Product Description

Details

Offered is a very nice Leica I to II conversion complete with 50mm f3.5 Elmar lens with short tube. In the past it was possible to upgrade the cameras at Leica. In this case one of the previous owners upgraded his Leica I to a Leica II. After the upgrade the camera was supplied with a built in rangefinder and speeding times up to 1/500. The upgrade was quite expensive as that time but of course more interesting as buying a new camera. Camera is technically in perfect working condition. Speeding times are accurate and finder is bright and clear. Base plate shows some signs of use. The lens is probably the original lens which was mounted on the camera when it was a Leica I. The lens has not been modified and is still the lens with short tube. Focusing goes smooth. A bit of haze is visible. Complete with ELPRO, ELPIK and ELPET close up lenses (no. 1, 2 and 3 all in boxes).
