    WTT: 75 summilux 1.4 6 bit

    Transitioning my core lenses to modern designs. My copy of the 75 summilux 1.4 is excellent. It's the newer version with pull-out hood and it is factory 6-bit coded. It comes with rear cap and hood cap. Cosmetically I would rate it as Exc-. There is some very minor paint loss on the focus ring and aperture ring. Glass is superb. Probably the most poetic lens I have ever used, although I have never owned a noctilux. Interested in trade plus cash for these asph lenses (body condition not a priority):

    - 75 cron 2
    - 90 cron 2
    - 50 lux 1.4
    - 35 lux 1.4

    Will post some pics later. Any questions, please ask!

    Hi Bobby I have both the 75 lux and the 90 cron from f 3.5 on except for the angle of view yu would not see a difference between the two. I would hesitate to get rid of this lens for the cron. If you ever need a 1.4 for a small tele do not let go.

    Surprised to hear that stopped down to f4 the 75 lux and 75/90 cron's would produce identical contrast and color. The main reason for trading was to achieve a modern, stronger look at all apertures. Thanks dsellig.

    If possible, please do not sell it.
