Leica Leitz Elmar 35mm 3.5cm F3.5 LTM Rangefinder lens in Very Good Condition
This item for sale is my Leica Elmar 3.5cm f3.5, a historical milestone for Leica and the very first Leica 35mm lens to start off the craze. Designed by Max Berek using a simple Tessar design, this Elmar provides high contrast and pretty ok centre sharpness. Combined with a Leica iiif (the best looking LTM) and a SBLOO viewfinder and you will have a classic set that fits around spaces, puts everyone in amazement and doesn't drain your bank account. However, you might want to be careful because a set of gear this good may feed the appetite of someone's desire of gears and eventually drain his/her account.
Don't ask me how I know this. Anyway, back to this lens. Condition wise, this lens is in very good shape showing no scratch, fungus or coating loss on the lens elements, not bad. The aperture blades are very clean with no grease on (sorry for not showing pictures of the iris as they are very tiny).
The lens body is tough, as expected for a Leica lens and the focusing ring is decently smooth.
