It helps me keep reviewing these oldies when you get yours through these links, thanks! November 2011 LEICA Reviews LEICA Lenses lesser-brand reviews Collapsed on a LEICA IIIf. Los Angeles, 1934 (© 1.3 MB JPG from M9 DNG at f/4,5).Foresta Fence (full-size © JPG from M9 DNG at f/18).To be more exact, I do know the Titanium and original M6 .85 numbers are listed, but their numbers are mixed in with regular M6 production numbers.It's probably a fair guess that many variations and special models which get collector's notice, did not get that much notice at the factory, so the serial numbers were just mixed in with the regular production for that model.There are also pretty fishing villages and harbour towns to explore along the coast and great days out for the little ones including Dairlyland Farmworld for some fun down on the farm and The Lappa Valley Steam Railway with its miniature linked railways, boating lake, crazy golf and play areas.The surf capital of Britain, Newquay, is only five miles away with its world famous facilities but for those who are looking for a quieter more tranquil seaside holiday, Cubert is an ideal choice with its lovely walks to beaches such as Polly Joke which was voted one of the country's top secret beaches.The Cornish village of Cubert offers a choice of pubs, restaurants and a general store and is ideally placed within walking distance of Crantock beach, Holywell Bay and Polly Joke.
I use the red scale variety, also the coated and uncoated originals on my LTM cameras and get very pleasing results in black/white and colour print film. It's a good lens but not a great lens by the standards of today. thankyou its the vintage look I'm after The M-mount Elmar 50mm f/3.5 is a great lens and, what is more, mechanically much better than the original Elmar screw mount. Untitled ( by Am Steinsgraben ( on Flickr Sorry for re-post. 1949 vintage, probably at f5.6 or f8 on Eastman Double X. My first Leicas were the IIc and IIf with Elmar 5.0 and 3.5 cm f/3.5 lenses.
As you might imagine, this makes documenting many unusual cameras almost impossible -- a nightmare for collectors, an income opportunity for forgers. Note: This was Leica's first electric motor drive M camera, appearing some 6 months before the M4-M.
An unknown number of motorized M2's exist, modified by Leitz NY, without the M2-M engraving.
sorted within each group by starting serial number in that group.
Rangefinderless M's are listed together at the end of the page.
Elmar is a four hundred year old period cottage complete with a massive Inglenook fireplace and bread oven situated in a quiet village location tucked away next to the ancient parish church just a mile away from the sea.
