    Leica APO Extender R 2x

    Price: $450.00
    Payment method: Visa, Mastercard, Discover, Amex, Chase Quickpay, Postal MO.
    Item condition: 9+ Shows little or no signs of wear.
    Shipping instructions: I'll cover USPS priority in the Conus if you use a no fee payment method.

    I have a very nice Leica APO Extender R 2x for sale. The glass is perfect, the cosmetic condition nearly so as well. The rear cap has a few marks but the front is perfect. What's in the pics is what's included (plus caps), that is the side panel from the original box with the original price in Deutsch Marks! (about $1000). Owners manual on the left. These are usable on a far greater variety of lenses than the 1.4x APO. The results with my 280 have been... stunning!

    Just to be clear, this is a 3rd cam (only) model is it?

    I'm not familiar with the various iterations of cams, can only say the manufacture date was during 1993 based on the serial #. This would be the most modern version mechanically speaking. Leica will add rom contacts if you're willing to wait long enough and pay the price

    Edit: Pretty good article here explaining the various "cams"
    Leica R-Mount - One / Two / Three-Cam / ROM

    So yes, the newer stuff won't be usable on older Leica SLR bodies i.e. SL2's etc.

    Seems I'm incorrect on the above statement, this will work just fine on older bodies i.e. SL/2
