I have decided to sell this lens, lenshade, and B+W 46mm UV filter as I haven't used it enough to justify keeping it. All of it is in beautiful, like new condition. I'd rather it at 9.9/10--the only flaw being a tiny chip in the black paint on the front edge of the shade. I bought all 3 pieces new in March from Popflash.com. The lens (black), is extraordinarily sharp. Google it and you will see universally high marks for this lens, slightly wider than a 28mm which is helpful in tight spots. Also included is Zeiss front cap, rear cap, and all packaging for the lens plus the plastic container that came with the filter. You can get a 25mm or 24mm viewfinder from Voigtlander (high quality, reasonably priced), or Zeiss or Leica. Note: I had this lens coded by Don Goldberg (DAG Camera Repair), coded as a 24mm Elmarit, and he adjusted the mount to bring up the correct framelines on the M9. This lens is a beauty. I have nearly 400 transactions on EBay--with 100% positive feedback, so bid with confidence. Shipping anywhere in the US for $10--if you want insurance, you will need to pay a bit extra for it. Overseas shipments considered, but please contact me first for shipping estimate. I have $1100 (lens), $84 (shade), $38 (filter), and $120 (coding). I am asking $1125 for the set. I'll eat the PayPal fees. Please contact me with questions. Thanks.
