This was my late Grandad's camera given to me over Christmas by my Dad. He thought I should have it as seem to have inherited the photographer genes,

It was apparently bought in the sixties from Asia as duty free. Very expensive in those days and top spec from what I understand. Lens looks much better engineered that the G1's.. with a built in timer too! Looks similar to the latest retro Leicas I thought.


My questions to experts out there...

1) Would I be able to get film for it?
2) Could the fim then be converted to JPEG equivalent?
3) Is it would buying film to try if available? (Ie. was/ is it a good camera/ lens)
4) My main interest.. would the lens fit my G1 with an adapter? I can't seem to detach it!?

Many thanks in advance! :)
Matt
