    FS: Avenon Wide 28/3.5 LTM

    Excellent condition. Included is a Voigtlander Leica Screw Mount to Leica M bayonet adapter with rear M Lens Cap - TYPE II 28/90.

    $475 - price includes PayPal fees and US Priority shipping with insurance. Sorry, U.S. only please.

    A few more images here. Please take a look at the last two photos at that link, there is some very minor paint loss in a couple areas, but we're talking millimeters.



    This is a tiny lens, more or less half the height of a double-A/AA battery.







    This is the 10 aperture blade version. During the time I was searching for the lens, it was the only one I found with 10 blades. Even the information here doesn't mention a 10-blade version, and the ones listed on eBay now are all 6-blade versions.

    What camera did you use to shoot the photos above -- esp. the one of the dog? Is that on the 5N or an M9?

    Ahh - too late …

    Ashwin, should you get tired of the lens, let me know ;-)
    I am searching for a nice sample of this one for a while - love my 21 Avenon and would like to try the 28mm out as well.
    This one looks like a beauty in terms of contrast, sharpness and also built quality. Classic lens!

    Hi Dirk, will do. It'll be great to pick this up locally. I'll send along photos on one of the threads here or at RFF to show it off on the MM...

    By the way, the seller, kuujinbo, is a really great guy. I look forward to meeting up!

    Thanks Ashwin, really looking forward to some shots on the Mono - maybe in a wedding shoot?
    This lens is a beauty - really well made in black paint and has a beautiful natural light fall off (which I love, while others not).

    Congrats to kuujinbo for the sale - may I ask, if the lens is complete in it's set with leather box and finder + caps and hood or is it lens only in this case?

    Btw - I too have never seen a 10 blade version myself ;-)

    Thanks - it's lens only with front/rear (I think generic) caps. The person I bought it from wasn't sure about the caps when I asked, but having looked at a bunch on the big auction site, that's my best guess. There isn't that much information on the Internet on this one...

    Congrats on the lens Ashwin. I guess I was too late in reading the response. If you ever drive up here to Vancouver maybe you can show me the lens

    Sorry about that. When you asked if the samples were shot with a M9 I thought that's the camera you were planning to use it with and decided to pass when I confirmed the shots were with a NEX-5N, which does a little better with the color shift on wide/semi-wide lenses.

    No need to be sorry kuujinbo. I missed the response from being too busy in general (read: my 2-yr old).

    I just got an NEX-6 actually. Saving up for an M9/M9P still. I just loved how this lens rendered in "3D" on your 5N!
