THIS ADVERT HAS EXPIRED!
I am selling here a rare beauty: the 35/2 Summicron-M pre-asph silver chromed. The lens has been bought from RedDot Cameras in the UK (Invoice included) and subsequently sent to Leica for 6-bit coding, tightening of the aperture detents and general inspection (Invoice included). It feels, operates and looks pristine. There isn't a single paint blemish, or any other imperfections on this lens. It comes with the original package, with all the papers. The buyer gets: 1) The lens 2) 12524 rectangular lens hood (perfect) 3) Leather lens keeper 4) Warranty card 5) The RedDot Cameras invoice 6) The Leica repair invoice& certificate The price includes EU-wide shipping by UPS Standard. For other shipping options or destinations extra charges will apply.

Does anyone know what exactly the 6-bit coding is doing in case of a Leica M-D 262? The camera records in DNG only and there is no way of manually assigning a lens profile in-camera. Is assigning a lens-profile in camera (like with a typ 240) the same as assigning it in Adobe LR afterwards? Also, I was trying a Zeiss ZM 18mm but the sides shaded terribly and color shifted to blue/magenta. The same happened with a Voigtlander 15mm lens. I am wondering what the results will be with a 1980's uncoded Leitz Elmarit 28mm. I kind of liked the rendering of the Elmarit on the M6 in the days, but will it shift the color like the Zeiss/Voigtlander? Of course the 28 is not as wide as the 18 or 15mm's. Anyone experience with this?
I'm a new M9 user, and want to get my old lenses coded where possible. Most of them are not on Leica's list even if I could pay the $300+ each. I was getting ready to contact JML when I heard he had passed. The only other options I know of are Don Goldberg but I believe he sent the flanges to JML; and Will van Manen in the Netherlands. His current price (for a 28 M-Rokkor, milling and adjusting frame line lug if necessary) Is €120 plus return shipping (to USA) is €157 via UPS, less if to UPS access point but still a lot. I've ordered a bunch of pre-milled LTM adapters for my screwmount lenses, and flange adapters for the M lenses that have the right screw patterns. That leaves out some early M lenses that don't have flange adapters available, including in my case ones that don't have detachable flanges, but where the bayonet is much thicker and is more integral with the mount (no screws on the mating surface, no obvious way to detach): 50mm collapsible Summicron 35mm original Summilux 135mm Elmar I've tried the template and sharpie method. It worked fine on day 1, but on day 2 the marks had worn off. Is there a US machinist milling 6-bit pits at the moment?
