Should I buy a copy of the Summicron-S 100mm?

Well that was easy.

Despite the lack of paperwork, a quick call to Leica UK has established that the Summicron-S lens I have was originally sold via Leica Japan in 2015 and in 2017 it had the AF motor replaced, also via Lecia Japan. It's a well travelled lens but the AF motor issue has been addressed so any noise I hear is what it was designed to do.

I think this makes it a very cheap copy of the lens. Yes it has the hood from a wide angle lens (it's the same as the 45mm and wider lenses) and there's no box but it was only £3099.

Good - as long as it is sharp enough 😎
