Subject: Re: [Leica] f/4 Super Angulon 21mm for R-How many cams? and when?

According to my Leica R Compendium, the original 21mm was made from 1964 to
1968 for the Leicaflex. In 1968, a new version was introduced, for the
Leicaflex SL and the R3. This leads me to guess that you can come across both
2-cam and 3-cam versions of this lens. The 2-cam speciments can be converted
to 3-cam.
