Per Leica, the '69 to '73 Summicron was identical OPTICALLY to the '73 to
'79 version, the only difference being in the mount.  Which doesn't mean
much:  Leica hid the recomputation of the 50mm Summilux for 5 years and
never officially admitted to the redesign of the 50mm rigid
first-generation Summicron.
