    SOLD: Leica 75mm f1.4 Summilux

    I'm selling my Leica 75mm f1.4 Summilux lens for M cameras. The lens is in mint- condition with no marks or scratches on the barrel. Glass is perfect. This is the model with built-in hood. The lens works perfectly on my M8. The lens comes with front rear caps and original box. I'm asking $2650 for the lens plus paypal surcharge and shipping costs. I can take paypal (3-3.5% surcharge), bank check or money order. I will fully insure the lens and will not declare as gift or low value item. Thanks for looking.

    The only lens I believe made outside of Germany is the Nocti. Made in Canada for the Nocti but the 75 lux is German made. I am pretty sure about this

    nope. most of the 75 Luxes are Canadian except for the latest ones (there's another posting here for one of those -- at a much better price!). i'm not being a snot here -- just superstitious. i tried a German one and it worked beautifully on my R-D1, which is more finicky than the M8.

    No I thought only the Nocti thanks for correcting that. Some want a German made one and others don't care totally understand either way.

    perhaps -- but you do not seem to want to answer my question (here or in another forum where you also posted it).... was this lens made in Germany or Canada?

    thank you in advance.

    Good lens and a very good price to match!

    BTW, my own 75 Lux is German.

    Mr Nguyen may be having the same problem as I...........nowhere on my 75 Lux is there an identifier as to whether it was made in Germany or Canada. ditto for my 35 Cron IV pre-asph! Both these lenses, to my understanding, were made in both places. I am on vacation and my Leica handbook is at home so i can't go further at this point. I would guess that you can determine the country from the Serial number but I am not 100% sure. I have a friend in Leica N.J. who may be able to help. I'll let you know.

    The "where it's made" note is usually printed in very fine print stamped/embossed into the barrel of the lens, usually the underside near the lens mount.

    he did say it was made in Germany, but thank you for the info in the future.

    Terry -- in no way, shape, or form did i ever mean to disparage the glass made in Canada. my Canadian Luxes (35 and 50 pre) are perhaps my favourite! it is only this particular lens that i felt superstitious about, possibly because i still dreamt about the one i tried and didn't spring for.

    and thank you to the well-wishers. i'm quite excited and know exactly what i'm getting into my camera has started to grow on my therapist. he's dying to strip the "leather" off and reattach it -- i caught him with tweezers and super glue, salivating! i will simply explain that the new glass is my weight for the static exercises he's given me to do. much easier to grip than a barbell

    Actually, your therapist will likely commend the choice of a German made 75mm Summilux - the only change made to the lens during the transition was to make the mount 60 grams lighter than the previous versions.

    Enjoy it. I was recently able to pick one up and it's one of those lenses that really lives up to its high reputation!

    It's my guess that all the glass for the summilux 75 was made in Canada at the Now Raytheon facility...as well as the glass for the Noctilux f/1 and the 90mm APO... The 3rd version of the 75 assembled in Germany contains plastic parts not found in the previous two versions.
