珍品 Leica Summilux 50/1.4 Silver “Transitional” x “Unusual Mount”
Top Condition & Top Collectibles
This lens was produced in 1964.
Leitz Wetzlar rare original Summilux 1.4/50mm lens in M-mount.
First optical computation. The lens mount is insofar unusual, as the base ring shows a “straight-rilled” knurling, which only was commercially introduced with the black anodized Summilux-M 50 mm lens (version III).
“LENS MADE IN GERMANY” in the base ring not like the normal version of engraving.
The base ring has “4” very large screws and it is “matte chrome” i just see that screws on the some prototype lens before.
Probably experimental design. I think this base ring is prototype parts on the version 2 use for transition.
Very rare in silver one. Very mint glass.
It comes with original lens cap.
