    FS: Leica 21mm M pre-asph $695 obo

    Offered here is a 21mm late pre-aspherical model that unfortunately exhibits what is known as "Schneideritis" which is a bubbling of the paint next to the optical element. Seen mostly on Schneider view lenses therefore the term. I had Leica estimate a repair on this at over $700 (two years ago). I also sent pics to DAG - here is what he replied:

    "Charles,

    looks like the tiny white dots are within the black paint that surounds the inner sides of the front lens elements due to moisture that was originally in the paint & now has surfaced, optically there's nothing wrong & is also very difficult to repaint these elements so I'd leave it the way it is,

    regards,

    Don
    DAG"

    Obviously it affects resale value so I am selling at basement price. This is not a focal length I use on M7 or M8 so no reason to hang onto (I have 18, 24, 28 as well). So make me an offer. Comes with hood, caps, and B&W UV filter (not UV/IR). No coding. Otherwise in mint condition. Perfect for those wanting to get into a wide Leica "cheap."

    Also 21mm finder in leather case. Some light scuffs on the top surface otherwise in excellent plus condition. $225 obo.

    Paypal is fine - no extra charge. Shipping $15 on lens, $5 on finder (for CONUS).

    Questions please ask. I can also take some pics with the lens on the M8 and send jpegs, tiffs or RAW (I also have some b&w film samples I can scan and send as well).
