I have a copy of V2 (thin). It is a very nice lens sharp by f/4, and most importantly very compact with only 4 elements. About the same size as 50Cron It is susceptible to to two problems (i) if flares quite easily, even on a clean copy with hood on and, (ii) Optics are sensitive to white fungus growth (could be due to oil or glue used in manufacturing) and it is (almost) impossible to remove. So if you buy, always have to ask seller about the fungus problem and if there is a return policy.


Thanks a lot for the info!

That's not what I was hoping to hear! So it isn't the best lens for street portraits if the sun is anywhere near the frame I guess. The fungus is also something I hope I never have to deal with. On the photos I can't really see the glass so that might be a sign. I wrote the seller anyway but the auction is ending in a little over 4 hours and on the auction page it says that he does not accept returns.

What would be a really good price on this lens that I could just risk it, if he doesn't answer me on time?

Fantastic Lux series, Zhangyue! Both sets are outstanding.

Charlie, thanks! Beautiful landscapes as usual

Allen, #2 is my favorite. Very nice portrait.

Ryan, spectacular!

Gary, great composition and pensive moment.

Richard, congrats to your wife on the new job. Well timed portrait

I don't know as I have stopped shopping for lenses for over a year

Someone else might have to answer. Last year, at least in the USA it went from $500 to $900 depending on condition. The rear glass element is apparently sealed and this is the reason the fungus cannot be removed, so you might end up with a paperweight. Best is to inspect it with a Leica specialist for CLA. If its ebay, you are normally protected as a buyer if the item is defective. Good luck, Otherwise, for the same price you could and don't mind slower + larger size, look at the CV 90 3.5 APO Lanthar, or for slightly more a used 90/2.5 Summarit?

Thanks a lot Joe!

I let it pass since it would have cost me at least $600 (maybe more since it was an auction).

I'm waiting for a Tele-Elmar 4/135 that should arrive either tomorrow or the day after. So I guess I'll give that one a shot before buying anything else in the tele range.

How much better would the Tele-Elmarit-M 2/90 be compared to the 4/135 I already bought?

I also got a Summicron-C 40/2 today, which I'm pretty happy about.

Joe, is this the white fungus or is it normal wear on the aperture blades? http:[email protected]/9587645821/

That looks like normal wear on the blades. The fungus looks like a cloudy/milky substance on the 90 Tele-E and its on rear element

Danke Edward.

M8 is still pretty good.
I like the files, they have exceptional sharpness that compensates the low MP a bit and they have, most important, character.

I got my very first Leica lens ever today.

4/135 Tele-Elmarit

Do you guys share photos of the lenses here (I don't own a Leica camera, I will shot it on a Sony A7s). I'd like someone to have a look at it and tell me if everything looks in order since it is the first time I buy one and actually the first time I have one in my hands.

The 2/40 Summicron-C should arrive next week.
