Leitz decided to introduce this all-black camera series with the Leica R4 mot electronic name, to emphasize the technology and features involved. However, since no motor actually was built in, but rather available separately, the term was not very well received, the name was soon abandoned, and replaced by simply Leica R4, available in 1981. A chrome version was launched the following year. A slightly modified model, the Leica R4s, having fewer automatic modes and hence quite durable, was made available in 1983 to justify a reduced price in order to help increase sales. Still another sales-adjusted model, the Leica 4s-2 was launched in 1985 with a few conveniences added. It was called the R4s-P in North America.
