Leitz Canada Summilux F1.4 35mm V2 1000 made Pre ASPH

Leica pre asph Summilux 35mm f1.4 v2 an extremely rare lens of which only 1000 units where made with goggles in near mint condition. both the barrel and the optics are basically like new. no fungus, haze scratches etc. It will be deliverd in original box with matching serial numbers. the original sun hood is also included. all in mint condition.

This lens was Leica's first venture into high speed wide angle lenses. with less than 1000 made this lens is rarely seen on the market. even less so in this condition. still renowned for it's superb optical quality this highly collectible lens is also your only chance to shoot with a pre aspherical 35mm summilux. Made purely out of aluminium this lens is much lighter than its modern aspherical equivalents.
to this day this is the smallest (and one of the rarest) 35mm f1.4 lens ever made for any camera. no viewfinder blockage whatsoever so you can see your whole frame unlike the modern summilux 35 which is much bigger and partially blocks your viewfinder.

if you have the ability to come and collect the lens in person then please do so as i'd hate to see a shipping company damaging such a beautiful lens.

package will be fully insured.
