Does anyone know when (serial #) Leica switched from button rewind to lever?
I've just acquired an M2 circa 1959 sight unseen and curious what version I purchased. The vendor doesn't know because it's shipped and on it's way to me now. I like surprises but also should have asked more questions before purchasing!!
Just found some infos here:
quote: "Initially the M2 was launched with a push-button rewind release, but this proved unpopular and was replaced within the first year of production with a lever."
Let us know !
