Subject: [Leica] Leica Thread Mount Camera Poll

At the moment I have film in a Leica II with a 3.5 Elmar, and a IIIa with a 
1.5 Zeiss Sonnar.  I also have a IIIc, an M2, an M4-2 and a 'flex SL.  The 
old screwmounts get at least as much use as the rest.

Tomorrow morning I'm off to Nova Scotia, PEI, and the Magdalen Islands, for 
three weeks.  I'm taking the II, the M2, a Rolleiflex, pieces of a Nikon F2 
outfit, and a little Galvin 2x3 view camera.
