    SOLD Leica MATE - second version - UK/EU

    Hi there
    I have a Leica Tri-elmar 28-35-50 for sale - second version with the dof scales and the smaller 49mm filter.
    Boxed cased, front and rear caps and slimline leica UV filter (no lens hood - I don't think it needs one).

    It's not 6 bit coded, but I have coded it successfully using a marker kit (which would come with the lens).

    If anyone in the UK / EU is interested 2100 (what I paid for it). Then I'll put up pictures etc.

    Just this guy you know

    Wow, Jono, good luck with the sale. Someone will be very happy. Funny that you post this for sale now, as I just submitted a review of the lens to Steve Huff's site....I suspect it will go up in the next week or so!

    I just mirrored the review on my blog, until Steve gets it up, for any interested in the lens:

    Good luck with the sale!

    Re: FS Leica MATE - second version - UK/EU

    I sold mine a short while ago because it wasn't very interesting on the M8 due to the crop factor and because after putting on the IR filter I had to use the hood and it became a monster lens. (without the filter I never needed a hood in my film days because the front element in the first version retracts enough to shield it.)
    Shortly thereafter I got an M9 and realized after a few days that all the disadvantages had disappeared. I looked at some of the scanned slides I had taken with it in my film days and couldn't wait to try buying it back, which succeeded. And paying only a really tiny premium.
    Boy, am I glad he still had it and that I didn't hesitate.
    Ashwin's review only underlined it for me.
    If it's a good one................
    regards
    maurice

    Well, I still haven't finally decided, However, I'll keep properly in touch with everybody who has PM'd me. As I've taken the photos, then I may as well post them here.

    Apologies for being so neurotic!













    P.S. as far as I can see there are no marks or blemishes, the framelines work perfectly on both of my M9 bodies, and the hand coding is reporting the correct lens every time.

    I will be answering messages, but I'm working on site until Friday, and I will make a final decision then.

    Again, apologies for vacillating!

    I'm also interested, if a bit late. I live in Chicago.
