Esteban, During the Spanish Civil War Capa probably used either a Leica D or Model II. These cameras were made from Feb. 1932 thru 1948 or a Leica F or model III which was introduced in May of 1933. However, given how poor he was at the time, I don't think he could afford a new Leica. Afterwards, he used Contax cameras. During WWII Contax IIs and post war Contax IIas. WHen he died he was carrying a Contax and a Nikon S with a 50mm lens. I saw the camera (complete with blood stains) at an exhibit of his work at the old Niokon House in New York many years ago. Happy Snaps, Sal
