    Leica 50mm Summilux Pre-ASPH LTM Chrome Japan Only!

    I really want to buy MikeL's 35mm Summilux before he sends it over to ebay. So, I'm hoping someone might want to buy this lens.

    In 1999 or 2000, Leica made a special LTM edition of the Pre-ASPH Summilux for Japan only. There were supposedly 500 of them made, but they're not numbered.

    My lens is chrome. I have the lens, box, leather case, and caps.
    I had the lens CLA'd by Leica last year and will include the receipt. They also replaced the LTM adapter with a new one for $178! It is included, too.
    This lens shows minor signs of use, I would rate it at 8/10. The glass is perfect.

    If you want to own the finest LTM lens ever made, this is it. In my humble opinion, of course. I'm only selling it because I just bought an ASPH Summilux and it's just a *teeny* bit sharper.

    $2800 paypaled and shipped in the USA.

    Thanks, guys! I've had a nibble, but so far no takers.

    Any serious offers will be considered. I really want that 35 Summilux!

    It looks like MikeL sold his Summilux, so I am open to trades or a straight sale.

    I am interested in a...

    35mm Summilux ASPH
    75 Summilux
    90 Apo Summicron

    I am looking for user lenses, not shelf queens.
