Leica IIIc (Grey) Luftwaffen-Eigentum Camera with 5cm f2 Summitar & Case (Defaced)
Leica IIIc (Grey) Luftwaffen-Eigentum Camera w/ 5cm f2 Summitar & Case (Defaced). I rate it cosmetically a (7+). The camera is in proper working order; film advances properly and the viewfinder is clear, but the rangefinder has a dark vignette, making it a bit more challenging to focus. The shutter is accurate at all speeds. The included Leica 5cm f2 Summitar Lens, #529006, is in similar condition, also rated a (7+). The focus is a bit stiff at first, but loosens up after a bit of play; same with the aperture. The aperture functions properly, and the glass is clean and clear with no marks. There’s some haze, slight fungus, and dust inside, and they may affect image quality in certain light. The lens extends and retracts properly. This camera was part of FL #38079, and was delivered to the Luftwaffe on September 4, 1942. The camera has been defaced; the identifying Luftwaffe markings have been brassed/scratched off. The rear was partially repainted by a previous owner after it was defaced. This camera also includes a brown leather ever-ready case with burgundy felt lining and a neck strap.
