    WTB: Leica Mount 35mm Lens

    I've got an old Nikkor 35mm f/2.5 but would like to get something with a bit more contrast. Looking for a Voigtlander, Leitz or Canon. Budget is around 400.

    Are you using a lens hood and choosing your film/exposure/development for contrast?

    finding a lens hood for this particular lens would be darn near impossible. I've yet to find a filter. It's just an old design which has inherent limitations.

    You should check out the seller "Heavystar" on eBay. He has all different sizes of hoods. I bought a bunch in 40.5mm. He has other sizes, as well.

    Also, check out the classifieds on rangefinderforum.com.

    I use a Voigtlander 35/2.5 Pancake II but it is M mount, did you need screw mount? You can get a 35/2.5 Color Skopar in LTM for $299 or the M mount for $329. Both have excellent contrast and use easy to find 39mm filters.

    Oh, BTW check out www.cameraquest.com, free shipping on orders over $200 in the US and Stephen Gandy ships fast. The classifieds on RFF are a good spot to look as well, I have bought and sold a lot of equipment there too.

    I'm using it on an M2 so an M mount would be fine.

    Oh and I've been eying the 1.4 Noktons and those are looking quite tempting, anyone have one kicking about?
