    Jamriman: there are a few of these over on the auction site. They have gotten very expensive. I know because I sold one when I wanted to buy a M9 and regretted it immediately and recently bought one again. Good luck.

    Thanks! Yes. I hate the auction site though. The prices are not realistic.

    That's my biggest fear, selling mine, and then wanting to rebuy.

    And to admit it, I have already done that once with my Tri-Elmar, but fortunately found my current lens at what I sold for.

    Anyway, best of luck finding one, they are convenient lenses to use when the light is good and you don't need faster than f4 for DOF reasons.

    See what I mean?

    I'm trying to live by the saying "If it says "Leica", it isn't for sale", even though I've got a bunch of school bills coming up, and, my son went through a recent growth spurt and his pants are too short.

    For the record, I never sold mine. It got stolen, along with all my leica lenses back in 08 I think. Bad experience. Some of you might remember. Thanks.
