    FS: Black Voigtlander 35mm/f1.2 LNIB.

    For sale is a mint condition Voigtlander 35mm/f1.2 black lens. The lens had been modified for Leica M8 and it works well on my M8. I am the second owner, and the lens is in perfect condition. It includes the box, the front and rear lens cap, and also the lens.

    Price is $750 shipped with FedEx Ground within US with insurance and pay by PayPal gift options. If you want pay by regular PayPal, please add 3%.

    Please send me a PM if you are interested.

    Thanks.

    What is exactly modified, and who did that modification (this lens should work on an M8 out of the box) ?

    Hi Ron,

    I may not be describing it exactly, but on early runs of this lens, the shroud around the rear element was found to hit and interfere with focusing on the M8/M9, whereby the focusing would get stiff on one end of the focusing scale. I think, but not sure it was as you approched infinity. A quick modification by cutting away a piece of this shroud eqasily solved this issue and lenses could be modified by the importer/distributor. All current production of this lens though has a redisigned /modified shroud.

    I think my explanation above is a bit crude but thats the essence of it.

    To Dave,

    Thanks for your detailed explanation.

    To Ron,

    Dave already explained the modified. And I think it is from the Voigtlander dealer cameraquest did this modification or maybe the Voigtlander change the design. I have no idea about that. And this lens can work on any M8 out of the box. I use it on my M8 without any problem.

    Hi,

    What happened was when the M8 was first released and those who already owned the CV 35mm f1.2 lens, reported the stiff focusing I described above. Eventually CameraQuest announced that anyone owning this lens (which was initially purchased through CamerQuest) could send in their lens to have it modified for free. This purchasing the lens elsewhere could have it done for a fee. After a time, all future production of this lens came directly from Cosina with the modification and now of course works perfectly with the M8 and M9. Great lens!

    Haha. I followed your post for a while. It is a great lens, and I like it very much. The reason I sell this lens is I need get some funds to support my another project. If I have money in the future, I will purchase this lens again.

    Thanks for your great post.

    These just went up to $979 at CQ, so this is more than 20% off the cheapest new price around and you don't have to worry about getting a lens that requires calibration etc. Someone should snap this up!

    I have given up the Summilux ASPH for this lens cause it's a stunner. The new price just went up $100 and the seller stayed the same. Those hesitating are crazy!
