    WTT: Leica 50mm black paint Summicron for new APO-Summicron

    Many people covet the very rare modern Leica 50mm Black Paint Summicron-M with matching black paint slotted lens hood and black paint lens cap (only available with the MP Classic set). I'd like to trade my mint example of this lens (I had it 6-bit coded) for the new Leica 50mm APO-Summicron-M ASPH.

    You may think this trade is a good value or not a good value, but I'd appreciate it if your comments in this thread did not go in that direction. If you don't have the APO or you think the value is wrong, please skip right along to other posts.

    On the other hand, if you have always wanted the black paint cron, let's talk.

    Thank you.

    I had a similar thought about my black paint cron. Everything done right IMO re: the BP cron.

    Brad, Good luck!

    Is the AA Summicron 50 available for sale anywhere?

    One question Brad: what is the weight of this lens? I assume it must be close to the "50 Jahre" edition (240 gr?).
    Leica MP, Leica M9P, Summilux 35/1.4 FLE, Summilux 50/1.4 ASPH

    Yes, it's almost identical to the 50 Jahre - they're both solid brass bodies.
