    Leica 111G Canadian or not?

    I have picked up a nice Lieca 111G at work, but I can't work out it's pedigree.
    Going by the Leica serial numbers posted on the web, it's an ELC of which only 400 were manufactured, but the top plate states 'Leitz Wetzlar Germany'. Are the Canadian cameras more valuable? I'm no Leica expert, but I once sold a Canon NS and was amazed by its enormous value. :o
