  1. Thanks for all the info everyone. William, beautiful photo; slightly squinting my eyes it looks like a 19th-century impressionist painting. Certainly looks like a Leica image to me also!
  2. I suppose I have another question relating to the back doors. On my M4 which is from the first batch of 3000 in 1967, the black paint is glossy. I've noticed other M4's (and I think were later models) with a more matte luster black finish and was wondering if my M4 rear door is possibly from a later m3 or m2. Does anyone happen to have a m4 to compare? My sn is 11777xx. Also, my m4 has the inscription of "open/close" "anf/zu" like on the m3's and m2's; do you guys think this is correct? All the M4's and Mda's I've seen online seem to be the variant without the wording. It does have the pl
  3. Had this posted in the wrong forum. Hello Everyone, This is more of a historical interest but does anyone happen to know the differences in the film reminder back pressure plates on the Leica M's? I have noticed that some have a high ASA of 200 while others are as high as ASA1300. I think I saw somewhere that one had a high ASA of 1000 but can't remember with clarity. I have a early M3 with a glass pressure plate and the film reminder is the type with high ASA of 200. Anyway, I was just curious as to when the changes took place and how many different types there were. Thanks for an

  5. I wanted to say thanks for the time to write and for the information gentleman; it is most appreciated!
  6. Evening, I posted earlier about some aperture screws that I'm looking for but am also curious about something in regards to this lens. I know that my lens is the 3rd version of the Elmarit 28mm but I've seen two different styles of this version; one with a more straight barrel shape and the other that is more tapered or having a bit more of a waist (like mine). Also, the focus tab, I think, has been described as a claw type instead of the smooth thumb type (forgive my lack of Leica terminology). My lens appears to be an early example with SN 29777xx made in 1979. From info on the net this
  7. Hello All, New forum member here and Leica owner as well. I am on the hunt for two small aperture ring screws for my 28mm f2.8 Elmarit-M v.III. Two of the three hold down screws are missing and I would like to replace them but not sure of the part number or for that matter the size of screw (pitch, etc.). If anyone has information, I would greatly appreciate it. I am open to alternative fixes as well. Wondering if another brand of lens would have the appropriate size screws that I could use instead? Much thanks! tim
