50mm Summicron f/2 issues

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Hello everyone.


I just purchased my first Leica yesterday. The body is a IIIg from 1957 and the lens is a 50mm Summicron f/2 from 1956. I paid $300 for the lens. However, upon looking at the lens (front and rear glass elements) with a flashlight in the dark, I noticed there was a little haze coming from inside the glass.


I'd like to get this lens cleaned. Anyone have a ballpark figure on how much a cleaning like this will cost?

$150 to 200 DAG camera repair. Golden Touch camera repair Sherry Krauter. She is very good.


Focal Point Lens will also clean, not plain focal point.


A collapsible is not my favorite lens. It needs cleaning if you see anything inside as it degrades the image starting with lower contrast and the lens is already low.


A Rigid is worth whatever it costs if you have one which you probably do not.


Next time inspect BEFORE purchase.
