    WTB : wide angle/tele lenses for M8

    Hi all

    I had really good luck with my 2 previous purchases here , Im looking for something thats a bit wider than my 50mm cron and also something with a longer reach, perhaps a 135mm Elmarit ( I see those regular;ly on ebay, so thats not too pressing) I think my Pentax KX is going to have my Helios 44 and 40, plus the FA 50/1.4, the Takumars ill sell off.

    So , does anyone have any bargain lenses ( I know leica and bargain arent normally used together!) ? if the external condition is dull or ratty I dont mind as long as the optics are decent. PM me if you have anything available and perhaps we can work something out

    Thanks a bunch

    Robert

    I have a Zeiss ZM 18 I'm selling and have a CV 21 f4 I might be willing to part with if you'd consider CV...

    CV 21 is quite nice, but has issues with color fringing on the M9. On the M8, it's a compact, charming lens... THE ZM 18 is fantastic...

    I have both the 18 and its finder, though I doubt a 18mm finder would be useful for you on the M8. For just the lens guess I'd be looking for $1,100. It's LNIB with original (included) hood. The CV I bought new a little over a year ago from Steve Gandy-the body and glass are in excellent condition, the cap's got a few scratches. Would come with a 28mm LTM>M adapter, and since I guess you wouldn't be needing the 21mm finder, so I'd say $300? Both are chrome and would include Paypal/shipping.
