Leica MP 0.72x (10312/10314) LHSA 1968~2003 Gray hammertone finish Special Edition rangefinder model - MIR Image Library

 


Anyone can help me to explain why the two boxes each has different product code in the LEICA MP LHSA 1968~2003 Hammertone finish kit ? I came across this Japanese online trader www.matsumoto-camera.com which has two of these being on sale and couldn't understand the differences. Both looks identical but the 10314 unit can't read the finder mag. imprints. Is this has to do with Finder Magnification or something else ? There are a series of product codes that relate: 10301, 10312, 10313, 10314 - could be codes for individual accessories such as the Summicron-M 1:2/35 ASPH, Leicavit-M or even the hammertone finish lens hood. You may help to offer your help as I don't have this camera nor managed to download the original press release which could had provide the right answers.
