LEICA LEITZ 75MM SUMMILUX-M 11815 F1.4 CANADA M LENS +CAPS MINT! LATE PRODUCTION
-Made in 1991 in Canada
-An amazing lens for portraits
-Fast constant aperture f1.4 diaphragm
-A wonderful focused lens as it does focus closer than most down to 0.7m and with the closer focal length, it gives this lens a very distinctive look and feel
This is a very special lens in many ways. Firstly it is the FAMOUS MANDLER designs and considered to be one of his FAVORITE optical design lenses. He was known to be one of the most famous lens designer of all time.
Also, this is a very LATE # production CANADA version lens. You can see that the script on the body and name ring are the later BLOCK style, later style with a later serial #.
After this, they canceled the production of all Leica M lenses ( except for the Noctilux F1 ) and sent everything back to Germany. Later marked MADE IN GERMANY. LATE # CANADA version. Very RARE!
If you are looking for an outstanding version of a 75mm 1.4, this is it.
Not to mention the very special performance of this lens. The shallow depth of field along with the longer mid/long telephoto, AND this focusing distance goes down to 0.7M so you can get even closer.
Maybe one of the BEST Leica lenses made. Really something special.
