Ciao everybody here, I'm new to this forum and quite new to the Leica world too. I've searched through the posts, but still no answer to my question, so I post it here, hoping in your experience and kindness. I went to Germany last june and in a shop in Koln I found, to my surprise, a new M9 body in grey: I simply didn't resist and bought the camera, along with a Summicron-M 1:2/50mm lens. Now this lens is uncoded and I don't understand why. Is it normal? Was it built before 2006? And if this is the case, why the shop sold me such an old lens? The serial number is 3915155 and the "Verk.Nr." (type of lens?) is 11624. I understand it's the last type built, type IV, am I wrong? I'm impressed by the results and I'm living a dream dreamed for so long with this camera, but I want everything ok, specially if I plan to buy other lenses, so maybe I will have the lens coded by the italian importer. Thanks you all for what I learn reading and looking your photos, ...and for your answers! Ciao Angelo
I've got an early version 35mm f/2 with bugeyes or goggles. Can this be hand coded, given that it triggers (I think) the 50mm framelines and then demagnifies them through the goggles? Modifying the mount to act like a 35mm would then throw off the view through said goggles. Thanks in advance, M
