For sale is a well used Leitz Wetzlar Elmar 50mm f/2.8. It's the red dual scale 1957-1974 version, the one before the Elmar-M. I will also include a B+W UV/IR cut filter.
As you can see from the pictures, the lens has seen better days. Remember, it is quite an old lens. The front element has a number of very light cleaning marks, no severely deep scratches. These marks have not affected the image quality at all (I'll post sample images below). It has absolutely no hazing and the aperture blades show light wear marks but are free from oil.
I'm asking $350 (Paypal) for the lens and it's original front lens cap & the B+W UV/IR cut filter. I'll cover shipping costs. I'm located in Boston, MA, USA so I'd prefer a CONUS transaction.
