    Feeler: RARE Leica Black Paint 50mm f/2 Summicron-M

    I have a "line" on not one but two Leica 50 cron black paint lenses - the one that came only in the MP Classic set (500 pieces). Rare as hen's teeth, these are in like-new condition with the black paint hood and black paint cap. There's no box because they came in the camera set.

    Before I put more work into this, I want to gauge interest level. It's likely these will sell for more than $6500 each, so let me know if this is on your "must have one" list and the price doesn't scare you away.

    Thanks,
    Brad

    Brad, just curious where you came up with that price? It became a must have lens until I bought one.

    ebay research on listings and actually completed sales

    There are collectors out there who simply must have one. I am very patient.

    Okay, based on new Summicron ASPH pricing, my black paint 50 is now offered at $7495.

    Wow! The whole MP Classic set for only $7K! Somebody should jump on this pronto! These are very rare, so once the set sells, my lens will still be even rarer since mine is 6-bit coded.

    If that APO lens was black paint I would sell my BP cron and buy the APO.

    Gorgeous stuff, jeez. And $7k for that set IS a good deal.

    Let me suggest that you buy that 7000$ set so that you can be the master of supply and demand and resell it for 15000$

    A Hong Kong dealer has had an unused set with the lens for sale at around $6,900 for some months. It's still available. check out fotopia.com
