    Ricoh GXR-M ... another beautiful, classic lens!

    My partner gifted me with a beautiful condition Leitz Hektor 135mm f/4.5 that will work nicely on both the Ricoh GXR-M and Leica M4-2. I think it's about 1958-1959 manufacture, close to the end of the Hektor production.

    It came without caps or hood ... I ordered an original hood and lens cap for it via Ebay and had a spare back cap. :-)

    A very pretty lens, and beautifully finished:


    photo made with Olympus E-1 + ZD 35mm Macro

    I particularly like the fact that it has a tripod mount.

    Can't wait to make some photos with it!

    - just checked the serial number -

    1960 production .. last year of the Hektor far as I can tell.
