Leica M Cameras

The Leica M series cameras are listed here cronologically. The M3 was the first of the series, rather than the M1. In the screwmount models, the III series (like IIIg, IIIf, IIc) was the top of the line model, with a coupled rangefinder, the II series was like the III, but lacked the slow speeds, and the I series lacked the rangefinder as well. When they began development of the M series in the late 1930s, it was referredto as the Leica IV.
