Glossy Paint Summaron Goggles - Rare?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I recently purchased an M3 with a goggled 35mm f/3.5 Summaron. Unlike many other Summarons I've been able to find online, however, the paint job on the goggles is a glossy black paint, rather than the crackled paint that's ubiquitous online. I've been told this is a relatively uncommon version of this lens - the question is, how uncommon? Is this something that is collectible or significantly adds to the lens value? I haven't been able to find any copies of the glossy paint version that have sold online, so I would love your perspectives on whether this is a collector's item of any sort, or if it's something I shouldn't worry about using/possibly getting dinged up in the process. I've attached a photo below.

Hello welcome to the forum
Not really rare but may be rare "on line" as you said
If you bought it for using, use it, and take care about, as for the M3 camera
enjoy it it is a very good lens with warm rendering
