    WTB: Tele-Elmarit-M 90 - German made

    Hello -

    I'm interested in buying a German made Tele-Elmarit-M "thin" 90mm lens with excellent glass. Why German made? No particularly good reason but it's what I'm set on ... Please let me know if you have one you're willing to sell.

    Thanks.

    Good luck with your search. Even the Canadian ones are hard to find.

    . . . . . you may have better luck if you post your WTB in the 'for sale'/'want to buy' thread' . . . . http://forum.getdpi.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=29

    Thanks. There are a number of Canadian ones for sale on eBay right now but I'm irrationally stuck on getting a German one.

    just make sure you buy one with a clean rear element - no white spots

    It's a Canadian design, and the only reason any were manufactured in Germany is that Leica sold the plant to Raytheon. The German ones certainly aren't better.
