    Black Paint 28 or 35?

    I'd like to add a black painted 28 or 35mm lens to my .58 ala carte BP M7. Seems it deserves it! Were there any 28mm lens in BP--35 I think I saw somewhere. What should I expect to pay for one or both of these lenses?

    OK, just for lusting purposes, anyone got some pics!!

    Firstly good luck finding them. I'd say the BP 35 may be easier to find than a BP 28. Look at $3500+ I would guess

    The 'common' black paint lenses knocking about are 35/F2 ASPH, 50/F1.4 and the 90/F2 ASPH. There's also the LHSA 50 ASPH but I can't think of a modern 28mm that has been produced in BP.

    Ian has it right on the most common recent black paint lenses. I believe there was also a black paint 50mm Summicron sold in sets along with the MP Classic model.

    I saw a 35 BP on the leica forum offered today.

    I did pick up a BP Millennium 35/2 ASPH a short while back. What a heavy lens that is.
