    Is my price too high or is there just a lack of interest?

    Since you asked:

    I would recommend that you be a bit patient. You are offering an excellent package; someone will read it and buy the items. It just takes time.

    It's a niche lens, you might be a little high on it. I know you are trying to recoup much of your investment, but that isn't always possible. I think you'd get a hit somewhere around $400.00

    Your price seems OK to me, and I think people should assume you're taking offers (I always assume that!).

    I find it a very interesting lens, and have been wanting one, but I'm also considering the purchase of a used film M, so it's hard for me to jump at the moment (so I'll probably end up with neither ).

    Also consider that there's another almost identical item offered in the forum right now, including both finders and a filter (interesting coincidence).

    I have been busy and forgot about trying to sell this lens. How about a price reduction to $395.

    OK, time to move this. I don't have a M-mount camera so I have no use for this lens. Price reduced to $350 or best serious offer.

    This is a great price for this package and it's a great lens. There's really no need for rangefinder coupling on this since the depth of field is so huge.

    Thank you for the comment Brad. This lens was the first M lens I received and it came a few days before I got the M8. I was shocked how small it is (I was used to the Canon L lenses)

    I agree with you John. You really filled a need with a quality product.

    That's a really good price!
    I sold mine a month ago, without adapter and just the 15mm finder, for exactly the same price.

    what does not rangefinder coupled mean? It won't focus in the rangefinder window?

    Exactly. You guestimate the distance.
    Due to the focal length that is absolutely no problem.
