    Post [FS] Leica Elmar-M 50mm f/2.8 (Black)

    Leica Elmar-M 50mm f/2.8 (Black)
    Serial #: 3936501

    Looking for $850, shipping to US included. I will ship International but buyer will have to cover shipping.

    This is the latest version. Lens has cosmetic wear: paint slightly worn in some areas and the lens cap. Optically no problems, no scratches, no cleaning marks. No mechanical problems: lens retracts and extends smoothly, aperture clicks are crisp. Comes with box, manual, unsigned warranty.

    This was my first Leica lens, the only one I could afford at the time. I later started using a 35mm Biogon, and I've found to use this focal length a lot more. I'm also seeking a faster 50mm, and will trade this lens + cash for a 50mm f/1.5 Sonnar. I wish I could keep this for travel, but it has to go.

    Here are some shots of the lens:










    Here is a shot with the lens:

    No, there is no wobble. It extends and retracts steadily. I will try to make a video later.

    Extremely interested in this lens. I have been looking for one.

    Question: is it 6-bit coded?

    I assume it works fine/is retractable on the M9 or M8?

    Does it come with a filter?

    It is not coded, and doesn't come with a filter. Sorry! I use an M6TTL and generally don't use filters.

    I don't have an M9 or M8, but it seems to be retractable on those bodies as well: http://www.kenrockwell.com/leica/50mm-f28-m.htm.
