This is one of the last lenses made in the first batch

I can not say enought good things about this lens. Not only being very RARE and hard to find, its condition, being complete and its uncompromising optical performance, this lens has it all.
Some would ask why would this sell for more over the M version that is the same. It is the fact that the R lenses have a larger image circle which is for the CINE shooters. The pros using the fine Leica glass for movies and film production.
A rare find. Truly outstanding in every respect and there being so few, these don't last long.
A pleasure to have and enjoy.
