Leica 28mm Anniversary, M2-R, M4, M2, IIIF, Rapidwinder...


Hello All,

I have many more photos of each item, please feel free to e-mail me if seriously interested.

I can consider possible lens trades, but mostly looking to free up cash. I am located in the NYC area for any face-to-face deals.

1) RARE Leica 28mm F/2.8 Elmarit. (Serial #31898XX, Version III, E49, "Leica 1913-1983" Anniversary Lens) Original anniversary box, caps, and #12536 hood. Also includes Leica #13328 E49 UVa filter. Rarer version and the only Leica 28mm ever designed by Walter Mandler. Beautiful classic rendering and very sharp. Super clean and extremely hard to find in this version and condition. Price: $1650.00

2) Leica M2-R in mint condition. (Serial #12497XX) Original plastic with matching serial number. "L" seal intact. A Beauty and rare to find in this kind of condition. Price: $2950.00

3) Leica M2- Button Rewind. Purchased as a backup but never used. Clean condition, but everything a little stiff from sitting. Clean and bright viewfinder. Will need a cleaning, lube, and adjustment (CLA) before use. "L" seal intact and I will include a Leica M2 box. These "no self-timer" versions are great shooters, and fit very comfortably in your hands. Price: $675.00

4) Leica M4- Definitely a "user" cosmetically, but well loved. Working great with rangefinder and speeds accurate. Just used at a wedding about a month ago, so I know everything is good on it. Super Smooth. Ready to be used everyday! Price: $925.00

5) Leica IIIF with 50mm F/3.5 Elmar and accessories. Both from 1952. Everything working well and the lens is SUPER clean. Also includes rare Leica FISON Hood and SBOOI 50mm Finder which are hard to find and expensive accessories. Original Leica front cap and I have some original Leica SM metal canisters as well. I also have the original Leica ever-ready case for this as well. Will not separate package. Great complete and fun setup. Price: Accepting Offers and/or trades.

6) Black Rapidwinder- Great condition and working perfectly. Only a couple of minor marks in the finish. Matches black paint cameras perfectly (pictured on my BP MP.) However looks great on matt cameras as well (M7, M6, etc.) New these are now $600. Price: <<<SOLD>>>

Please message with any questions and/or requests for additional pictures.

As for lens trades I would mostly be interested in 50mm or 35mm, but please let me know what you many have.

Thank you-
