    R 15 2.8 sold US$1900

    Hi. If I'd known these could sell for a lesser price, well...Glass perfect, lens body not quite so..Thought I'd show this so others would know how little they can go for. Hope the link works.

    The photos appear to be of the older 15/3.5.

    Jan is correct. It was a foreign buyer who overpaid for that particular lens.

    Really? I thought they were worth mid $2k range or a bit more. What is a reasonable price range for that lens in good, but not immaculate condition?

    My experience is that an excellent+ 15 3.5 will sell for about $3K and the 15 2.8 (if you can find one) about $5500.

    Okay, that is about what I thought.

    But the auction was for a 2.8 version. The buyer would have the right to not buy the item if it wasn't as described (15mm f2.8 Elmarit-R).

    I think you are right. I think if glass is good then (my opinion, correct or not) the price is probably ok for 3.5 version. I got myself a 105-280 just over a year ago, MINT. Within the first month put the tiniest scratch on it. A bit disappointed, but its meant to be used, take photos, so a half beat up thing like this 15 3.5 would save all that worry if that makes any sense.
