Optics 8+/10
-No fog, fungus, or separation 
-The glass is clean with a few very faint cleaning marks.

A great lens to use and reasonably priced considering. If you are looking for a nice example to use without paying collectors prices, this is it. Not abused, usable and a desirable 8 element optical Leica Summicron example. A pleasure to have and enjoy!
