    FS: Voigtlander Heliar 50mm/f2 M Mount 250 Jahre Model

    Black, collapsible M mount lens in Excellent+ condition. Light usage. Solidly-constructed- pleasing weight in the hand. Very smooth focusing, solid click stops on aperture and shutter. It has a unique signature- see example below. This model is out of production, and was originally sold only as part of the Voigtlander 250 Jahre kit.

    Steven at Cameraquest on this lens: "Popular Photography raves about the 50/2 Heliar!* Take a look at the December 2006 issue of Popular Photography, page 59.* Burt Keppler's article is essentially about the 50/2 Heliar.* Quoting* "The Heliar turned out to be incredibly good, comparable at all apertures to the 50mm f/2 Leica Summicron-M we'd tested in 1996."* Cosina did it with "Newly developed super high-index glass (that) reduces all aberrations."

    Roger Hicks writing about it in SHutterbug: "Old Heliars have a cult following, and probably this one will acquire one, too. It's not significantly better or worse than other lenses, because by the time you get to this level of quality, sharpness and contrast and resolving power can all be taken for granted. It is, however, different. All lenses have their own "signatures" and this one is more legible than usual."

    $450 shipped Priority Mail in COUS. Payment by Money order or check (must clear before shipping)- I am not on Paypal, as I don't buy/sell very often.
