According to 'The Linhof Camera Story'the most recent 5X7 Technika was the Super Technika V 13x18cm/5x7", with coupled rangefinder, made from 1964 to 1986.

The Master Technika and Master Technika were/are only made in 4x5.

The Super Technika V was discontinued in the 4x5 size in the 1970's, in 5x7 size in 1986. No replacement for the 57 Technika has been made since its demise.

i asked because i got one offered. as i am no specialist concerning technikas i am not shure about the modell. generally it looks like a V, but the lether is black. could it be a black V then?

It could more easily be a black III.

Get the serial number not a seller's description.

If you can see a picture, look for the front rise mechanism on the right of the camera as you face it. If it is a little "pump handle" racheting front rise lever, it is a V. I find this the easiest visual cue to distinguish a V from earlier models. There is a Tech V 5X7 for sale on Ebay now where you can easily see this.
