    Leica 28mm f/2.8 Elmarit-M – ($1100 OBO)

    - S/N 3293505, version 3, Made in Canada
    - Smooth focus, very slight play in aperture ring but clicks nicely; typical minor wear from usage
    - Off brand front and rear caps
    - Reason for selling: One of two initial lenses acquired after I got my M4-P (other was 50mm Summicron). Quickly figured out that 28mm and my glasses don’t work out to well. Ended up getting a 50mm and a 35mm.

    More pictures available upon request. Price includes shipping CONUS and PayPal fees.

    I have this lens and it is one that imparts a very realistic dimensional quality to the pictures, some call it a 3D look. I think it is a rendition that no other 28mm lens, save the V4 version, imparts. Bob.

    I have this lens - it's great and $850 is an insane price - GLWS (have you tried RFF?)

    Thanks. Yup, I had it on RFF back in December. There was some interest, but nothing came of it. I'll probably try there again but then it's off to the auction site.
