This remarkable zoom lens produced for the Leica R series of cameras is generally recognised as having the same image quality as the famous prime lenses (review here). An unusual feature is the Macro setting which gives 1:2.8 reproduction. Condition is Exc ++ at least. The glass is unmarked, the lens body is unmarked and movements are as smooth as silk, only the lens hood has a couple of tiny paint marks on the rim of no consequence. It is boxed, with end caps and is fitted with a B&W UV-Haze MRC filter. I have also included a rubber lens hood because the Leica fitted metal lens hood is of little use except at wide angle.
Om L mount the lens ROM will be recognised with an R to L adaptor. Since the lens is manual focus and manual aperture setting it can also be used on a wide range of camera bodies with a simple dumb adaptor. I have been using it on Sony A7M2 and A6500 very satisfactorily.
Used retail is typically about £600.
Asking price with filter, extra hood and UK postage £510
