This Leica Tele-Elmarit 90mm f2.8 chrome 1st version M bayonet mount lens is in great user condition cosmetically, mechanically and optically. Serial #2001791. Extremely early serial number example. Made in 1964. This is a preproduction example. Regular production started at #2069501 and preproduction examples started at #2001001! Desirable chrome finish. Only about 3000 examples ever made in chrome finish. Compact 1st version lens. Known as the 'Fat' Tele-Elmar lens. Almost as compact as a 1st version 50mm f1.4 Summilux lens. Dual scale red/black feet/meter focus scale with the scalloped focus ring. Glass has some very minor haze between elements but lens has been tested and it does not affect the optics at all. Included are two sample images to show lens quality. In great condition overall.
