was quite tempted but thought id research it a bit first.

You may find the Midland engraving, especially on the Hood, makes it quite desirable.

I don't know. The lens code is SOOZI if it is a 90mm/f2, and the Hood HMOOD. The hood was built-in later versions .

It is a fairly rare item in screw mount .Does it have its special front cap? Sure you will get further comments.

yes a front and rear cap, the cute hood, and a filter that's currently on the lens, probably to protect the front element from dust, the elements inside are nice and clean.

Lager describes the SOOZI-M and he says that it has a factory installed special screw to bayonet adapter. He also states that 'It appears that Leitz did not intend this adapter to be removed. Occasionally a lens is encountered where the adapter has been removed exposing a SOOZI (screw mount lens).This type lens is fitted with the raised red dot common to bayonet lenses'. 

You might wish to check this aspect of the lens. I might add that Lager devotes 8 pages of his lens book to different aspects and variants of this lens.

If you have a digital M and are thinking of buying the lens, I would recommend that you bring along an adapter and test it before purchase.

Pleased to notice the tripod connection which I'm missing on the Apo-Summicron 90mm.

Unscalloped Focus Knurl  (all the items with detachable hood are like this - indeed)

I think is an interesting collectible... I have been tempted several times to get one (Wetzlars are very rare... and I suspect some have even been faked in the writings...)

Here is my screw mount Canadian one. No red dot for M mount alignment, but has two red dots to align the hood. I always found it somewhat interesting that the reversed hood slid completely past the front of the lens, so that the cap actually mounts on the lens and not the hood   The correct cap (IQYGO) is a flatter matt grey matching the hood finish and deeper than expected.  Also the depth of field scale is red with a black triangle for contrast. From collecting  about 135 serial numbers, it would seem the first lot 1119001-100 was produced in Wetzlar. Some have said that only 12 screw mount and 26 mount were from this lot. From my numbers, it is more likely there were more , but maybe some were scrapped or not shipped for some reason.  Clearly, the Wetzlar lenses are quite rare. The second lot  1477001-099  appear to be all Canadian, and the final large lot of 1000, 1580001-999, are all Canadian. Again, some have said that a total of only 239 screw mounts were made, my data shows that production was closser to 50/50.  Demand would have been good for both type mounts in 1957/58. As with other lenses, why was production shifted to Canada,  Import duties, taxes, cost, available labor?

picked up the lens, he had two, one was cheaper because of scuff marks on the hood and cap, so i took that one -800$ less!

gorgeous rendering and incredibly sharp & Love the transition to the out of focus areas

      Hi everyone, I'm a new Leica user and bought an M6 Classic with a Leitz Summicron 2.0. The first roll came back blurry and I thought it was my shooting..then the second and third and so on. I sent my lens in to Keh (where I had gotten it) to be serviced and it came back with the same results. The images are generally overexposed when in very sunny conditions and all of them are very softly focused. I shot most of a roll at f16 and not one thing was in focus. I don't think it could be the lens, as it just came back from being properly adjusted so I'm wondering if it could be the body? I'm not sure what to do as I've spent my budget on this setup. I was going to send it in to get the VF upgrade because I was experiencing some flaring but that is not what is happening here. Any tips very much appreciated.

      Hello,
      I recently purchased a used 28mm Summicron from the Leica Store in Soho. My first Leica lens, so in my excitement I don't really notice a potential issue with the lens. The numbers on the aperture ring don't line up center with the white dot, they fall a little to the left. I don't think this is normal, but is it a problem? Photo attached
      Also, there's al little more travel beyond f2 and f16. Not much at all, but it doesn't hard stop at f2 or f16. Is this normal?
      Thanks for the help!

      Hallo zusammen! 
       
      Ich habe mir das Summicron 35  Asph. Gekauft und besitze das 35 mm Voigtländer Nokton. In meiner Vorstellung benutze ich das Voigtländer weiter, wenn es bewusst um das unperfekte geht, die Sonne im Gegenlicht, nicht ganz scharf etc. .. hat jemand beide Objektive und kann mir sagen, ob eines von beiden eher ein Schubladendasein fristet? 

      Oder allgemein die Erfahrung über die Nutzung beider Objektive  parallel.
       
      liebe Grüße und danke!

      I have just purchased a pair of goggles for my Summicron 50mm DR. When mounted and the lens set to close focusing range there is significant vertical misalignment of the range finder patch. 
      Does anyone have any experience of such an issue? Is this something that can be repaired, or should I return the goggles to the seller while I still can?
      Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!
