-This is a VERY rare and desirable lens. They almost never come up for sale. A must for a collector, enthusiast and even a user. A great lens! 
-One just sold at the LEICASHOP auction in Austria. Lot # 114, March 10,2018 for 1920 EURO ($2375 USD) and without the filter set, ring and the proper cap. Also, this particular lens is in better condition.
