Leitz actually marketed light meters made for screw mount cameras; they fit
in the accessory shoe.  I was fortunate enough to find a working one, and
used it for years (up to the late 80's) with a IIIf and a IIIg.  It was
accurate, too!  There was one by Metrawatt and a couple by Sixtus, I think.
Anyway, camera and meter together made a neat outfit, almost as nice as an M
camera with an MR-4.
