    Leica M2-R, 35mm Crons, 50mm Elmar-M, Summitar, 35mm Summaron, etc.

    Hello All,

    Due to a move towards other interests at this time, I am listing/selling all of my Leica gear. All of this gear took a long time to acquire, but I hope someone else can enjoy them now. Having owned a lot of gear over the years, many of the items listed are my favorites that have remained.

    If anyone wanted to discuss buying all of the equipment as a lot, please contact me. This is a solid collection to shoot with while all items will only keep appreciating in value.

    Please contact for additional photos of all items. When Private Messaging, please include your e-mail so I can send photos directly.

    Due to the number of items, please PM or e-mail directly and refrain from posting below. I will update ad as items are sold.

    1) Leica M2-R Body- Rare camera, as less than 2,000 were ever made. This camera was fully CLA'd by Sherry Krauter on 02/07/2013. Full documentation and paperwork from Golden Touch will be provided. A fantastic camera to shoot with that will only keep appreciating in value. I will also include a Luigi brown leather next strap as well. Price: $2275.00

    2) Leica 35mm F/2 Summicron Pre-ASPH Version IV- Near perfect example of a late model "Bokeh King" that was Made In Germany. Focus and aperture are smooth and glass is extremely clean. A much smaller and lighter 35mm when compared to the ASPH version. Optically it is a legend. A great lens in great condition. Comes with rear cap, #12526 Hood, and front Hood Cap. Also have a #12504 vented metal hood for it that can be discussed. Price: $2075.00

    3) Leica 35mm F/2 Summicron ASPH- Includes original Leica front and rear caps, Leica leather case, and original Leica #12526 hood. Glass is extremely clean and aperture is perfect. Some minor cosmetic marks on the barrel but optically and mechanically without fault. Sherry Krauter checked over the lens recently (04/09/2013) and indicated “No need for service, Checked to Leica tolerances.” A copy of this paperwork will be included in the sale. A fantastic 35mm lens! Price: $2375.00

    4) Leica 50mm F/2.8 Elmar-M- Chrome Version that is now discontinued. Based on the classic 4-element Tessar design, but with modern updates and coatings. As sharp as the modern 50mm Summicron, but with a more classic look. One of the most "3-d" of the modern lenses. Extremely clean, and comes with original hood and front and rear caps. Price: $1200.00

    5) Leica 50mm F/2 Summitar (SM/LTM)- I am truly reluctant about selling this, as this is the nicest and cleanest Summitar I have ever seen. These are near impossible to find in this condition, and the glass is as good as the day it left the factory. Aperture and focus are smooth. This is a later coated (1950) version with the better 10-blade traditional aperture. Many, including Sherry Krauter, feel this is Leica's single best lens of all time. Very sharp in the center with a classic look. I feel it is the most "3-d" producing lens I have ever used. Nothing beats it for black and white. If I had a Monochrom this would be the only lens I would use. Due to the condition, I am asking a high price; but that reflects the difficulty in ever finding another coated, near perfect example, with the 10-blade aperture. I have some accessory items (barn-door hood, aftermarket SHNOO adapter for 39mm filters, LTM-M Adapter, etc) that can be discussed. Lens on it's own will come with metal rear and original front Leica cap. Price: $675.00

    6) Leica 35mm F/3.5 Summaron- LTM Screw Mount A36 Version- Includes plastic rear cap and original Chrome Leica front cap. Also will include rare (and in mint condition) "FOOKH" hood as well as an original "E.Leitz, N.Y. SL" clip on filter. Super well made and built like a tank. Extremely clean front and rear elements with great coatings. Some very minor haze internally; but that is almost unavoidable in a lens of this vintage. Focus and aperture are smooth with infinity lock working perfectly. Classic rendering and with 10 aperture blades it will produce beautiful bokeh. A super small, compact lens that you can take anywhere. I also have a LTM-M adapter that can be purchased separately. Price: $550.00

    7) Leica 28mm F/2.8 Elmarit- Rare 1964 9-Element, Version One with black paint infinity lock. Includes Leica #12501 Hood, Leica #14102P front cap, Leica Serie VII UVa filter, Leica Serie VII Green filter, Leica Serie VII Yellow filter, and generic deep rear cap. This lens is the black paint “equivalent” to the 35mm and 50mm Summicrons of the day. This particular lens has the earlier rare red paint on barrel and a black paint infinity lock. Glass is extremely clean. Lens was serviced by Sherry Krauter on 02/05/2013. A copy of the receipt will be included. A sharp and classic rendering lens due to the symmetrical design. Simply beautiful in black and white. A great lens to shoot with or collect that is only going to keep consistently appreciating in value. Price: $2800.00

    8) Canon 135mm F/4 Serenar- Screw Mount Lens- Glass is very clean and aperture moving smoothly. I may be able to find a LTM-M adapter to be sold separately if needed. Price: $100.00

    9) Leica #12524 35mm Summicron Hood- Same hood as the #12526 hood, except the #12524 didn't come with a front cap. Clean condition, will fit most 35mm Summicrons. Price: $80.00

    10) Leica "SOOPD" Summitar Barn Door Hood- Solid user condition. Later version with spring clips. Price: $60.00

    11) Leica "SBOOI" 5cm (50mm) Finder- Super clean condition with beautiful glass. One of the best made. Price: $175.00

    12) Leica Bakelite Case for 5cm Elmar and 5cm Summitar. Clean Condition. Price: 40.00

    13) Geiss-Kontakt Synchronozer for Leica. In original case. Not exactly sure what this is, but I believe it is from LTM cameras. (Can send pictures) Price: $25.00

    I believe my prices are in the ballpark for the market. However, I am willing to discuss reasonable offers, and would be inclined to move even more on multiple items..(M2-R with a lens, etc)

    Please contact for additional photos of all items. When Private Messaging, please include your e-mail so I can send photos directly.

    Again, due to the number of items, please PM or e-mail directly and refrain from posting below. I will update ad as items are sold.

    Thank you,
    -Brett-

    Do you still have the 12504 shade? Any dents? What kind of condition? Very interested.
