LEICA 180mm f/2.8 Elmarit - R Lens Vers. 2 ROM "MINT to LN"
Serial # 3730140 - Made in Germany
If you are looking for an exceptional quality Telephoto lens, here is an opportunity. I am offering a Leica 180mm f/2.8 Elmarit-R ROM Lens for very reasonable "Buy-It-Now" price. From time to time, you find yourself paying more than what you anticipated during the last moment hassle in an auction style bidding. Here you will know exactly how much you pay for this item.
This lens should be compatible with R3 to R7 manual focus cameras, and R8 and R9 withROM contact functions.
Also you may attach this lens to your digital SLR cameras, such as Canon EOS, Nikon, Leica/Olympus/Panasonic(4/3 and Micro 4/3 system), Sony (modification), Pentax,etc with a proper adapter. However, I make no gurantees about usability of this lens on any system other than Leica R. Please do your own research if you plan to use it on non-Leica system with an adapter before you commit to buy.
THE LENS COMES WITH:
* Leica front lens cap 14291 E67
* Rear lens cap 14162J
*Leica Black Soft Leather Lens Case
A very compact lens made between 1980 and 1998 bearing in mind its focal length and maximum aperture. It was designed and optimized for its handhled use. It features 5 elements in 4 groups and a weight of 810g. A lens delivering superb image quality. Its optical performance approaches to the level of truly apochromatic great aperture medium teleobjectives made by Leica, but reducing to the utmost both the bulk and weight of the lens, and offering a very difficult to beat price/quality ratio. On the other hand, it sports a top-notch built-in hood fairly useful in harshly backlighted photographic environments and generally speaking to fully assure the avoidance of flare, though truth is that the high quality antireflection coatings featured by the elements of Leica R lenses are so good that they minimize this problem in a lot of cases. Remarkable the fact that this lens replaced the first version of Elmarit-R 180mm f/2.8 made between 1968 and 1979, which was excessively stout (1325g) and featured 5 element, two of them being cemented to constitute a pair. It rendered very good image quality but was cumbersome to use because of its great dimensions and weight till it was substituted by the second version, which has an improved optical formula sporting ED glasses and weight 650g less. When an APO-EXTENDER 1.4x is attached to this lens, it becomes a still high quality Leica 250mm f/4 lens, because the Leica R extenders are so good that image loss is very little, particularly with the APO-Extender 1.4X.
