LEITZ Summicron-M 2,0/5cm rigid dummy
Leica produced so called dummy models of then current camera models and lenses beginning in the 1930s. The dummys were assigned for display use and are not working units. Mostly consisting of the main camera body, the top and base plate and finished with a set of controls.
The lens dummys were usually made with a full working focussing mount without optical system and aperture. Apart from the camera dummys the lenses have no serial number and no marking as a dummy!
The quantity made looks to be even lesser than camera dummys and so is very uncommon to find.
Due to the fact that dummys were made in a low quantity they evolved quickly to an idividual collectors area.
Offered is a Leitz Summicron-M 2/5cm dummy lens in rigid mount. The condition is very good. The focus is working smooth but the aparture ring is a tad loose.
What is special about this dummy is, that the lens is marked with feet distance scale.
Total production: not known exactly, it is assumed that the production was very low!
Rarity forecast: R7
