Vintage Leitz Leica Ia 35mm Camera + Case + Rangefinder + Lens Hood + Instructions Kit. A rare 1931 Leitz Leica Ia 35mm Camera in very good used condition. This camera was made 1931 and has seen some use. All shutter speeds firing well. Hence, it is marked and scratched accordingly. A good working camera and very suited to travel due to its small and pocketable size. THIS CAMERA HAS BEEN HISTORICALLY MODIFIED (I WOULD GUESS SOMETIME IN THE LATE 1930S / EARLY 1940S) WITH THE ADDITION OF A NON-STANDARD FLASH CONTACT ON THE HOCKEY STICK FOCUS HOLDER. THIS DOES NOT DETRACT FROM THE UTLILITY OF THE CAMERA AND COULD BE EASILY REMOVED. This was the first truly successful Leica camera and was in production from 1925 to 1936. This camera is technically a viewfinder camera and is fitted with a very clear Magellanic telescope finder. However, Leitz rapidly realised the requirement for a compatible rangefinder and provided this with the FODIS finder, which comprises part of this sale, along with its original leather case. This camera comes complete with an excellent Elmar f3.5 5cm (fixed focal length) lens, which was standard for the camera. The lens fitted to this camera is not interchangeable (as is the case for all Leica Ia cameras) and has no code number, indicating that it is original to the camera. This lens is renowned for its clarity for both colour and black & white photography. Leitz Leica Ia camera with fixed Elmar f3.5, 5cm lens and original Leitz Leica black enamel lens cap. Leitz Leica FODIS rangefinder with original leather case. Leitz Leica FISON black paint lens hood. This is a second period lens hood and the first without the rectangular slot. Leitz Leica shoulder case with extremely rare long strap. Leitz Leica fitted case with long strap leather a little dry due to age, but will become more flexible with use. Leitz Leica Ia English instruction book. This book is in very good used condition and may be a reprint from the 1940s. NB: THE PHOTOGRAPHS FORM PART OF THE DESCRIPTION OF THE OBJECTS FOR SALE. I will be listing a total of around 10 cameras and some accessories. My reserves (if any) are set in order to attempt to recoup the value of my initial investment.
