Hi all, long time lurker, first time poster. I just recently picked up a lot of Leicas from a nice lady in the mid west, and was extremely happy to find an early 12522 hood for the first version 35mm summilux steel rim. The inscription on it is 12522 H 1:1.4/35. I've only seen the variations inscribed OLLUX and 12522 part numbers, but never one with an H at the end. It looks like the OLLUX and regular 12522s with the oval sides and flat top and bottom. The hood part is a slightly lighter gray color than the black mounting rim. Any one have any info on this? I can;t seem to find any anywhere. Thanks so much!
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
