    FS: Leica 60 Macro, Adapter

    Have for sale the following:

    1. Leica 60/2.8 Macro 1st version (27xxxxx), 3cam.

    Includes rear cap, 60-62mm step-up ring and 62mm generic front cap. 1st or second version, 1 cam or ROM, the optical formula remained unchanged. Lens is a former copy-stand queen from a local shop and never saw the great outdoors. Lens can be converted for use on Nikon via US$90 www.leitax.com kit.

    The Bad News: Barrel has some paint fade on focus ring, etc and aperture ring has JUST a hair of a wiggle in it - both from lots of handling, but aperture stops down smoothly and with authority, no issues. Suckers are built like tanks and it shows.

    The Good News: Optically pristine. No cleaning marks, no discernible dust, fungus, other nasties. Blades dry. Focus smooth but well damped.

    Lens is a Series VIII hood and filter-style. In the real world (vs. Leica's sometimes unique filter/hood mounts), lens does not a hood. Front element is so recessed it's pointless to use one. Also, rather than use a convoluted Series XYZ filter holder, a 60mm filter mounts right to the front barrel (thankfully). However, since 60mm filters aren't cheap and don't grow on trees, I use and will include a 60-62mm step-up ring and 62mm generic front cap.

    Performance?: No need to describe here, as most folks have pretty good idea how great a barn-burner this baby is. For those who may not, MTF and analysis is downloadable here: http://us.leica-camera.com/photograp...nses/3810.html.

    Why selling?: Too many lenses, too few lights ;>

    Price: US$475 includes PP and insured Xpress Post (aka EMS) shipping from Canada within NA. Offshore is fine, buyer pays actual cost. Will discount 3% for PP if EMT used.


    2. HappypageHK custom-encoded "60mm F2.8" Leica R - EoS adapter.

    Have discounted from lens as with leitax Leica-Nikon kits now avail not everyone wants an EoS adapter. Comes with rear cap.

    US$65 shipped BY NORMAL POST and PP'd in NA. Will obviously negotiate on price if bought with lens due to combined shipping, etc.

    Emails PLEASE. Pics will follow ASAP, but if you look at my feedback on FM (Conner999), you'll find I describe things accurately and pack them like I'd like to receive them.

    All Pms and emails responded to, thanks. Tweaking prices a little as well:

    1. 60 Macro now US$450 shipped, etc
    2. Adapter now US$60 shipped, will negotiate re: combine package

    For anyone looking for a nice and uber-sharp entry to Leica land on Canon or a Nikon, this baby will perform like few others - especially for the $$ involved. 1:1 magnification with any 30mm extension tube.

    As an aside, will discuss trade re: a clean, clear and smooth copy of the older manual aperture, non-D version (e.g. M645) of the Mamiya 120/4 Macro
