The information is designed to help the purchaser of historical pieces quickly determine differences so most of the important facts are listed. Two MTF graphs for almost all lenses except a few older ones. The biggest aperture and the best aperture MTF are given. Pictures of nearly all lenses and variations. A thrill to read and use. Erwin Puts comments are included with the MTF's.
Includes Visoflex system adapter chart and lenses and Telyt information. R lens camming explained and pictured. Screw and Bayonet M and R Body historical chart with important yet limited list of defining features given. Digital to Digilux-1 plus Leica S1 "scanner" studio camera for M & R lenses digital basics and models. Compact cameras until 2002. Page 88-90 MTF and filter types explained (missing is filter size and thread chart!). Special body models and lenses listed. Servicing discussed.
Serial numbers for bodies and lenses. Add to this the "Leica Handbook 2002/2003" (buy direct from Leica) which has better filter information and a few web downloads from Leica USA and you can identify and build a Leica system.A truly great reference book that I use constantly to compare and purchase lenses. THE best of these quick reference books.
