New, the lens is $360, the Milich LTM-Leica M adapter is $100, the hood/filter holder is $160 and the filter is about $60. Optics and body are mint. $499 shipped
2. CV LTM Color Skopar - includes another $100 custom Milich LTM-Leica M adapter which is hard coded as a 21mm ASPH. Does not include the 21mm finder. This lens uses the same 39mm cut filter as the one above. Optics are perfect; barrel shows a little wear. $269 shipped.
