Product Description

Details

For sale is an extremely rare prototype lens: Leica 50mm f1.4 Summilux-M with E49 filter size. Definitely not many lenses have been made. Lens formula number is 448-003. There is another example in an European collection which has number 448-004 so probably only about 5 pieces of this lens were made. The lens is a prototype made in the Canadian factory. The lens probably has been made before the pre-ASPH lens came on the market. The pre-ASPH had a built in lens hood and a E46 filter size. The lens offered doesn't have a built in lens hood and has a E49 filter size. Very interesting. Lens elements are clean. No haze, fog, scratches or cleaning marks. No problems. Great lens and a really must have for a Leica collector. Don't be too late.
