  • This lens was a wartime development made with improved Xnon coating. This coating increased the contrast and reduced the flare. Presumably the know-how agreement between Leitz and Schneider no longer inhibited a change to a Leitz name. Made in a bayonet mount after the M3 appeared. The focusing scales were in feet or meters.

    There were different variations of this lens. One version  of the lens for export carried the TTH U.S. patent number because this had not expired, but the British patent had. Another version had the aperture scale on the front end of the mount and the index mark on the rotatable ring. Later models were reversed. Some lenses are marked "Ernst Leitz Canada". Last, they were available in screw mount or bayonet mount. SOOIA screw mount, SOOIA-M bayonet mount.

    This particular lens (made in 1957) is very clean and shows signs of normal use. The focusing ring moves very smoothly with nice drag. The aperture ring moves freely with positive detents.
