    Fake Summilux or what?

    Link to the lens:
    http://www.cafr.ebay.ca/itm/28076715...84.m1436.l2648

    I read about this lens that there is no <<35>> graved on the barrel for the lens made in Canada.

    <<Black aluminum anodized, Canada, no "35" on barrel, new formula from #2166702
    Black, Canada, no "35" on barrel, no infinity lock
    Black, engraved "35" on barrel>>.

    http://www.cameraquest.com/mlenses.htm

    In this case, we have <<35>> on the barrel of a lens made in Canada.

    I don't know what to think.

    Any advise appreciated

    I don't understand what your concern is with this lens.

    My black made in Canada 35mm Summicron certainly has a "35" engraved on the barrel....

    I'd worry much more about the scratches on the front *and* back elements of the lens!!!!

    looks to me like it may have some fungus
    I just want to feel nostalgic like I used to.
