Description
-Serial #3223931
-Black finish
-Made in 1992 in Canada
-A very RARE 70th Anniversary Special Edition version of this lens
-Please note the "Leica 1913-1983" engraved on the lower section of the the lens barrel
-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 FAVOURITE optical design lenses. He was known to be one of the most famous lens designer of all time. After this, they cancelled the production of this lens and many other lenses in Canada and sent everything back to Germany so they were then marked MADE IN GERMANY.

In the last 20+ years of finding spectacular collectables, I have may seen less than a handful of the the 75mm f1.4 70 JAHRE 1913-1983 version of this lens. 
To find one with its original box, papers and is that much more special and will likely not show up again for many years to come
