Leica IC

Traduction de Christian Surle

This is the first Leica camera fitted with removable lenses. The earliest models were sold with their own lenses sets, because the distance between the mounting ring and the film plan was not standardized yet.; therefore, only the lenses modified for each body could fit it. These early models are very rare.

Afterwards, the making process became more industrial; thus, these modifications were useless, and the lenses became really interchangeable. These models are named Leica Ic O to distinguish them from the previous ones. A tiny O is engraved on the top of the female ring; You can hardly see it on the photograph, just behind the lens hood.
