Barcode:


Produced between 1940 and 1955 as a combination lens hood and cap in its collapsed position. The SOOPD was the must have accessory for the collapsible Leica 50mm screw mount Summarit. Manufactured in both New York and Wetzlar during and after WW2. Today the Wetzlar version is more desirable of the two, due to its limited numbers. There two mounting styles, the slip-on and the more desirable clamp with set screw.

The SOOPD in this listing is the more desirable Wetzlar version. Engraved on its top plate

This example is in mint condition overall.. The barn doors spring into place without hesitation.The paint has a few minor signs of use on the left and right flaps. It has the more lens friendly clamp with set screw mount (Less likely to leave a mark on the lens when mounted). The SOOPD listed here would be an excellent addition to any Leica kit and a must with your Summitar 50mm f2 lens. Can also be used on your Summicron 50mm f2 SM collapsible lens as they made the same shade with the Summicron script!
