CameraQuest's Classic Camera Profiles

Join RangeFinderForum

Thanks for visiting.   As a camera dealer, collector and photographer, I've developed my own list of favorite cameras/lenses/accessories. These are some of them.    This page is under continual construction and updating.   At any one  time, at least 10 new pages are under preparation.    Older pages are sometimes updated, so if you like one of the profiles, re-visit it occasionally.      Stephen Gandy,  Los Angeles

Leica Rangefinder M and Screw Mount Serial Numbers   

LEICA SERIAL NUMBERS:   Leica Serial Number data  is courtesy of Leica.   I've organized it in several ways, editing and color coding the tables to enhance clarity. 

It answers many questions, but like all Leica lists, does not answer everything.   In what may be a first, most Leica Birthdays are listed too -- another reason to have a party!
