Hi,

Are there any lens gurus who can tell me if this Elmar is genuine?

Thank you.

I am no expert but I THINK the groove edging should be crisscrossed on the aperture ring and the lever that locks the lens is incorrect and normally has a cone shape knob on the top. This is a general guide and there may be exceptions, maybe a lens guru can clarify this.

Iopena,

Elmar came with differents flavors, so over years they had some differences, but something to learn with genuine ones to compare.

Have a look at Wiki Elmar II

 

Elmar I
