Whoa! 35-70/2.8, 100 APO and 280/4 (coming?) would be my pick out of that lot. Nice.

I don't see a 35-70 f/2.8. I see a 35-70 f/4. Nice selection of gear!

Ah, probably you are right, upon looking a second time. The cap made it look different to me. What is the lens to the left of that, and the left-most lens? An old 21?

Hi Carsten,

No, no f2.8 35-70mm Vario Elmar. It is a an f4 35mm-70mm Vario Elmar.

As to the photo and the gear, I have been using the R system since 1984 and much of the gear was purchased in the mid to late 80s.

As to the gear in the photo, we have the following lenses: on the R8- 35mm Summicron, on the R7- 50mm Summicron. In the front row from left to right: f4 21mm Super Angulon, f2.8 24mm Elmarit, f2.8 28mm Super Angulon PC, f2.8 60mm Macro Elmarit, f2.8 100mm Apo Macro Elmarit, 1:2 to 1:1 Elpro for the 100mm Apo, f4 100mm Bellows Macro Elmar, f4 35-70mm Vario Elmar, and 90mm Summicron. To the right of the lenses in the front is the 1.4X Apo Extender and the 2X Apo Extender. Behind the 35-70mm Vario Elmar are the f4 70-210 Vario Elmar (with removed hood) and f3.4 180mm Apo Telyt. Behind the 70-210mm Vario Elmar and the 180mm Apo Telyt is the rebalanced (with added custom made long plate and rail to totally rebalance the lens) f6.8 560mm Telyt lens. Behind the 560mm Telyt lens is the f2.8 280mm Apo Telyt. Also, in the very very front is the f2.5 25mm Photar lens on a Photar R adapter.

As mentioned, I now have the f4 280mm Apo Telyt and the f4 80-200mm Vario Elmar lenses. I will post photos of these lenses shorlty.

Doug, Thank you.

Rich

Very cool, Rich. I'm drooling a bit over the Photar. That's becoming hard to find in good condition.

These are being embedded in largely due to the soon to be released Leica M camera that will allow the Leica R lenses to be used on the camera by way of the R to M adapter.

I have prepared the photos but it is going to take several postings to be able to upload them all.

This is the first of three postings.

The first image is all of my Leica R Apo lenses.

The second image of both 280mm Apo Telyt lenses that can be compared for size.

The third image is the first of 2 of the "new" f4 280mm Apo Telyt lens.

The fourth image is the second of 2 of the "new" f4 280mm Apo Telyt lens.

This is the second of 3 uploads of photos, my zoom lenses.

The first image is of my 3 Leica R Vario Elmar Zoom lenses. In the first image you see the f4 Vario Zoom lenses with the 35-70mm to the left, the older 70-210mm in the middle (with the hood removed), and the 80-200mm to the right.

The second image is of the "new" f4 Vario Elmar lenses.

The third and forth images are of the f4 80-200mm Vario Elmar lens.

I may have missed out on seeing the 21-35 asph.. Does it not count, or is it irrelevant to this lineup ? Also the device at the front looks suspiciously like the monocular attachment. Both- as I see it are worth honourable mention.

I have only posted my system. It certainly is not the entire R system and there are many fine lenses that I do not own. The 21-35mm Aspheric is a fine zoom. In my first photo above, yes that is the ocular for the R system. It is very effective in "creating" a very fine and high performance spotting scope. When I brought it with me in 1998 to Florida along with the f5.6 800mm Modular Apto Telyt system (that Leica USA had loaned to me), I bumped into the Stokes (authors of the Stokes field guides) and they were shocked with the quality when used with the ocular.

Rich:

You had all that R glass and I assume you didn't get a DMR?

The 280mm f4 is bigger than I remember. It looks to be in very good shape too.

You will find the 80-200mm is a big improvement upon the 70-200mm. I first had the 70-200mm and later acquired the 80-200mm.

Hi Rob,

Thanks. No, I never purchased a DMR. I considered it and then everyone at Leica USA said parts were not available and they suggested that I wait. And wait and wait, and wait. The f4 280 Apo Telyt is probably close to M- condition with M condition for the glass. The 70-210mm lens has served me well. But, I will keep it probably for those instances that I need a faster operating lens than the 2 touch 80-200. The f4 280mm Apo Telyt lens is about 8.2 inches long and the 80-200mm is about 6.5" long. But the f4 280mm Apo Telyt is small compared to the f2.8 280mm Apo Telyt. The 80-200mm lens is probably in M condition (rated as M/M-).

Rich
