That's a wonderful story which I enjoyed very much. Thank you for sharing it with us.

Back in 1973 my dad left me two screw mount lenses (and an M4) so your story brought back some nice memories of them.

If you liked that story, you might also like this one about my discovery of a lovely 85/1.5 Summarex lens:


I'm enjoying getting reacquainted with my LTM Leicas. The only concession to modernity is that I prefer to use auxiliary 50mm finders rather than squint through the camera peephole.

There is an 85mm finder for the Summarex, but they're horrendously expensive as they're a collector's item. I use a 90mm, which does the job just fine.
