Fake Summilux or what?
Link to the lens:
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>>.
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!!!! :(
Can you be more specific?
looks to me like it may have some fungus
yes , all leicas are fake or expensive. I think Freud can explain your question.
