An all time classic Leica lens. Really fabulous and getting harder and harder to find. I have known of mint examples but this one I know for sure is a NEW OLD STOCK with box, papers and all. A great investment as they are always continuing to rise in value but most importantly a pleasure to have and enjoy!
