Leica IIIg + 5/1.5

Yeah, the last Barnack Leica of the screw Leica line (I personally call them "Barnacks")
it was introduced after the bayonet mount at that time the Leica M3 was already in production. As an upgrade of the Leica IIIf, the Leica IIIg introduced these changes:
+ Improved viewfinder with a larger image for 50mm lens
+ moving frame viewfinder actuated by the rangefinder mechanism and corrected for parallax.
+ Large viewfinder window and small window to illuminate the frame.
+ Film type indicator on the camera back.
+ Geometric progression shutter speeds: T, 1 second, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/15, 1/30, 1/60, 1/125, 1/250, 1/500, 1/1000, B.
+ Electronic flash sync at 1/60 and 1/30 shutter speeds.
+ Self-timer lever

The camera was completely rebuilt and re-adjusted, all functions operates exactly. Film plane adjusted and film tested.

It´s a true classical Barnack Leica for people who really want to get that feeling of the 50s the golden age of Leitz and Leica.

The main feature of this set is the Leitz Summarit 5/1.5 lens with 15!! aperture blades, it has absolutely dreamy bokeh and so called "glove" wide open, I personally preferred to used up from f2.8.
This lens almost impossible to find without a lot cleaning marks on the front element but this particular exemplar is free from marks! The lens was cleaned inside, aperture blades were cleaned as well, no visible scratches, no haze, no fungus, good coating, some marks on the rear element, also nothing what will affect taking pictures, tested with the lens tester as well.
