LTM mount Sonnar????

Let me know- and if taking it apart, remember the HIDDEN SET SCREWS, especially the one holding the name ring in place.

Looks good- remember to take off the aperture ring after undoing the coupling pin before removing the namering.

On the alloy lenses: most of them have a set screw holding the namering in place, not visible until down at this level. This 1936 lens does not have one.

MY "WAR-TIME" LEICA IIIb (1939/40).
I like all the pre-war Barnack cameras especially the Leica II and the Leica IIIb.
However I read that the body of the Leica IIIb was considerably strengthened with internal stiffeners and the lens flange is secured to the body with brass inserts - a modification necessitated by the increased weight of some of the new telephoto lenses and by the tendency of the flanges of earlier models to warp (ref:Leica- A History illustrating every and Accessory by Paul Henry van Hasbroeck Page 82).
I use a 5cm f3.5 Elmar on this Leica IIIb and it is a very nice camera to use.

Out and about today with the repainted 1940 IIIc and 1938 Xenon. Loaded with Fomapan.
Shot about 20 photos during Timberwolf Tracks, a memorial walk for the 104th Infantry Division.
