The glass looks very nice & clean upon first inspection, with just some slight internal dust. But, a close inspection with a flashlight shows what may be the very beginning stages of a light haze or fungus.
We are not sure - but right now, it does not seem to effect the images. This lens is great for anyone with a Leica R system camera; ideal for macro work, portraits, and shallow depth of field shots. This lens is made to work specifiaclly with the bellows included! Leitz Leica-R Bellows for Leica R Macro Lens.This impressively built bellows system from Leica offers photographer with Leica R cameras the ability to closely and precisely fine focus macro shots. Cosmetically, this bellows shows light sign of use & seems to be in good working condition. The focusing knob seems to loosen when the bellows is fully extended, but we think that this may simply be part of the original design. This will be a great addition to any Leica R system SLR collection!
