I don't believe this lens or the camera was used hardly at all. They came inside a Red Leica Presentation Case. I think the original owner may have kept them more for display. This was a photographers estate sale. He had many nice cameras and lenses, most in really good condition.
The Lens is a 50mm F3.5 Elmar. It is in excellent condition. It focuses well, the aperture ring turns smoothly, Iris Blades open and close, and the glass looks clean and clear. There is no fungus or scratches, probably some internal dust.
The Lens extends and collapses easily. Cosmetically, the chrome is bright and clean with no dings, scratches or smudges. The last 2 photos are just to show the lens on the Rangefinder Camera. Please see photos for condition details and ask questions if you have any.
