After selling numerous cameras and lenses on behalf of a friend, I ended up with a Leica Ic with no baseplate, no film advance spool, and no lens or finder. Of course, I sought help here, and one of our members supplied me with a bunch of IIIa parts including the needed film spool. Another member had a fine Voigtlander 25mm Skopar with an excellent current bright line finder at a good price, and Don Goldberg (of DAG Parts and Repair) supplied the baseplate. Thank you all. This is a true "point and shoot Leica!" At F/11 I can zone focus from infinity to 1.15m set at 3m. I wasn't sure what to do with this camera body, but now I solved the problem. At the present, this is my only Leica, but it seems to fit my style. I am more into digital for fun photography right now, but I will add this to my bag. I wonder how well this might be for street/people photography. I am adding another posting for a Leica thread mount case bottom to protect the camera while in use. Many of us don't know what to do with Leica If and Ic camera bodies. This is one option.
