Product Description

Details

Extremely rare version of the Leica 35mm Summilux Steel Rim lens: Leica 35mm f1.4 Summilux M3 Black Steel Rim. Most steel rim lenses you see offered are the silver ones. A few are black ones with silver steel rim. But Leica also made the same lens with black steel rim. This lens with black steel rim was made with and without goggles. The offered lens is the version with goggles so it can be used on a Leica M3. The black steel rim version is extremely rare and hardly offered. Maybe a once in a lifetime opportunity. The lens shows some paint wear on the goggles and the focusing tab. Lens elements are clean. No haze, fog, scratches or cleaning marks. Interesting is the box with matching numbers. Comes with E41 filter as well. Indeed the price is high but how often do you find this lens? As said probably a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Please note that the Leica M3 Black Paint shown in the last 3 pictures is NOT included in the set!
