Serial # 3344576 - Made in Canada
I'm offering you this beautiful mid telephoto lens, a Leica 90mm f/2.8 Elmarit-R 3 Cam Lens (late version) 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 Leicaflex SL, SL2, R3 to R7 manual focus cameras, and R8 and R9 without ROM contact functions.
Also with a proper adaptor, this lens may work on your DSLR cameras, such as Canon EOS, Nikon, Leica/Olympus/Panasonic(4/3 and Micro 4/3 system), Sony (modification), Pentax,etc. 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.

Manufacturers # 11806 (new version)
Incredibly compact lens taking into account its focal length and maximum aperture. It features 4 elements in 4 groups and a weight of 450g. Launched into market in l984, this is the second version of the Elmarit-R 90mm f/2.8 made between 1964 and 1983 and designed by Walter Mandler in Midlands which used 5 elements in its optical formula (being now in 2010, a very good contender featuring remarkable sharpness, good definition from center to borders of the image surface and outstanding ability for the capturing of details). This way, the second version of this lens appearing in the photograph was made in Germany from 1984 with a reformulated design of 4 elements, outperforming the quoted first version at full aperture along with a more uniform high level performance both in the nearest distances and in infinity, together with an improved flare wiping out. A very hand holdabe lens, rendering edge to edge sharpness and producing a bokeh.
* Front and Rear Lens Glass - EXTREMELY clean and CRYSTAL clear. Beautiful coating. One small cleaning mark is visible when it is held up to a bright light source, that does not affect any image quality. No signs of scratches.
* Lens Elements - a small amount of microscopic dust being visible when it is held up to a very bright light source – that will not affect any picture quality. No signs of fungus, fog, haze or separation.
COSMETIC: VERY MINIMUM signs of use or wear. A few small rub marks and/or blemishes on the aperture, focusing rings, and/or the built-in Hood are visible. No visible dents, scratches, dings or other cosmectic flaws. Since the cosmetic description is based upon my own standards that may be different from yours, please carefully examine each of the photos taken from various angles so that you can determine by yourself if this is what you are looking for. All photos were neither modified nor corrected by any means.
MECHANICAL OPERATION: No discrepancies were found. Focusing is very smooth, aperture blades are very accurate and click in place very smoothly. No oil on the blades.
