FOR SALE- Ultimate Leica R Lens Set.
These are my personal lenses, all were hand picked. These were never rented and used only by myself mostly on still cameras.
They have not been cinevised for a variety of reasons, but mostly because I am a collector and didn’t want my lenses damaged and I was also holding out hope that Leica would introduce a new camera to support these lenses.
The only modifications are the Leitax Canon Mount, which was installed on top of the existing Leica R Mount. I retained all the original screws for each lens in individual bags labeled for each lens so that the lenses can be restored to full Leica R originality.
Not only was each lens hand picked and inspected, but I selected the best Leica lens at each focal length. In the case of R lenses, the year of manufacture can make a big difference in the design and ultimate look of the lens. For example the Leica 50mm Summilux has at least three variations, but the latest made from 1997 onward is the most desirable and looks significantly better than any of the other versions. But less than 2700 of these lenses were produced, making them extremely hard to find.
