    SOLD: Leica 28mm 2.0 asph FS

    I have an opportunity to get a camera depending on raising some funds, and, reluctantly, I'm offering my mint, black, coded 28 cron for sale. I bought it new from Popflash 2 1/2 years ago or so. I bought a 35 lux hood for it which I think works great with less intrusion into the frame. The lens will come with a Leica IR filter, the 35 lux hood, it's own hood and all the original components and box. I'll require $3000 net to me, a very good price I think given that it's now $3995 new, without the extra hood and filter. Pictures if needed, but it looks exactly like a mint 28 cron, and satisfaction is guaranteed. If the lens doesn't sell quickly, I'll keep it as the camera won't last. thanks.....Peter

    You had better get in quick, Peter has a way of changing his mind, and, to be quite honest, he'd be mad to sell this lens.

    Buy it before he changes his mind.

    Last lens sold before you sell the whole kit off is this lens. No one should be selling this lens unless they give up on RF. Best lens Leica ever made, or maybe better said the most important one.

    And Peter isn't going out of RF . . .so he's obviously going to change his mind!

    is that the sound of friends rescuing a temporarily insane buddy from hurting himself?

    That's the one
    . . . . . . and whilst it's very pretty, I just bought a lovely (never used) M7 a few weeks ago, and I've put a few films through it . . but I'd hate it if I'd swapped my 28 'cron for it!

    . . . . . . it is pretty though . . . haven't you got a grandmother you could sell?

    Well not quite, but I think I'm convinced to put up my lovely, lovely silver 24 elamrit at an irresistible price.... ;>) I won't get as much for it as the 28 cron, but it won't get as much use on my M9 as the 28. I'm going to post it now.....Peter

    Is the 35 lux hood wide enough for the M9?

    Regardless Peter the 28mm shoots images and that is the bottom line. This just holds film, it's out what front that counts.

    Before M9 fever hit this lens was going for2300 or so. Last March I got a 50 asph lux for 1900 with a uv ir and a uv leica filters both. No w the 50 is 3200 or so used waht a diff a full frame m9 makes.

    The 28 cron is no longer for sale, thanks to those expressing interest.

    Interesting thread. I have both the 24 Elmarit Asph and the 28 Cron and I find the 24 to be superior in resolution to the 28, quite noticeably so. I find that as elements in the scene become increasingly small, the extra resolution of the 24mm is actually quite beneficial, even when cropping to a 28mm field-of-view. If it were not for the f:2 of the 28 Cron, I would have ditched mine long ago.

    Are you comparing ASPHs to ASPHs?

    Tom, yes, the 28/2 Cron is aspherical.

    Tell poor Peter when he's just sold his 24 why don't you!

    I don't have a 24, but my 28 is pretty sharp - maybe you have a sub-standard one? (or perhaps a super-standard 24).

    Peter - congratulations on the sale of that lovely 24 (which I wanted so badly).
    I hope your new piece of bling provides satisfaction - it certainly is pretty. Are you going to shoot with it (or just look at it).

    all the best

    Thank you Jono- Actually, I have held of on that M7, as lovely as it is and as fast as it made my ticker go. For sure, if I own a camera it is to shoot it, period. In the end my head stepped in and concluded the camera was significantly over priced. Since I'm still paying off the 21 lux, I'm glad to have sold the 24 though. best....Peter

    Jono, I thought the same as you so tested my 28 Cron against two others at the dealer and the 24/2.8 Elmarit Aspherical bested them all. Sorry Peter

    Nothing to be sorry for. The 24 elmarit is an extremely brilliant lens. The 28 cron doesn't quite resolve like the 24 elamirt but it's lower contrast and smooth tonality makes it one of the prettiest drawing lenses of all. For my use, the 28 cron was the one to keep. (It's not sold). I'm using the 21 lux a lot, and my spacing of 21-28 kept the 24 in the bag. If I miss the 24 length, I'll get the new 3.8 someday.

    Spoken like a man!
    I rather relish that 24 3.8 too . . . . . one day!
    Incidentally, I bought an M7 a month or so ago. It was 'old stock' i.e. VERY OLD STOCK - not as pretty as the one you show, but about the same price as a secondhand 24 elmarit, and still pretty pretty (if you see what I mean!).

    all the best
