Infrequent visitor to this site but now and then I get the urge to pickup my R Camera and do film again. Last I asked this forum I was encouraged to do so and you all helped me find out that I needed new seals as I got false light on my film. I got the seals and then promptly moved out of country. I.e. It sitting there waiting for me to pick it up again and start doing something with it. I have a R3 bought new in 1976, and a R4 bought new by my uncle I don't know when. So where is the question you might ask, sorry for the long intro, and it will have to wait for yet another sentence. My uncle is asking me to help him selling his M7 gear, 4 lenses, and in this regard I looked under the M Cameras forum and saw some wonderful B/W photos by a gent in England, and that spurred me on to get going again. I had a look into eBay and a Swiss equivalent and got interested in buying a R9, and finally the question, what lenses can I use on it and what do I have???? My equipment is in the US and I'm here in Switzerland for yet another week before I can look at my 4 R Lenses but there are talk about 3 cam, and maybe other, as well as ROM Etc how do I check if my Lenses are 3 cam or, and can they be used on the R9? And what do I loose if not? Sorry for the long post but I'm re-getting the Leica bug
