    FS: Leitz 5cm (50mm) Elmar f/2.8 Chrome (brass) with 15 blades!

    Leitz 5cm (50mm) Elmar f/2.8 Chrome (brass) with 15 blades!

    $675

    This superb example of the Leitz 5cm f/2.8 Elmar collapsible lens was made in 1958 - the first year of production of this M-bayonet mount lens. It features the foot-scale in black lettering. There are no marks on the body, slight dust inside and slight haze to one side, but imperceptible in photos. Comes with the Leica chrome cap and black end cap. This lens works on any digital M camera even fully collapsed. It does not touch the internals. You'll be hard-pressed to find a cleaner example of this nearly 60 year old lens. Price is paypal gift and includes shipping in the lower-48 USA.
