    FS: M-Mount Canon 50mm F0.95 RF Dream Lens

    I screwed up my other listed by trying to change pictures, so I am re-posting this lens...

    This is a very nice Canon Dream lens that has been converted to Leica M-Mount. It is an original RF lens with the stock focusing tab, rather than the non-RF TV Lens. The lens has great if not perfect glass, the only thing I can see is there is a small bit of dust or possibly a tiny bubble in the front element; obviously this will not have any effect on images at all. It has very good paint and focus and aperture controls are smooth as they should be. However there is a small bit of scraped paint on one side of the lens, affecting the filter ring, aperture and focus rings; this is visible in the pictures. The filter ring is slightly deformed in this area, but the lens will take a filter, I have used one numerous times with an M8.

    The lens focuses properly on my M3, M9, and my previous M8. The conversion is not the neatest around, but it serves the purpose. Included with the lens is a generic rear cap and a DIY front slip on cap that works great. There is a small amount of oil on the aperture blades which does not affect operation. I really like this lens, but there is some other gear I would like to buy and I already have a nice 1.2 50mm. Please see the example shots attached taken with an M3 and Kodak UC400 Film below.

    The final prices I see on the auction site for converted RF lenses is a little less than $3000. I am asking $2150 net to me - for GetDPI members. Shipping must be paid by the buyer and must be via a trackable, insured carrier. I do want to sell this fast, so I will entertain reasonable offers. It is on the auction site, but I will cancel that listing if it sells here. Please ask any questions before you buy, I am not going to be in a position to provide a refund on this.

    The example shots should show that this is a very well performing lens - all these shots are are at 0.95. Of course stopped down this lens is the match of about any lens out there.

    NOTE - the M3 is NOT INCLUDED in this sale!

    Thanks

    Good price for one of these in that condition and with that IQ. It's not a lens for everybody but if you like it, this is a deal.
