This is a fabulous lens. Undervalued. If you are looking for something above the 135mm matched M camed focal length in the rangefinder system, the next step is the R 180mm ( to be used with the R to M adaptor )
The fastest is the F2 which is a HUGE lens and over $8000. 
The next model below is the 180mm f2.8 APO which is $3500+ boxed and also 70g grams heavier over this lens that I am offering.
So this pre APO example is 1/4 of the price and actually the lightest 180mm you can buy in the entire Leica system at 450g
The version I of this lens is not popular as it was the original body design, larger, much heavier ( 970g ) and really not easy to use.
The best value is this 180mm f2.8 PRE APO, Version II F2.8 180mm Elmarit-R in terms of use, size, design and price. 
One of my personal favorites and nice to have complete in this condition with the box, papers, caps and all. Very nice!
