$1,400.00 None Good
Description:

I hate to do this but after selling my M7 and thinking I could hang on to some of my lenses I realized that I'm not putting them onto my Fuji x system and opting instead for the Fuji glass. Add to that the fact that I have some bills that need to be paid and I now need to sell this wonderful workhorse.

There's not much to be said for this lens - it's well loved and used and travelled with me almost everywhere I went. Wonderful for film images and if you are looking at this particular version (just before Leica started producing the aspherical version of this lens) you probably know all there is to know about it.

Glass is clean without any scratches, scrapes or chips. The lens hood extends and retracts just fine. The aperture blades are clean and clicks are sharp. Focus is smooth and free - not stiff at all. I have had this lens and cared for it since I bought it used some 12 or so years ago. It'll be sad to see her go but I hope that whoever claims her will use her as she was meant to be used.

Fine Print:

  1. Price is the "net to me" price
  2. Shipping is at cost - I will provide options but you can determine what works for you
  3. Shipping will be via Canada Post / Postal Service
  4. Split on the PayPal fees

That is a very very good price for a very very good lens.
Also, the 3rd version e46 lux will close focus down to 0.7 meters vs the 1 meter of the earlier version of this lens!

I'll second that.  The 0.7 meters seems like a trifle untill you try it, and the tonality is great somewhere between a rigid and ASPH.

Seriously, that's a fantastic price for this fantastic lens. Gentle and classic rendering of the 60s while having better coating and 0.7m minimum focus distance, which is super handy IMHO. I'll never sell mine.
