    SOLD- Chrome Voigtlander 35 mm f/1.2 Nokton

    Hi all,
    This is a test of the waters....I have, for sale, a Chrome Mint Voigtlander 35 mm f/1.2 Nokton lens for sale. It comes with both front and rear caps, along with a hood. I am the original owner, sold it a couple years back, and reacquired it recently to test it out.

    For those of you don't know, this lens is a collector, as ONLY 300 copies were ever manufactured. That makes it very rare in collectors circles, even in the Leica world, and the lens is currently underpriced for a collector. Further, most enthusiasts consider this lens, along with the 28 mm f/3.5 screw mount, to be the 2 best lenses in CV's arsenal, and this version is outstanding.

    As I own the 35 lux FLE, it's hard for me to justify owning both lenses. Kristian Dowling (our own "Leicashot"), a very talented pro, considers this lens to be on par with the 35 lux asph lenses and likes its rendering better. For samples of this lenses IQ, you should refer to his pics and the Nokton thread over at the Leica forum at GetDPI.

    The lens is comes with front and rear caps only (I once had the box, but it's lost and gone forever). The lens itself is in mint, and there's only some minor cosmetic wear on the cap.

    PRICE (includes shipping) is $1350. CONUS sale only. I only accept personal or bank checks. No paypal (sorry)....

    I will post pics later if there's interest....


    Here's a link to Cameraquest's info page about this lens (scroll to the bottom for info on the chrome version). I originally purchased the lens from Cameraquest.

    Everette, do you like chrome lenses?

    Your Nokton, Aswin, will go nicely with his chrome summicron.

    Sorry guys I wish I am ATM. I am just a single guy who does not have many other bad habits and got the Leica bug. Leicashot and the rest of you have more toys and been doing this much longer more experience and better photographer.

    But I really enjoy this site and make some new friends. Mikel, Chrome, black Titanium paint are all nice lens for different outfits and occasions. I do believe the chrome Leicas lens are a wee bit better built or heavier. I was lusting over the IIIG but decided I better get into more systems I already am.

    Anyone with a MINT 35mm 8 element in chrome willing to sell around $2500? Prices in ebay are just too high for me.

    Got the lens today and took some shots. Nice creamy bokeh for a 35mm and not harsh contrast. Good for a wide portrait view with surrounding backdrop blurred out.

    Thank Ashwin!!

    Condition is very nice too. Continue the quest for nice lens.
