I'm glad to propose up for the sale great wide lens from Leitz - Leica Elmarit-R 2.8/28mm 3 cam II ver. With Leica-R mount in excellent working condition. Leica Elmarit-R 2.8/28mm - is a fast, wide-angle lens with fixed focal length made for Leica-R mount SLR cameras.The Leica Elmarit-R 28mm F/2.8 debuted at Photokina in 1970, providing Leica R mount landscape, architectural, reporting, and advertising photographers with an ideal lens for their work. It was produced for a respectable twenty-two years, from 1970 to 1992, and was offered in two-cam, three-cam, and R-only configurations throughout the decades. Build quality is excellent, typical of classic Leica quality. The made-in-Germany Elmarit has a full metal body, including focus and aperture rings, mount, lens barrel, and filter thread. The focus action is smooth and weighty, and the aperture ring clicks into its half-stop detents with confidence. It's a dense, weighty lens; the kind of optic which is as fun to hold and look at and actuate as it is to shoot. The Elmarit-R 28mm f/2.8 is very small (only 40mm long and 63mm wide) and built like a tank, but I would expect nothing less at this price point.
The weight is nice too (only 275g) and both the focus and aperture rings turn easily. (they're a little too loose for my taste, though).The lens extends slightly when focussed to the minimum focus distance, but the front element does not rotate. Manual focus is a joy, because turning the ring from infinity to minimum focus distance (which is 0,3m) takes about 270°. Optical design: 8 elements in 8 groups. Focal length - 28 mm. Body is in excellent condition. Lens barrel accept light filter well. Glass is clean from any scratches or wear (except for few light marks from cleaning). No dust, no haze, no fungus or oil inside. The aperture moves nicely at every aperture position.
The aperture-control ring turns smoothly and accurate. The focusing turns smoothly and precise.
