Great camera, love mine. Make sue you get an external viewfinder, 
the finder in the IIIc is not parallax corrected. Leica made a 
universal finder
called VIOOH. The VIDOM is similar, but the image is reversed 
The SBOOI is your typical bright line finder, but collectors have 
driven the prices
way up. Voigtlander / Cosina makes a really nice replica of this unit.
Obviously the finder doesn't have to be made by Leica.

Look here for finders, lenses etc:

or for the Voightlander stuff.

My IIIc came with a 3.5/50 Elmar. I swapped it for a 2/50 Summicron 
the Cron is a little expensive, but you can get a 2/50 Summitar, which 
is almost
as good, for a lot less. Cosina also makes some lenses and the vintage 
1.8/50 is a real bargain.
