    In excellent cosmetic and functional condition, a coated Leica Summitar 5cm f/2 collapsible lens, with Leica metal front cap. Serial number 911517 puts it from 1951. It's the six-bladed aperture model. The glass has a bit of dust but no scratches, cleaning marks or pinholes. The metal is spotless and unblemished. The lens extends and collapses easily, with the silky smoothness Leica is known for. The aperture and focusing rings move smoothly as well. Aperture blades are clean and dry. Even the lens cap looks new!

    You simply won't find a nicer lens of this type. $400 plus shipping. I take Paypal and USPS money orders (United States Post Office ONLY!) and will ship USPS Priority Mail promptly, with insurance and delivery confirmation. Please ask if you have questions and I can take more photos as desired. Thanks!

    Several inquiries but no one's said they'd take it yet.

    I would not have sold mine for that price.
