LEICA 75MM SUMMILUX-M 11815 F1.4 M LENS +CAPS 6BIT FACTORY UPGRADED! LATE # RARE
-This is a very late # Canadian made version
-An amazing lens for portraits
-Fast constant aperture f1.4 diaphragm
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 in Canada of this lens and almost all lenses and sent everything back to Germany so they were marked MADE IN GERMANY. LATE # CANADA version.
Also, this was recently sent back to the Factory to be 6 BIT DIGITALLY compatible upgraded by Leica. It comes with the Leica Service box and an original Leica 6 bit ring and the lens was calibrated for digital use.
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.
