Thanks Len. I'll look for the 111f instructions and the Hove book.

Hi Hoppy,

Congrats on the IIIc. It's a nice little camera. That with a 50/3.5  
Elmar can slide right into your jeans pocket. Film loading is the  
biggest pain with the LTM bodies. I downloaded a film cutting templet  
and sized the jpg so the film sprockets matched up to a piece of  
film. I cut every leader to size now. No problem. I'll give you the  
url as soon as I put it in my gallery.

I could never find a manual for the IIIc on line, only the IIIf. They  
are the same body except the IIIf has flash sync and a self timer on  
the later bodies. For Christmas my son bought me a Hove collectors  
book,  "Instructions for the use of the Leica camera Models c, f &g"  
It's an actual duplication of the original 3 manuals done better then  
the originals. I have 4 very nice LTM lenses which I use with the  
VIOOH finder. That I have the downloaded manual for.
