    Lens closet cleaning

    So I've been going through my drawers and realized I have far too much gear I don't use and a few new lenses I want, so it's time to sell some old ones off. (Specifically I'm looking for a Zeiss ZM 28 f2.8, and would consider a partial trade for anything below) All prices include insured shipping and PayPal fees.

    1) Leica Elmarit 28mm f2.8 type 3: A great lens in great condition. Only a few signs of wear, and only cosmetically. Glass is excellent-no scratches and only a bit of dust. Aperture clicks are smart and focus is smooth. Only caveat is it's missing its hood. Comes with 49mm skylight filter. $950

    2) Leica Summicron 50mm f2 type 4: Tab focus, great cosmetics, excellent glass. A few specks of dust in the elements but no scratches at all. Aperture clicks hard into place, but having never had a type IV before, I think that's just this lens-doesn't affect usability and might even just be a sign that this lens hasn't been used much-I'm not sure. A stellar performer, I just prefer the more classic look of my collapsible cron. Comes with 12585 hood in great condition, worth at least $100 by itself. $1150

    3) Zeiss ZM 18mm f4: LNIB, comes with all papers and packing materials and original hood. The only thing that is not LN about this lens is there are just a couple specks of dust in the elements-nothing significant at all, but given that it's otherwise LN, I don't want to surprise anyone. Comes with a 58mm Heliopan UV filter and Zeiss 18mm finder with box, just a few abrasions on its feet from mounting in accessory shoe. $1400

    (If you'd rather buy the lens or finder separately, I may be able to work that out. I already have offers for the finder, so I'd primarily entertain offers for the lens separately)

    That 28mm is a great deal. I have that from my father's old kit, and I also have the 28mm summicron...the only difference I can tell is that the summicron is a stop faster and a tiny bit smaller.
