    WTT: Leica M240 + M/R lenses - Will trade for Large Format Digital Lenses

    All of the Leica M equipment is in great shape and well cared for. It is my personal system...so not used for work and always protected. M240 includes Leica EVF, RRS L bracket & extra battery. I bought it new from a local dealer and have all packaging.

    All Lenses are 6 Bit - most were purchased new and include original boxes & leather cases. 21 Lux, 35 Lux FLE, 50 Lux ASPH, 28 2.8 ASPH, 21 3.4 SEM ASPH, 90 2.5 Summarit w/hood. I have a Leica SL and need to keep a few M lenses, so I don't want to part with all of them, but let me know what you are interested in and hopefully we can work out a trade. If anyone wants more info on the camera or a particular lens, just let me know and I will shoot photos for you.

    I also have 8-10 nice Leica R lenses (28 2.8 VII, 70-180 APO, 105-280, 28-90, 100 2.8 APO, 80 1.4, 50 2.0, etc), and would consider parting with a few of those if that makes the deal work. I would consider selling the Leica M gear outright if desired, but I have not taken the step of pricing each item. Would be open to offers/negotiation and I will put a price on any particular item if needed.

    I am looking for a few recent, HIGH QUALITY, large format digital lenses. Trying to get started with a view camera system and it's becoming apparent that good digital lenses are crazy expensive...similar to Leica glass! I'm looking for focal lengths in the 35-120 range, nothing super wide or long.

    Thanks,

    Josh

    Hey Josh, curious about the need for "digital" large format glass? I've used a crap load of LF glass and man, Rodenstock APO Sironar's are some serious glass.

    Agreed, some of those older lenses are great. But I don't think there is any doubt that the newer designs are better performers when used with a high res digital sensor.
