    Hi all
    I am trying to get on top of the serial numbers of the Koni-Omega Rapid M and Koni-Omegaflex M series.. Would be grateful if you could PM me the serial numbers of your

    Koni-Omega Rapid M or Koni-Omega M
    number is on the back, the left of 'PATENT' stats with a '4' and ends in a letter'

    Koni-Omegaflex M
    number is onon the bottom frame, on the back, the left of 'PATENT' stats with a '7' and ends in a letter

    to try and work out the pattern. I am very close and need a few more to beef up the dataset

    No need for the numbers from the RapidOmega 100 and 200 or the Koni-Omega Rapid (without the 'M'), happy to have them, but they don't aid that decoding...if you want to supply these too, then the numbers are on the back or, in case of of the Koni-Omega Rapid, underneath the lens mount (and then starts with an 'A" or a "b")
    Thanks guys

    My Koni-Omega M has a serial number of 46138M. Good luck to you. If you can date my camera, I'd be very interested. It's my favorite camera, despite it's shortcomings for portraits.

    100 was 31789 and my Omegaflex was 71816B. They're gone now but I have good memories and images from them.
