    FS Leica 75 f/1.4

    I bought this Canadian lux here on this board from Ashwin. It is a beauty with clean glass, built in hood, mechanically sound. There is some brassing on the focus ring as shown in photo. No box or pouch, but I will provide a generic lens case.
    I need to raise some funds, or I wouldn't be selling this one.
    $2700 shipped and paypal'd to your US location

    one of the finest lenses ever made -- Walter Mandler's own favourite design

    and you can't get much better linage than Ashwin and Cindy!

    a seriously stunning lens, probably the best optically that i own (otherwise, i would be snapping it up at this price).

    This lens was (is) a marvel for me. I can tell you for sure that this copy is a keeper. I would love to have it back someday, and am actually tempted, but my poor wallet wouldn't yet allow it. Great price, great lens, great seller. What more could one ask for? Best of luck, Cindy!

    as a lowly micro 4/3 user this beyond doubt is the finest lens I have ever shot with....must convince Cam to let me use it again.

    this is it on an E-p1... can't imagine how gorgeous it must be on an M9 or even an M8

    Thanks, everyone. I'm hoping my other gear sells and I can keep this one.

    A classy lady with a classic lens. If you love the Leica Summilux-R 1.4/80, then imagine the M version, Leica Summilux-M 1.4/75. One thing we must always be aware not to judge the cosmetic of the lens or where it was made, Canadian versus Germany. If the performance of the lens is memorable, then it is a keeper. Based on the past and current users of the lens one can tell this one is special.

    Best Wishes,
    -Son
