    FS Leica Vario Elmarit R 28-90 3,800 GBP

    HI There
    Sadly, in my quest for a Monochrom, some other things must go, and lovely though this lens is, it's not used that much, so it must go. It's a rare lens, and although there are one or two around for sale, I think this is a good deal.

    it has a few very slight marks on the front of the sliding lens hood and on the rear baffle - otherwise it's mint - the pictures show up the marks much better than my eyes!

    Needless to say there are no dents or dings, and the glass is immaculate. It comes boxed with all paperwork.

    I'll accept a bank transfer or paypal (+3%) transport in the EU will be free of charge - 75 to the states - other countries at cost - of course any taxes liable are your responsibility

    Please note that the price is in GBP (pound sterling).















    All the best

    Hi, Jono,

    Which brand of Leica M to R adaptor is that between your 28-90 and your M?

    (I already have a 28-90 Vario-Elmarit-R or I'd have taken an interest in yours because it's such a superb lens at all focal lengths.)

    GLWYS,
    Pete.

    Hi Jono, wow, what a beautiful lens. I am excited to hear when you get a Monochrom back in your hands.

    HI Pete
    I hope you're well? and that you've booked your ticket to Wetzlar (I'll need you as a subject again .

    That's a Leica prototype I had with the M.
    As you say, it's a fantastic lens, and I'll be very sad to see it go, but if it gets me closer to that Monochrom then it'll be worthwhile!

    All the best

    Hi Ashwin
    Buy it!
    You know you need it

    If I manage the Monochrom it'll be for occasional use only - the M does lovely black and white, and for landscape shots the ability to change the channel mixer will count for more than the extra resolution . . . . but for those late night people shots there's nothing to touch the MM

    all the best

    Very well, thanks, Jono, and I hope you, Mrs S, et alia are likewise.

    Thanks for letting me know about the prototype adaptor.

    If you can stand peering at me through your viewfinder (you must be made of stern stuff!) then it would be an honour to be your, er, 'model' again.

    Yep, Wetzlar's all booked so see you there with your Monochrom.
    Pete.

    Hi There Pete
    I haven't booked anything yet - but I'm pretty sure we'll be going.

    I guess my challenge would be to win the daytime challenge with a snap of you're wonderful mug!

    all the best

    Stop Press


    Novoflex R to M adapter included FOC

    This works perfectly well with the camera - however, it brings up the wrong framelines, so it will not bring up the R lens selection (even if coded).

    HOWEVER


    If you select the lens manually as a 90mm (or anything else), then it works perfectly - no corrections needed even for the wide end - it also is no real disadvantage, as selecting the 28-90 in the R menu selection still only puts '28mm' into the exif information.

    All the Best

    Here is a little bump - before I decide to send it off to ebay.
