    hmm, looks like it has an aluminum body, which is a sure sign that it is from the 50s onward, could be early jupiter 3 lens prototype if it is not a knock-off.

    That's interesting. 35-60-90 sounds like an almost ideal lens set for a nice old III series Leica. :smile:

    yep, but at $900? You can get a coated Jupiter 3 for a lot less!

    I know. I just like the idea of the 60mm lens, I've been thinking of getting another screwmount Leica lately.
