    FS: Leica MP 0.72 Black Paint and Lenses (AUS)

    This is a preliminary notice that the following is for sale. I will finalise pricing and pictures and update this thread accordingly over the next couple of days. In the meantime if you have any interest in any of the items, please don't hesitate to PM.

    1. Leica MP 0.72 Black Paint analogue rangefinder. Condition is good - well cared for but with some brassing. No box or papers.

    2. Leica Elmarit M 1:2.8/21mm Asph + Leica Viewfinder + Lens hood and caps + OEM Lens case, box and papers (Black), excellent condition

    3. Leitz Canada Summicron M 35mm with caps (this is the version with the small focus lever) (Black), good condition for age

    4. Leitz Canada Tele-Elmarit M 90mm with rear cap (Black), good condition for age

    Pricing on some of this gear is difficult, so any pointers would be gratefully accepted.

    OK, so pricing is difficult on these items, here's my take so far. If you think I've got it wrong, please flick me a PM with your views and the evidence.

    Photos to follow.

    1. Leica MP 0.72 Black Paint analogue rangefinder. Condition is good - well cared for but with some brassing. No box or papers. USD$pending

    2. Leica Elmarit M 1:2.8/21mm Asph + Leica Viewfinder + Lens hood and caps + OEM Lens case, box and papers (Black), excellent condition. From serial number a 1998 build. USD$2,250

    3. Leitz Canada Summicron M 35mm with caps (this is the version with the small focus lever - the 6 element version) (Black), good condition for age. From the serial number it is a 1976 lens. USD$1,400 (There seems to be a variation in price from around $1,300 to over $2,000 with a cluster around $1,600-1,800 for these lenses. I've struck a low mid-point.)

    4. Leitz Canada Tele-Elmarit M 90mm with rear cap (Black), good condition for age. From the serial number this is a 1977 build. This is a little gem of a portrait lens and a bit of a steal. There are a few reviews of this lens around and they are generally complimentary. It's a bit of a favourite of mine because of its size, weight and reach. USD$450

    All prices net to me. All prices sensibly negotiable.

    Photos - All photos are in Flickr Albums

    35mm Summicron

    21mm Elmarit Asph

    90mm Tele Elmarit

    Leica Film MP

    I'm the world's worst product photographer!!

    A couple of notes. The MP has some barely visible marks on the top plate between the word Leica and the hot shoe. They don't show in the photo but they are small dull marks. They may polish out, I haven't tried. The MP also has tape on the ends to prevent scratching from the strap. That tape has been there since new and shows in the photos. The bottom plate is perfect. There is some brassing on the camera, however it's very limited, no scratches or dings.

    The lenses all have UV filters on them and have had since I owned them. They will come with the filters. I can see no signs of fungus or haze in the lenses. The 35 'cron has some colour change in the anodising on the focus and aperture rings. This happened with older anodising and it shows as a slight bronze tint.

    The 21mm comes with the Leica 21mm viewfinder pictured.

    If sold at the asking price the MP comes with a 1.25 diopter if you want it. Otherwise that is also for sale.

    Please ask any questions here or by PM.

    Pricing for the MP:

    1. Leica MP 0.72 Black Paint analogue rangefinder. Condition is good - well cared for but with some brassing. No box or papers. USD$3500

    Pricing is net to me and does not include shipping.

    With all of the pricing please feel quite free to correct me if you think I've made errors or to make an offer. I won't be offended by sensible offers.

    As always with my sales the goal is to strike the right balance between a return for my investment and getting these into the hands of someone else who will enjoy them and use them.

    No, it is still available. Apologies for any confusion, that post was about pricing pending only.

    I've had a couple of kind offers of trades...This sale is about downsizing! I really don't want a trade. If you had a SK 120 in perfect condition in Alpa mount I might think about it, or perhaps something that I might be encouraged to consider in the Fuji GFX line up.

    Otherwise no trades please!

    All items still available.

    I've always wanted an MP. I regret the day I sold my Leica gear, I truly loved all of it. If I had the money I'd send you an offer, but alas...

    Good luck with the sale!
