    FS: CV 12 for Leica M

    Up for sale is my mint+ CV12 f/5.6 ASPH lens with brass Millich m-mount, like new in box. I am the original owner. 12mm on the M9, 16mm on M8. Hyperfocal focusing, not rangefinder coupled. This is a true gem. The lens is a Leica thread-mount so it can be used on LTM cameras as well as M-mount cameras (with included adapter).

    It is the widest production super wide ever made for 35, a rectilinear lens, not a fish eye! The phenomenal 121 degree field of view Aspherical 12 has 10 lens elements in 8 groups, f/stops from 5.6 to 22 with half click stops, and weighs only 6 1/2 oz with lens shade and front cap. While not rangefinder coupled (there is no need for it in a lens this wide), you have easy fast focusing from 12" to infinity with the focusing lever.

    Free shipping in CONUS. $580 paypal fees included.

    Here's a field of view comparison to see how nice the 12mm can be to have...

    35mm, 24mm, 15mm, 12mm
    ignore the sharpness - I resized them.
