After review historical documents and a record of 200 samples, I am trying to solve those rumors about Leitz Xenon.❤️ Brief Conclusion: 1. The total of Taylor-Hobson (TTH) engraved Xenon would be close to 2000 lenses. 2. Xenon was designed and made under the Leica patent issued in 1937, with the collaboration of Schneider. 3. However, that patent was a modification based on the US and British patent of TTH. It needs TTH's license if selling Xenon in those countries. (So did the early Summarit.) 4. All TTH-Xenon were in feet scale, in order to sell in US and British.
Most of us seem to be photographers as well as collectors. Show me your favorite lenses, old and new alike. I like the Noctilux range for the extreme apertures, but I prefer the Summilux range for the best speed:size/weight ratio. Here’s a Summilux gathering of 21, 24, 28, 35, 50 and 75mm. All in black.
