Thank you. This is great information. I was a bit impulsive when I bought this camera a few years back, and just this summer am I putting any film through it. Knowing that it is a Bay 1, I assume this is short for Bayonet, I can probalby start searching Ebay now. I just noticed that in my manual it mentions a "close up adapter" which would be nice to find as well. It sure would be nice to get closer than 3.5 feet once in awhile.
On the angelfire.com site it mentions that..."Cable release can be used if you get a Leica adapter which screws onto the large thread around the shutter button". I think I'll start watching Ebay for this accessory too! Does anyone know if there are a multitude of Leica adapters out there? I've often thought a cable release would be a nice addition.
