    WTB: Really hard to find: Leica 35mm Summicron Anthracite

    Okay, I know it's a 1-in-a-million shot, but I am looking to buy a Leica 35mm Summicron Anthracite lens that was made in 2003 at the same time as the 50th Anniversary MP for the Japan market. There were 600 made and if you have one of these lenses, I would appreciate the chance to buy it from you.

    I have a "normal" 35mm Summicron, so I don't need another. I am just looking for the Anthracite. By the way, this is not the hammertone LHSA finish, it's gray paint.

    Thanks.
    -Brad

    Can't help you Brad, but I think the lens was chrome with an anthracite colored hood.

    "The LEICA SUMMICRON-M 35 mm f/2 ASPH. in a silver chrome finish is the ideal complement to the MP Anthracite. The set includes an anthracite lens hood and a silver chrome metal lens cap. These lenses are limited to a production run of 400." ...from Leica website: http://220.133.217.187/A002/005/LEIC...Anthracite.htm

    You are correct. The lens body was a different shape from the standard one and the hood was anthracite.
