Leica 1 A

Vintage Leica
Leica 1A (1930)


A fixed lens Leica 1A is a very capable tool and gives the photographer all the benefits of shooting film. The 80+ year old Elmar 50/3.5 can provide all the light and shadow details needed for a successful photograph.

I want to thank Tamarkin Camera for the mention on their Instagram account, https://www.instagram.com/tamarkinchicago, Dan and his staff are fantastic to deal with for anything Leica. Over the years I have come to rely on Dan’s knowledge of everything leica. As I am obsessed with the older vintage gems of the 1930’s, its important to get a camera is in good working order, clean optics with the older lenses and a no nonsense return policy..I get all that from Tamarkin Camera. While this may seem to be a bias plug, I’m really just giving you a resource…I have bought on ebay once, never again. So a reliable dealer is a must for the photographer who wants to use leica cameras, especially the older vintage models…
