    WITHDRAWN: Zeiss 18mm f4 ZM black

    Selling my 18mm f4 Zeiss ZM - amazing wide angle lens for Leica Ms. This one is in perfect condition - includes the hood and both caps. If you would like to use the lens on an M8, I also have a custom Milich flange for it - coded as a WATE. I do not have a spare cut filter for it, but you can get a 58mm from B&H or use a 60 with a step-up ring - both work very well. If you'd like me to swap the flange before shipping, I can do that. $825 with the standard flange or $900 with the Milich flange as well - which is hard coded and the detents are marked so that the camera recognizes it as a WATE. Shipping is INCLUDED to the lower 48. I'll ship elsewhere at additional cost. This is a great lens - only selling because I got a great deal on a WATE!

    Here and some photos of the lens. The holiday snap was taken with this lens a couple of weeks ago - it has a fabulous field of view on the M8 - same as a 24mm on 35mm film. The coding and correction work really well on the M8... and it's amazingly sharp.

    I've decided to hang on to this lens - went and looked at the images I made with it and I can only find reasons to keep it!
