On sale is the legendary Leica M2 in good working condition. This has the rare quick load system installed which works like the later M cameras M4, M6 etc. Leica Elmar 50mm f/2.8 is an incredible lens. This lens has superb, all-metal build quality. It has gorgeous bokeh, superb sharpness and incredible colour rendering.It is collapsible making it extremely compact. Please read more details below. Rangefinder: bright frame lines and clear rangefinder patch. However, it has a cloudy finder towards the left side, this is more of an inconvenience than an issue. You can compose, focus and shoot very easily and all framelines and range finder patch are bright and clear.
It feels like you're looking through sunglasses (slighly dim finder on one side). Shutter speeds: fires fine on all speeds - no sticking. Take up spool: working fine. Body: Normal signs of use. This version is in good, used condition, made in Germany.
It is a fast, extremely sharp and compact lens! It will work on all Leica M cameras including latest digital ones or other mirrorless cameras with a simple adapter.
It gives beautiful, perfectly round bokeh with its 15 aperture blades. Lens elements: no scratch/ fungus/ etc. Since this is a used lens it has some dust/ haze inside - you can of course clean it but I have used it without any effect on image quality. Lens body: no major dings/ marks - only normal signs of use.
Please note this is a user camera/ lens and will have some signs of use which are purely cosmetic. If you pay by bank transfer/ cash on collection, I can offer you a discount!
