-The THIRD R9 EVER MADE in the first batch of only 50 when production started in 2002
#2855051-2855100 PRODUCTION BATCH # TOTAL 50 MADE
-Made in Wetzlar, Germany
-Grey anthracite finish
-This was the very last of the Leica R camera bodies. One of only two that they made on their own (no longer working with Minolta) loaded with many camera functions and one of only two 35mm SLR cameras to be able to accommodate both a film back or digital back (the second being the earlier Leica R8)
-Very nice and desirable anthracite finish; the only other camera Leica made this finish was on the MP Anthracite special edition set! If you want an R camera, this is THE one to have.
This is a very VERY special example. Not only the special finish and being MINT but also being THE 3RD ever made. WOW
