    Lenses for Leica M3

    I'm tempted to buy an old Leica M3. Can I mount any current M-Mount lens on it?

    You should be able to use any M mount Leica, Zeiss, and VC lens on your M3. The rangerfinder in M3 can only focus to minimum distance of 1 meter.

    You can use any M mount lens as well as LTM lenses with an appropriate adapter.

    The best news? You have 60+ years of lenses to choose from! Leica, Zeiss, Voigtlšnder, Canon, FSU...

    I don't have one, but I think there's no 35mm framelines, unless you get one of those 35mm lens with goggles.

    Correct. Though one can use an external VF as well.
