    Leica R lens Sale, 19mm, 50mm, 28mm, 105-280mm, 180mm APO, 90mm

    I am now fully committed to Nikon and my R lenses are up for sale. Prices include PayPal fees and can be Canadian or American dollars, which ever is more convenient.

    28mm f2.8 Elmarit-R ROM, this is in VG to EX- condition, came to me reasonably cheap because the aperture lever for coupling to the R cameras was broken by the previous owner. It is now in a Leitax Nikon mount, $950 with the Leitax, $850 with the R mount if you want to use it on a Canon.

    19mm f2.8 Elmarit-R ROM, cla and ROM fitted by Leica about six years ago. Great image quality with super smooth focus. It comes with hood, front and rear caps, plus hood cap. Price $2,600.

    105-280mm f 4.2. This is in ex++ or better condition, but has light cleaning marks on the rear element. I have seen others listed with this problem, so it may be the coatings were soft on these lenses. It is an excellent performing lens and outperforms the Nikon 70-200mm VR II that I just purchased new. I will post a thread with the sample images showing that the Leica is sharp out to the corners on full frame. It comes with the caps, box, leather case, strap and paperwork. This will work with Leitax mounts or on a Canon with an adapter. Price $3,600.

    50mm f2 Summicron-R ROM. This lens is in mint minus to EX+++ condition and comes with box, leather case. Price $900.

    90mm Sumicron-R. This is an older three cam Canadian made Summicron. The exterior is probably VG condition, optics and mechanic in proper shape. I used to shoot basketball with this and preferred it over the 80mm Summilux because it has a smoother focus than Summilux. Price $500.

    180mm f3.4 APO. This is an older three cam version of the famous 180mm f3.4 APO. The exterior is in VG condition, with the optics and focus working properly. Price $700.

    Re: Leica R lens Sale, 19mm, 50mm, 28mm, 105-280mm, 180mm APO, 90mm

    Before anybody gets too excited about the price of the 28mm Elmarit-R, it is priced accordingly as these lenses typically got for $1500-$2000 in better condition. Here are some pictures of the lens. The second picture shows the little lever that is broken off and the little shroud that goes between the two screw holes was also missing when I got the lens. Neither of which matter for the Leitax conversion. For use on a R camera it will need a trip to Leica to get the broken part replaced or used in stopped down mode. The red dot is missing in this photo, but it now has one as I ordered one from Leitax with the mount. You can see it has one in the group photo of the lenses.





    Here is a shot from it using the D800E. I think it was f8 using the 100iso and sunny 16 rule; ie it was shot at about 1/500th on 100iso. The image is sharp over most of the frame and sharper than my 21-35mm at 28mm. At the very edges it gets soft, but if you read Ewin Puts description of the performance of this lens, it matches his description. The 21-35mm is better at the vert edge, but not as sharp as the Elamrit in the rest of the frame. It was suggested by a forum member to focus the 28mm at the edges using live view and then let DOF handle the middle of the frame.



    This is a crop from the center of the image.

    Sale pending on the 180mm.

    To save time for both parties, if I can't insure the package via mail for the selling price, I will not sell it to you. Most places the limits are $1000, but for some countries the limit is $100. I lost a $350 lens in the mail to one of these countries and it is a situation I do not want to deal with again.

    The couriers like FedEx will insure to most countries, but the shipping can be expensive compared to the value of the lens.

    To save further questions, I will only ship to PayPal verified addresses. If you live in Canada I can take interac money transfers and ship to your address. The address will still need to be verified by PayPal. We can do this by sending a small portion of the payment via PayPal.

    I have decided to keep a couple of these lenses until the new Leica M that accepts R lenses comes out. The 19mm and 105-280mm are no longer for sale.

    The 28mm and 50mm are still up for sale.

    The 50mm is still available.

    Keep in mind the 28mm is priced so cheaply because it is in VG or bargain condition. I have just checked it with a 6x loupe and there are a couple nicks/scratches on the front element and some dust/paint flecks inside between the elements, so I am withdrawing it from this listing.

    I still have the 50mm and have decide to sell the 19mm as well.

    The 28mm is still on Ebay, closing in a few days.

    Adding another one of my less used lenses. This one is in pretty beat shape, but the focus is smooth and it takes decent pictures. There are scratches on the front element shown in the third picture. The rear element looks pretty clean. It comes with a rear cap, but I don't think I have a front cap for it.

    My lenses are usually not this beat. I had a habit over the years of buying some of these lenses at a local dealer because I missed the pristine copy I sold years ago. I figured they were cheap enough, but in the end I never used them much. My introduction to the Leica SLR was an R4 that came with a mint 35mm Summicron-R, so when I saw this one at a dealer years ago I bought it.

    Asking price is $450 in Leica mount with Leica rear cap or $475 in a Rainbow Nikon F mount. Shipping is $25, paypal payment sent as goods so I can use the PayPal shipping tools. I don't have the rainbow mount yet, but one is on the way.








    Here it is on the D800E, shot wide open.

    A couple images from this mornings basketball game. I decided to shoot the whole game with the 35mm Summicron, as that used to be my favorite lens for basketball when shooting film. These were done on the D800E.

    The 105-280mm is off to Leica to have the rear element replaced and will be available in a month or so.

    The 35mm is on ebay, no reserve auction, along with some other R lenses.

    The 105-280mm is back from Leica Solms, with complete strip down and service, which included replacing the rear element which had cleaning marks. It now has a new test certificate for the service and this service has a one year warranty from Leica. The new price is $6,000, shipped world wide, payment by wire or bank draft.

    A couple members have asked to be notified when it came back from service and I have sent them PMs.

    These pictures are from prior to the service, but show the general cosmetic shape of the lens.

    Anyone buying from Rob can be assured he is forthright. I have purchased items from him including an R lens and have not been disappointed.

    True that. In fact Rob is enjoying the D800e I traded him for a noctilux with some other stuff/cash. It could have been complicated, he made it easy. Great guy to deal with.....Peter

    Thanks for the compliments. I try to be as careful about selling the lenses as I was about choosing them and buying them.

    Here is a shot from years ago with the 105-280mm on film. I was in a blind and the zoom came in handy.

    What sacrifices,if any,have you made by going with the Nikon? Or, do you feel the nikon telephotos and the 36 megabyte sensor are superior to your old DMR/R system?

    What brought me to Nikon was this year when my son started playing sports in Junior High. I shot the soccer with the DMR and 400mm and realized once he started indoor sports, the DMR was not up to the high ISO required in the dark gyms. The sale of my Noctilux brought the D800E in trade with a couple lenses and that set my choice for brand/body. I also liked it didn't have the anti-alias filter, like I was used to on my DMR.

    In a perfect world, I would have the D800E and a Leica S2 with lenses, but that is way over my budget.

    What about the r lenses? Couldn't you Leitax adapt them? I was thinking about purchasing your f2.8 400 mm if it didn't work out on the new M, I thought it would work on my 800e. Is the 400 mm r superior in resolution and rendering than a Nikon 2.8 400mm AF?

    The 400mm works well on the D800E. I posted some images from it in the Leica lens on anything but a Leica thread.

    I haven't owned the Nikon 400mm, but I hear it is a stellar performer. It is quite expensive. When I had a Canon system and the Canon 400mm f2.8 IS II, the Leica was sharper wide open, the Canon looked sharper stopped down, but the Leica had better detail in the shadows. The Canon may have only looked sharper because of the higher contrast.

    Yes, it is still available at the price listed on the first page. I can take some more pictures of it if you are a serious buyer at the listed price.
