    Are you sure you have the right amount of zeros in your price?

    Only 100 or so of these have been made, so for the right collector....

    Apparently 55 (per Alpa), 10 in the first edition and 45 in the second edition like this one with the ring around the lens.

    Of course no collector would really want one of these without the associated Alpa/Linhof 44x66mm film back that goes with the 38mm Biogon. As it happens, I have one (really) so I'm up for offers to help with a packaged sale

    Remember the burglary at ALPA some years ago ? ? ?
    Two of their ALPA / BIOGONS were stolen .
    As far as I understood , one of each serie . So that is two lenses less in collectors hands .

    You must be a real enthusiastic collector and a rich man , if you go for that lens .
    But if you look at Leica Shop Home and
    WestLicht Photographica Auction: Willkommen and see what collectors prices can be achieved for vintage and rare LEICA M cameras , then the asked price seems to be rather realistic . But then , this forum might be the wrong place to offer that ALPA BIOGON lens .

    Just a lens! I can't find the 6644 film back for it. If anyone want to sell it to me, PM me. I don't want to keep it as collection, just using it for pictures. Sell it or not, I am so hesitated.
