Plaubel Makina W67 for Leica glass


New member
Up for trade is my Plaubel Makina W67.
After using this camera for the last year I have come to the conclusion that I prefer the 80mm lens of my Plaubel 670 to this cameras 55mm.

I have put at least one roll of film through it for the last year, and everything is working perfectly. The meter is spot on, the rangefinder is perfect, the bellows are light-tight, the scissors are strong, and the camera is in beautiful condition. I would rate as a strong 8.5/10. The only thing I would mention as a flaw is the ridged, rubber ring on the focus knob has been replaced by an o-ring.

I am looking for the following lenses, in order of preference...
1. Pre-ASPH Summilux 35mm--V1 or V2 is fine, but no goggles, please.
2. Super-Elmar 21mm ASPH
3. Elmarit 21mm ASPH
4. Summilux 75mm
5. Elmar 24mm ASPH
6. Summicron 28mm
7. Elmarit 24mm ASPH
8. Super Elmar 18mm ASPH

There is some pretty expensive glass listed here, but working W67s go for around $2500-2800 these days.

Feel free to PM me with other trade offers.
