Rainer Giacomelli, a Leica devotee based in France, has gone to the effort of compiling the main parameters of all M lenses (plus five screw-mount lenses) produced since 1954, and publishing them on a wall-poster measuring around 60 x 80 cm. Printed on high-gloss paper, the poster features details such as: dimension, weight, minimum focus distance, minimum/maximum aperture; lens cap, hood, filter thread, as well as distinctions between different variants; also listed are the number of units produced, type of optical design and 6-bit encoding. A blank line has been left for collectors to enter the serial number of their particular model.

The price for one poster is € 25 including delivery within Europe, or € 38 with worldwide shipping. Ten copies are charged at a bulk discount of €144 (Europe) or €154 (worldwide).
