I am testing the waters on selling this lovely lens that I picked up from Adorama Camera last fall and haven't used that much, thanks to my new 35 lux FLE.
Up for sale is my titanium paint 35 mm f/1.4 Summilux pre-asph. To my understanding, this is one of the last batches made of this lens, furthermore, the titanium lens typically came in a kit with a titanium M6. These lenses were manufactured in Germany. My copy is in excellent condition. The only issues that I see are some minimal paint chipping in the inner barrel where one would mount a series 7 filter, and some minimal paint loss in some of the distance scale. Glass is perfect.
I am selling this lens with original box as well. I purchased this lens from Adorama for $3,200 and would like to re-claim my investment. Prices on these lenses, as well as all Leica glass, has gone up, and this lens, due to its low production cycle, is collectible, though I purchased it to use it (and have too many 35's).
Pics to come later, when I get home, unless someone is interested before then. This is a high performing (particularly when stepped down) small f/1.4 lens, known for its unique "glow" wide open (spherical aberration, really) and is a favorite among many talented photogs here....I thought I'd use it, but it's been crowded out by too many other lenses
Thus Sales Price (minus shipping) : $3200
Shipping: typically USPS express or UPS shipping, $50
Total price: $3250
I would only sell within the continental U.S (CONUS only). I accept cashiers/bank checks, or personal checks (would have to clear into my account before I sent it). No Paypal accepted, sorry... I prefer prospective buyers with a buy-sell feedback history, so if you can point me towards some feedback, that'd be great.
