    FS: Leica 28 Summicron, MINT, box, case, etc

    I am selling this MINT, like new 28 Summicron. It comes with original box, paperwork, leather case, hood, caps, etc. Just like a new one. These sell new at B&H for $3995 but will sell this one for $2500 shipped (USA only)

    Paypal, Check, MO. Paypal charges me 3% as you know so if you want to do paypal I will split it with you at 1.5%.

    This is probably one of the best lenses I have used, but I am soooo close to buying a 24 lux so this and one other lens has to go. I just wanted something a little wider and a little faster.

    Great lens for sure. Hate to see it leave your hands Steve. You use it so well.

    Good luck with the 24 lux if you get it. You might want to check with fotografz here on the forum. He had some issues with his, but it turns out it was processing.

    Hey Lloyd...the 24 Lux is a dream lens and in reality I may end up with a 24 Elmarit as to fund a 24 lux I would have to sell my 28 and 50. I did just get a 35 lux but not sure i want to dump my 50 Lux.

    Either way, this cron has to go as the 35 is too close to the 28.

    Wow! This is a heck of a deal for one of the best lenses out there for the M8. I'd buy it if I didn't already own one.

    This shouldn't last long.

    $2400 shipped and I may change my mind if this doesn't sell in the next day or two as I can not go lower. Final chance!

    I just bought this lens about two months ago after having owned an M8 for over a year. I should have just bought it at the outset. Because I shoot an M7 as well, my 35mm on the M7 and the 28mm on the M8 is just a perfect combo. I can pick up either camera and have the same FOV. Having said that, the 28 draws beautifully on B&W film, spectacular actually. FWIW, given the unique signature of this lens, you may regret selling it, especially if you want to use it on film. Just some random thoughts.

    Steve -- if you're leaving your Lux at perfect focus wide open, that may be another reason not to sell this....

    I was only selling this to fund a 24 Lux or 24 Elmarit. The 35..I may just keep it how it is because I LOVE IT wide open. I was hoping to have either a 24 lux or elmarit to go with the 35 as 28 is so close. Buts they are two totally different looks and I could find uses for each. David at Dale Photo has offered to take the 28 back in trade at what I paid for it so I may take him up on that offer if I go for the Lux. What a dilema!

    I can either have this

    24 Lux
    50 Lux
    75 Summarit

    or

    28 Cron
    35 Lux
    50 Lux
    75 Summarit

    or

    24 Elmarit
    35 Lux
    50 Lux
    75 Summarit

    I have some concerts lined up in June so I was hoping to grab the 24 Lux but if so that means the 28 and 35 have to go, two lens that are really spectacular. I just can not afford to have all of them.

    I'd say - you can always get a 24/25 Zeiss or CV lens for a respectable outlay . . . (I certainly love the Zeiss 25mm)

    Just this guy you know

    I'd go

    21 Lux
    28 Cron
    50 Lux
    75 Summarit

    Since the 35/1.4 is only good at one aperture, it's the dud out of the bunch.

    25 Zeiss or 28 Cron (if you can afford it after my revision )
    (wait for the new Luxes to go down in price a bit)

    35 Lux
    50 Lux
    75 Lux

    ooh, guess i kind of changed that last one, didn't i?

    Me I have the 24 35 50 and 75 luxes. the 50 till there is a full frame is last on my list of go to lenses. I would go cheap on a 75 and 50 and get the 24 and 35 luxes first. Also most reviews I have read think the 90 tele elmarit is a much better lens then the 75 or 90 summarits, it is also easy to find in the 600 dollar range. At 50 till there is a full frame go cheap wheater a nokton or a zeiss . 50 on the m8 is just a bit off for me. David

    I am withdrawing this for now. Decided to hang on to it as I cant afford the Lux right now anyway, and the 24 Elmarit I am not sure of as I love FAST glass.

    I will now have the 28, 35, 50 and 75 - if i sell anything it will be the 75 if and when I find a decent 75 Lux!
