    Leitz Wetzlar Summicron 50 f2

    I have somewhat of a mystery Summicron 50mm f2. The serial number is 2295439, it has 10 blades in the aperture and no little red dot or blob on the side of the lens. I've searched the web, looked it up on Ken Rockwells site and can't find any info. Any info on value and use would be appreciated. It's on an M6, shot a couple of rolls through it and really like the results.

    Hello,
    acc. to the serial no. your lens was made in 1968. I think the red dot is glued only and maybe it is fallen off.

    The red dot fell off my Elmar 50/2.8 M mount. If you look close you can see where it is supposed to go.

    Thanks all, I've checked out dagcamera.com and will be replacing the missing little red dot! I'm going to take a few shots of the M6 and a couple of lenses to post for sale soon. I also have been shooting a Voightlander R4A and really enjoy this little camera. Mostly I shoot medium format and large format, so I don't feel too bad parting with it.
