Hi Gabe,

A couple of months ago I was looking at 1c's too and called Leica USA in 
Northvale, N.J.  Niels Thorsen sent me out a big envelope full of info.  
Since I didn't end up buying a 1c, I passed the info on to another LUGger 
who needed it.  I seem to remember that the Elmar could be used, but with 
some sort of adjustment ring, which might be discontinued.  It'd be best 
to call Leica for this, IMHO.
