NOW SOLD: 1940’s Leica Collapsable Elmar 5cm – 9/10
****THIS LENS HAS BEEN SOLD – A FEW MORE FOR SALE BELOW****
Just wanted to offer up a lens I am selling to all of you here, my readers. It is a special lens to me as I have owned it for years and it is simply gorgeous. It is a screw mount lens but has a thin Screw Mount to M adapter on it, and was on it when I purchased the lens from an older gentleman who was clearing out some of his old Leica gear. Why am I selling? Well, every 3 months or so I have to clear off some thing from my shelves in my office as they start to get overloaded. These days I have one shelf for all of my Sony gear (of which I have the most) and another for Leica and another for Micro 4/3.
This lens, while GORGEOUS..I just never use it anymore as I loved it on my Monochrom which I no longer own. So this is a chance to get a gorgeous perfect copy of this lens. I also have other gear for sale at the bottom of the page, all with fair and aggressive pricing.
I am asking only $200 for this lens and if you are looking for a super compact 50mm lens for your Leica or Sony then this one will give you a classical look. My fave use of this was when I owned a Monochrom. Matched up perfectly to it as you can see in the video below where I used the MM and this lens exclusively. All images you see were shot with this lens:

I had a screw mount Leica years ago with this exact lens.
It has character no doubt – would be great on the Mono.
Hi, Steve. Do your lenses ship outside the States? I currently live in Australia and am interested in your sales.
I confirm it’s a great lens. I use it on my Leica IIIc and the pics are superb with Ilford 100 Delta. It’s a bargain at 200$.
