Here we have a beautiful Leitz Wetzlar Summicron-M 50mm F/2 fast prime lens with original Leitz lens hood and Leitz UV filter, with rear cap.
A full review of this lens can be seen here.
It is in excellent condition and is fully functional.
The glass elements are pristine and free of scratches, balsam separation, haze, and fungus. The aperture blades actuate beautifully, though they do show minor lubricant marks. The focus ring spins wonderfully with perfectly damped resistance, and the aperture ring clicks into its detents with mechanical precision. The filter threads and lens mount are in unmarred condition.
The included UV filter and lens hood are original Leitz equipment and are in similarly good condition with only a minor ding in the lens hood.
The Leitz Summicron-M 50mm F/2 is widely considered to be one of the best standard lenses ever made. It offers exceptional sharpness at all apertures, even wide open, while also allowing us to make incredible bokeh and subject isolation when shot wide open toward close subjects. The lens produces exceptional micro-contrast, further bolstering the stellar look of images it makes. Leitz' optical coatings do well to completely eliminate chromatic aberration and other optical anomalies.
Simply put, this is one of the best 50mm lenses ever made.
This is the version three of the famous Summicron-M 50, which means it will naturally mount to all Leica M mount cameras and any other M mount camera. These include the original Leica M3, M4, M6, etc., as well as many other brands' cameras, such as the Minolta CLE and Zeiss' ZM.
This lens can also be used easily on modern digital cameras, including mirrorless cameras from Fujifilm, Sony (such as the a7 and a9), and on Leica's own mirrorless cameras. This is achieved by way of simple adapters.
