    I don't think the wide angle Tri-Elmar has ever been made in chrome.

    I think you're right wattsy. The only reason the first is rare is because it was too heavy in chrome and no one bought it

    Hi Kristian,

    I just sent you a couple of e-mails a few minutes ago mentioning the same thing Wattsy expressed regarding a chrome WATE (and some other related things). With regards to a chrome MATE, from memory although not certain, I believe both early and late versions of the MATE did come in chrome. Someone please correct me on this if I'm mistaken.

    Yes. It was available in Chrome.

    Hard to view it at the moment (on my cell phone), but that looks like Ver. 1 of the MATE? I assume the updated Ver. 2 of the MATE also came in chrome?

    That's version 1 indeed. I don't think Leica ever made a silver chrome of the MATE v2.
    Within Chrome V1, there has been also a limited "25 Jahre Leica Historica" edition in chrome.
