perfect however it really wasn't sharp enough so I ended up with a V4 Summicron instead.
Hi, so overall is this a nice lens? Compare to CV 35mm/2.5 (I have one came with the Bessa R)? I see BH has one for about 300 bucks.
I got a nice black metal push-on lens hood for a 135 Hektor a couple of years ago from cameraquest.com. I just checked the site and couldn't find them, but it might be worth an email to see if they still have one.
Fedka.com has a couple of A36 push on filters available used and they have 40.5 lens hoods listed as well. Here is the page:
I just ordered one of the 2x yellow 36mm filters for a 1951 Industar-22.
...If any of this is of any help....
My Summarit is equipped with a Leitz E41 clearly marked.
You can get a hood for the Summarit from cameraquest.com for $50 including the front cap. I purchased one in the silver and it matches well with the chrome of the summarit.
The lens should perform well f/8 and smaller, it is pushing it to use 5.6 if you want poster size prints, but if you just want 10x8 it is ok...
