-An amazing lens for portraits
-Fast constant aperture f1.4 diaphragm
-A wonderful focused lens as it does focus closer than most down to 0.7m and with the closer focal length, it gives this lens a very distinctive look and feel
-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. 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.

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 of all Leica M lenses ( except for the Noctilux F1 ) and sent everything back to Germany. Later marked MADE IN GERMANY. LATE # CANADA version. Very RARE!

Cosmetics 8.5+/10
-Barrel is in very nice condition

Just a minor mark on the bottom of the focus when the lens is mounted on the camera, it was sitting on the focus ring and left an impression ( as shown in picture 3 - cosmetic only)
-A clean example overall

Mechanics 9+/10
-Focusing is smooth
-Aperture clicks are crisp

Optics 8.5+/10
-No fungus, separation or scratches
-Very faint and very slight ring of haze, inside ( easily cleaned if you wish ) 

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.
And very hard to find, late BLOCK STYLE Canada version. NICE!

This really is a fine lens. A nice example and a pleasure to have and enjoy!
