I Like Leica (stuff)!

More Leica-Leitz stuff. This well-preserved brochure is from March 1949.

The finder was useful from 35mm to 135mm – a must once you started using lenses above 50mm.

The Leica catalog code is ‘VIOOH’ and the catalog number is 66,006a.

The finder was quite expensive for 1949 at $77 plus tax. I believe this brochure is dated 3/49 if I interpret the code correctly.

A somewhat similar viewfinder from Japan ca. 1952 from an unknown maker. This one is dedicated to using 13.5cm lenses.
