See edit in my previous post. I have images of all full stops from f/4 to f/11 - all good.
I'll post an image of the series...


Seems that this really lucky (with serial lens for 3000-4000$ from famous brand !!! ), especially considering voiced small statistics before.

For Win: buddy, if mine copy with same aperture as yours (your copy also 389xxxx as from Ron), I think I need understanding of the internal adjustment aperture's unit inside R180/2.8. Sure, that if the all parts inside similar and so - no any impossible things

P.S. But if the aperture blades has constant non-moving axis than only blade's shape affect this

I wonder if Leica actually changed the aperture assembly at some point *before* introducing P/N 11357. My lens is 3897xxx, and I know of 3895xxx examples that do exhibit 'Ninja Star'. Once I receive the lens, I will post images that show the shape of the aperture blades. Then we can compare...

If any of you guys are not happy with your AE 180, I am always willing to trade with my Lux 80 for it....

This is keywords, unfortunately. If the aperture unit has a classic design.

Win, which s/n of your 180? Before 3897xxx or larger?

I'll post an image @ f/3.2 once I receive the lens.

Speaking of f/3.2: what would you experienced AE180 shooters consider the sweet spot of this lens?

I am getting confused.

If you don't have the lens, how did you shoot the series from f/4 through f/11?

Inquiring minds like to know

I had the seller do it (I do trust him)

Edit: I would not have bought the lens without seeing the images first.

Hi all,

I was just able to purchase an APO-ELMARIT 180/2.8 with S/N 389xxxx at a good price. Below an image of the aperture of this lens at f/8. Looks good to me! Many thanks again for all your help!

Edit: I have the whole series from f/4 through f/11. They all look good. Die, Ninja!

Best,

Ron


I just looked up my lens sitting on my lap and it is with a S/N 389xxxx.

This is a version 1 serial number.

I also have another APO 180/2.8 which is version 2 but it is in my other house location.

I double checked E.Putts numbers and they list the S/N389xxxx as 1st version as well which is exactly like the one I have.

To cut a long story short, you should have clearly a Ninja aperture and I appreciate you trust your seller but he might have erred on the left side.

According to my modest powers of observations, the shot claimed at f4 is an f5.6 and the shot claimed at f11 is an f16.

The wall thickness between the glass and the body seems to be thicker than it should be.

Of course, I might be wrong and I hope I am wrong.

I think we better keep the jury out until you get the lens and do your own tests and publish here.

Almass, i think in this case this is not matter... Another man posted shot of lens with very close s/n and that's was full "ninja" nirvana from Leica style. I'm very soon recieve the 180 with 379.... and I'm ready! My soul already opening for any reality

Konishua!!! )))

The clarity and transparency of the picture tonality is very good.

Enjoy your 50 - E60.
