200 DAY WARRANTY. For sale is an extremely rare Leica 35mm f/1.4 Summilux R lens, complete with its original leather case. This lens is an ultra-fast wide-angle prime designed for photography in less than optimal lighting conditions. It is perfect for photojournalism and features outstanding imaging quality and exceptionally low distortion.
Compatible with all Leica R models, it can also be modified to work on a Leicaflex SL2. Optically, everything is in perfect condition and has been tested extensively to verify it is free of any haze or defects. Since this is an older lens, there are small specks of dust visible but this can be cleaned and nothing is visible on pictures. The focus ring and aperture ring rotate tightly, and smoothly, with the perfect amount of resistance, exactly what you would expect from a lens of this caliber.
Aesthetically the lens is in flawless condition. Front and rear lens caps are included, as well as the original leather case. The lens hood is built-in, and pops out, in added engineering brilliance. You can find these lenses listed elsewhere, where sellers are asking upwards of $15,000.
