> The production of the R cameras switched from Portugal to Germany during the last years of the R5. Around Photokina 1988 I guess, as for the M6.


My R5, serial number 19017XX, is engraved, "LEICA CAMERA GMBH(;)
GERMANY(.)"  I do not have a year/serial number list for R camera
bodies, but from M camera lists, I would hazard a guess of 1990-91 for
its manufacture.
