Introduced in 1980 as the Leica R4 mot electronic. However, since no motor actually was built in, but rather available separately, the term was not well received, & the same camera was re-introduced in '81 as the Leica R4. Unfortunately many of these cameras were encumbered with electronic circuits problems. Notably, cameras with serial numbers below 1.600.000. However, those still working after 30+ years, have either been repaired or not likely to give problems.
