    FS: Leica 50mm Summilux Pre-ASPH Close focus

    For some reason I have not bonded with this focal length on my M8 (and I have no plans to get the M9), so I am selling this mint copy of this lens (the only thing not mint about the lens is that the front lens cap has a few minor scratches). It is the latest version of the Pre-ASPH model with a 46mm filter thread, which focuses to 0.7m, instead of the older versions whose closest focusing distance is 1m. Some people prefer how the Pre-ASPH version renders an image even more than the much more expensive ASPH version.

    This lens comes with the caps and the Leica leather zip pouch, but not the box, manual, etc. Here is more info:

    Product Description
    An extremely fast standard lens that is used a great deal in reportage photography. Sharpness and contrast are still outstanding at full aperture. Its extraordinary speed of f/1.4 permits useable shutter speeds even in poor light situations. This lens has remarkably neutral color rendition and accurate color differentiation. It is available in black anodized, silver chrome and titanium finishes.

    Features
    Focus Adjustment Manual Focus
    Zoom Adjustment Fixed Focal Length Lens

    I can email some photos if anyone is interested.

    Thanks!

    Photos of the lens are now posted at: http://petermendelson.zenfolio.com/p644959306

    By the way, I forgot to mention that I hand coded the lens and it works with my M8 - you can see the two coding marks in one of the photos (this can be wiped off if desired).

    Thanks,

    Peter
