Slow down there! It is not my list! It is copied from Ghester Satorius's
book, "Identifying Leica Lenses". It does apply to both R and M lenses but
remember Erwin's caution that this is when the serial numbers were allocated
and not necessarily exactly when the lens was produced or even if it was
produced at all. It is a good guide though.
