    Give Sean a call at Camera West. He sometimes has some hidden gems that don't show up on his website.

    Keep an eye out at Rangefinderforum. There were several recently, but they go quickly.

    I noticed new copies of this lens in black paint with scalloped focus ring on eBay from Kurland and a Hongkong dealer for about $2500. Serial no. over 4,000,000 and they advertise as current version, but is not asph. Could Leica be repackaging left over glass parts for that lens?

    Yeah I saw those, but I am not so ready to pay top dollars for the collectible level lens...

    I was tempted though but I am hoping to get regular one that makes same images for less dollar...

    Got mine from Tamarkin. Excellent condition and a good price. I am really learning to enjoy this lens. Frank

    Stan Tamarkin is great.

    and so is Camera West (got my E43 from them and it's a gem).
