Product Description

Details

Very nice not often found Leica I to IIIA Syn conversion complete with matching Leica 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 IIIA Syn which was one of the most expensive upgrades at that time. After the upgrade the camera was supplied with a rangefinder, short speeds and was also synchronised. The upgrade was quite expensive as that time but of course more interesting as buying a new camera. The camera comes with a Leica 50mm f3.5 Elmar with short tube (no serial as this lens was upgraded from an early 50mm Elmar lens as well). Camera itself is technically also in perfect working condition. Speeding times are accurate. Lens elements are clean. No haze, fog, scratches or cleaning marks. Interesting set.
