Here I am grouping Leica items that are not either bodies or lenses. None are uncommon nor are any particularly valuable individually. However, they are an important part of the Leica photographic system and examples of technology of the 1930's through 50's. Collectors can appreciate the fine quality of the lenses and bodies, but the accessories other than hoods or filters are often ignored because they may appear somewhat primitive and even of obscure utility.
Many of us can recall using copy stands and close-up devices, flashes and various camera mounts, all the while looking forward to more modern designs. These pieces have actually been obtained primarily due to the fact that they were included with camera bodies and lenses. (See also Accessory rangefinders & viewfinders)
