Chris, I use nothing but 400 speed film in my IIIf, and never use a
flash.  My standard lens is a Summicron 50/2 collapsible, and I
occasionally use a Nokton 50/1.5.

I think you will discover that you can shoot at very low speeds with a
Leica, in low light settings, and get good results.  In fact, with B&W
film, you can get astounding results.
