    FS: R lenses

    I have one more R lens to sell. It is the now discontinued 105-280 which is truly an outstanding lens. This one is in excellent condition with only minor cosmetic scratches to show its history. Glass and blades are perfect with no dust or oil on the blades and no fungus.

    Looking to get $2500 for this beauty.

    Reason to sell is that I have become enamored with the primes in this area, namely the 90 cron, 180 APO Elmarit and the magnificent 280 4.0 APO. So this one now sits in my excess glass shelf on the way to a new home.

    If interested give me a PM or call at (970) 231-8110 and don;t forget to look at the other lenses in the Rob Stevens thread.

    I have had the 105-280mm for about ten years. I am always amazed by the performance of it. Since I also shot it in my film days, I know it is sharp across the frame and will be a great lens on the R10.

    Woody,

    That lens looks very familiar...

    I still can't fathom why Leica discontinued it. Great balance, superior image quality, and just a great lens.

    I am with you on the prime kick, though. The 90 APO and 180 Elmarit-APO are a great travel pair. Throw in a 2x APO and you've got the range pretty well covered.

    BTW to Woody and Peter --- I have done a few high dollar deals with Peter and they were flawless. Also, Peter, I know Woody personally and you have no worries that way either. Best to both of you in putting it together

    Cheers,

    Thanks Jack

    by the way I have tried to re post my other lenses in the B&S Forum but it won't let me post the images because they are already posted in the sticky Rob Stevens thread. Could you delete those two responses and then i will post correctly in the Buy and Sell Forum?

    Thanks

    Woody

    Sounds like we had a sale here. Our first one. Peter did you get the 35-70 2.8. That is one sweet lens

    Here is the Leica Product Information sheet for the 35-70/2.8 I found on the web. I uploaded it so you could save it. Here is a link:

    Victor,

    I still can't believe what a small world it is! We had to travel halfway around the world on the same day in the same exact spot to miss each other by a few seconds. Crazy.

    I'll give you a call and we can catch up.
