View Full Version : Picking up a 90 summicron :)
Just contacted accphoto in HK for an APO SUMMICRON M 90mm 2.0 ASPH in chrome. I cant believe how much cheaper it is over seas. $1550.00. Well, time to start preping the wife :)
Fortunately here, my wife has no clue about the value of some of my things. If I let her know how much I paid for my Contax...
And, considering it was a used kit, it's a steal! Haven't found anything priced that low. And yes, it works.
Jorge, how 'bout some used Leica bodies? Preferably metered? Can you spare the url here? Thanks!
Some of us got in a little earlier. I have an M4-2 and three lenses: 35mm f2, 50mm f2, and 90mm 2.8. I bought all back in the 80's, and they are all I want as far as lenses go. My purchase records show I bought the 90 on 9-6-84, and I paid $365 for it. Read 'em and weep! (Yes, it was new.)
I'm weeping right now... because even in '84, $365 was not an exorbitantly large sum, like $2,500 (the price of a MP or the M7) is now...
Makes you wonder about prices 15 years from now... :(
look up at the top of the page - accphoto - is where jorge is scoring all these deals.
Well, joe, I looked at ACC prices and I found a grip going for $60. I'll keep you posted via PM.
Still... $365 for a 90mm Leica lens is something to cry over. :(
if any of us had only known...
