Leica R

4 lenses are for sale:

  • Elmarit-R 19/2.8 version II on its original Leica-R mount, with Leica-R to NEX Novoflex adapter.
  • Summicron-R 35/2 latest version in Nikon mount converted with Leitax mount with programmable chip.
  • Summicron-R 50/2 latest version in Nikon mount converted with Leitax mount with programmable chip. Included is an add-on marco lens.
  • Elmarit-R 90/2.8 latest version in Nikon mount converted with Leitax mount with programmable chip.

 

Elmarit-R 19/2.8 version II with E-mount adapter: 2,400.00 € o.n.o

** SOLD **

This lens sells for 3-4000$ on eBay. It’s a fantastic ultra-wide that shows moiré on the Sony A7r in the corners !!! See full review here.

This lens has the false reputation of being huge. This is due to the large sunshade. As you can see, without it, it is barely larger than the tiny Sony-Zeiss FE 35/2.8 ZA. It is in very good condition.

Summicron-R 35/2: 650.00 € o.n.o

This lens is a fantastic performer. Its worn exterior aspect is not a sign of abuse but of heavy use. Old lenses had lower quality control than modern ones, so a great sample saw heavy use and was past on from photographer to photographer. The scratches are a testament to its excellent optical quality. It has been reviewed here and here. Concerted to Nikon mount via Leitax adapter. Original mount provided.

Summicron-R 50/2 + Macro lens: 400.00 €

** SOLD **

Regarded by Leica superstar Thorsen Overgaard as the best 50mm in the world, this lens is a tremendous bargain these days. It also offers a much closer focus than the equivalent M-mount lens that sells for 4 times the price. With the included macro lens, you can focus down to 20 cm. This is what this lens can do (below). It is in excellent condition. Concerted to Nikon mount via Leitax adapter. Original mount provided.

Elmarit-R 90/2.8: 600.00 €

Identical design to the M-mount version which is regarded by Ken Rockwell as Leica’s best 90mm lens ever. In excellent condition, this latest-version lens is now an absolute bargain. Concerted to Nikon mount via Leitax adapter. Original mount provided.

Apart from minor scratches on front lens cap (Zeiss lens caps are crap and fall off permanently ;)) this lens is NEW. You couldn’t tell it from an off the shelf new lens. It is also brilliant on the D800e. Still 2 years of Zeiss warranty.

Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Panasonic 14mm F/2.5  ** SOLD **

Probably my favourite digital camera ever. I kept it when I bought the D800e because I couldn’t part with it. Bought in May 2012. Selling now because I really cannot justify 2 mirrorless cameras … I’m sure this system could make a reader very happy at a very reasonable cost. Looking for 650€ for the lot. At this price, I basolutely guarrantee you cannot find better equipment anywhere.

    Hi.

    Hope you get your cameras sold.

    I was also seriously thinkong about selling my Sony alpha 900 because I would like to have a smaller camera and better IQ. But I don’t think I will gain a lot from using the a7r instead of my a900 IQ wise. Regarding the size it’s obviously a lot smaller than my a900 but also worse in ergonomic. I guess I just have to work with my lazyness and take my huge camera with me 😉

    Best wishes

      Hi David,

      thanks for the comment. Yes, all thiss gear will get sold, too late to turn back now and, in a few days, I will be without camera for the first time in over 30 years ! A great opportunity to see what I miss or don’t and to think before hitting the buy button. The A7r is on order, but lenses will follow a slower thought process.

      If you’re happy with the a900, you’re quite right to keep it. I too doubt the quality will be much different and the ergonomics matter more. So go on, be lazy and keep on making great pictures 😉

      Cheers,
      Pascal

        Hi Pascal.

        I also thought that it would be a great opportunity to start from scratch 😉 Anyway I look forward to follow your blog and see some photos from the a7r.

        I guess it’s a bit dangerous for my wallet but I’ll take the chance.

        Best wishes

      Hi Chris, they are still available, as is a 28 Elmarit-R that I have not yet put on the page. All the best.

    Hey Pascal,
    While you’re waiting on that A7r, do some research on all that legacy M42 glass that makes the great bokeh backgrounds. For a coupla hundred bucks you can find several focal lengths that will simply mesmerize you with the creative potential these antiques can provide. I’ve got a Mir, a Zeiss and two Helios samples that are great fun and push you to shoot a different sort of image.

      Ooooh, sounds sweet! I’ll definitely take a look at them. Interested in sharing a few pictures? We’d be happy to publish an article on such lenses 🙂 🙂
