This Leica Apo-Telyt-R 400/560/800mm lens head and 280/400mm f2.8 Focus-Module are in near mint condition cosmetically, mechanically and optically. Serial #3781096. A very rare and hard to find Leica R lens outfit. This is a part of the very rare and hard to find Leica APO-Telyt-R Module System. Very few of these lenses were ever made. Only 400 examples of this 400mm/560/800mm lens head were made. The system worked with a series of interchangeable lens heads and focus mounts to create a variety of fast super telephoto lenses. This combination here creates the Leica Apo-Telyt-R 400mm F2.8 ROM lens. Comes with everything shown. Only available from Leica in 1996 and 1997 and cost a fortune when sold new. Takes amazing photos. An extremely hard to find outfit and a must have for any collector or enthusiast.
