LEICA M4-2 silver
After the intermittently production end of the Leica rangefinder cameras in 1975/1976, there was a persistently high demand for this camera system from professional photographers and amateur photographers. In response to this development, Leica presented the Leica M4-2 as a follow-up model of the Leica M4 at the Photokina in 1976.
Based on the M4, however, the Leica M4-2 brought with it a number of innovations that were specifically tailored to the needs of professional photographers. It was now possible to use a motor winder with every regular camera, and to use it even under extreme climatic conditions with a cold protection adpter.
The Leica M4-2 was delivered from 1977/78 in black chrome finish. The production was no longer held in Wetzlar, but Canadian Leitzwerk in Midland, Ontario.
On the occasion of the 100th birthday of Oskar Barnack, a gold plated jubilee model with a circulation of 1,000 pieces was produced in 1979.
The silver-plated Leica M4-2 offered here was produced exclusively on special customer request and had no official Leica order number!
It is the rarest and most beautiful version of the Leica M4-2 and also one of the rarest Leica M models ever!
