Well, the details of the Leica IV are a bit hard to run down, though the original survives in the Leica Museum. My figures are that it had a 60mm RF baseline and 0.9X magnification, for an effective baseline of 54mm. The early Contax I, with its effective baseline of 92.7mm, still takes the honours as the longest 35mm RF baseline. Marc email@example.com FAX: +540/343-7315 Cha robh bas fir gun ghras fir!
