    Leica Summicron-R lenses (35mm and 90mm f/2)

    Hi all,

    I picked these up locally as part of a trade.

    Disclaimer: I know NOTHING about Leica stuff. All the info below was gleaned through searches and some local experts.

    These were taken to Kenmore Camera here in Seattle and they were declared optically and mechanically sound. No fungus, no oil. Blades both have some wear, but they have firm click stops and operate correctly.

    Focusing is buttery smooth on both lenses.

    There is some finish wear, as shown in the two album below, but it is exaggerated by the bounce flash. There is some dust in both lenses, but again, I am confident none of the imperfections in these lenses would result in any actual IQ loss.

    I do not have a Leica-R adapter for my NEX, so I haven't tested them out (and DARE NOT as I've wanted a Leica for ages and will be tempted to keep them!)

    I have posted an obscene amount of pictures in the albums below. Please consult them.

    Summicron 35mm pics:

    PRICES:

    I would like to sell both together.

    Please notice the "obo"! I mean it! I'm going to wait a day or so to see if anybody will pick them both up or if I'm being bombarded with lowball offers.

    If you think my prices are insane, let me know! This is my best estimate for somewhat rare glass based on historical ebay searches.

    Price for 90mm: $550 obo

    35mm sent to auction:

    You sure you don't want to at least TRY that 35mm Summicron on your NEX? Seems like a great focal length...

    Ha! I actually love my Sigma 30mm, so this would be an absolute extravagance.

    I did fold and order the adapter, but for the 90mm, but I figure I can bundle it when or if (?) I sell
