Leica Leitz Wetzlar Elmarit R 90mm F/2.8 Fast Prime Lens with Lens Bubble Case, Lens Caps - Red Scale Single Cam Version - Made in Germany
Here we have a beautiful condition Leica Leitz Wetzlar R Mount 90mm F/2.8 fast prime portrait lens for Leica R mount cameras. This rare condition lens comes complete with the original Leitz bubble case and lens cap. An unusually complete and incredibly well maintained lens. This is the red scale version, single cam.
It is in exceptional condition and is fully functional.
The glass elements are pristine and free of scratches, balsam separation, haze, and fungus. The aperture blades are free of oil and actuate beautifully. 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 Leitz Elmarit-R 90mm F/2.8 is considered to be one of the best portrait lenses for the R system. 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.
This is the single cam version of the Elmarit-R, which means it will naturally mount to the Leicaflex SLR camera as well as to later Leicaflex SL and SL2 cameras (though for these cameras the lens will only meter in stopped down mode).
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.
If you're unsure if this lens will fit your camera, just ask and I'll be happy to help.
