    This is a Sun Sola 9cm F4 for Leica thread mount. This chrome beauty was made in Japan and is seemingly an Elmar copy, although I think it performs better! A beautiful and collectible lens. Good shape with clean, clear glass.

    Price: $100 plus insured shipping

    Just out of interest, is this lens a tessar type or a triplet?

    If you don't know how to tell you can try the instructions here:

    A 9cm tessar almost always gives excellent result.

    Not sure - I'll look into to it. I think the Elmar is a triplet, but being long (narrow field) and fairly slow it gives nice results.
