Elmarit-R 28mm ROM version production run in 2002 with s/n's 3944114 - 3944313 of which there were only 200 hundred made according to leica wiki index. 1st image
I have read photographers using the 2nd image version, ROM and non-ROM before the year 2002 with no problems in the 11 333 series lenses. Their 28mm's look like the rear lens/ shroud of the 2nd image. I want to use the 1st image on a FF D800E camera if it clears my mirror, of course converting the mount with a Leitax mount. Dave with Leitax couldn't give me a answer if it would work. Maybe someone out there has one with a s/n from 2002 that looks like the 1st image, can compare it with the 2nd image and tell me if there is a difference in the height @ infinity focus on the rear lens/shroud. I don't know if the specs in the leica wiki index are for all later versions even with the different rear lens/ shrouds as seen in these photos. Thank you for your help.
