    FS: Leica M4 Black Chrome / 35/2 Summicron IV / 21/4 Super-Angulon

    21/4 Super Angulon (M and LTM version)

    This lens is absolutely tiny. It's like a collapsed Elmar on the camera. + Takes 39mm filters, yay!

    Only about 1400 ever made, bit of a rarity obviously. Comes with a 21mm Leica viewfinder as well.

    Lens is in very good condition. Glass looks immaculate, I see zero haze, dust, separation, scratches, fungus on glass. Focus and aperture like butter.

    The mount of the lens comes off (held in by a tiny screw on the side, see Picture #3, under where it says MADE IN GERMANY), so it turns into a LTM lens, so you can use it on a Leica IIIc just the same as a Leica M3, if you wish.

    Comes with rear and front lens cap, both black as you can see, and also a yellow filter. I believe it's yellow anyway :-)

    Price: $1250 Net..

    35/2 Summicron IV


    Lens surfaces mint, zero haze, fungus, separation, coating damage, polishing marks as far as I can see. Optically EXC to Mint. Very minor dust as with all non-weather sealed lenses. Aperture shifts perfectly, focus is very good, sometimes a very slight gritty feel on the infinity mark, if you feel around closely.

    Straight and aligned lens hood.

    Comes with it's square lens hood, a black Leica UV filter, and lens pouch and rear lens cap.

    $1600 Net to me.

    Leica M4 Original Black Chrome


    From 1974 one of a batch of 600. Nice condition, all shutter speeds are accurate and working correctly. Minimal paint and body wear, see pictures. Viewfinder is very nice and clean, no dust or dirt, no separation, rangefinder patch aligned clean and contrasty. I only have a 35mm and a 21mm lens, but the 35mm framelines show up perfectly when mounted, and the framelines preview lever changes framelines with zero issues, smooth and accurate. Frame advance very smooth. Shutter dial moves easily with little resistance. Frame-counter works as it should of course. Self-timer works great, just like it should. I'll see if I can find two black plugs for the sockets at the back.

    Comes with a Leica body cap. And a Leica ever-ready carry case. (See post below)

    Sorry about the big ugly fingerprint on the viewfinder on the first picture.

    $2000 net to me.

    I believe that's not BP, should be black chrome version.

    judging from the photos, this black M4 is often called "black chrome" version instead of black enamel paint version? Can you clarify please?

    Yes, it is Black on chrome judging from the serial, since it is a black painted I wrote "black paint" I am not sure if "black paint" is only referred to black on brass? Either way, Leica painted this Leica black when they sold it, so I wrote black paint. I am not sure if it is referred to as something else.

    I seeeee. Odd, since they are both black, but OK, I changed the title, and I hope the price reflected it was Chrome :-) Sorry for the confusion. You learn something new everyday!


    I forgot to add this Leica ever-ready case with the Leica M4 Black Chrome ad.
