   Leica M4 Black Paint, Leicavit-M, Rich GR lens, and more

Best Offer None Excellent
Description:

2018 is about to be upon us, and I’m going to get really serious about reducing the stuff I have. I can’t have a simple life, but I can always aspire to simplify…
 
Admin bits first:
Paypal Personal Payment option (no fee for seller or buyer) is the default and preferred payment method. I hope my extensive feedback record here backs up my credibility. International fee and shipping are extra (beyond what I cover for domestic). If you don’t like what you received, send it back in absolutely unaltered, as-sent condition for a full refund minus original shipping cost. Please pay return shipping. International sales are final with no return.

---------------------------
 
Leica M4 Black Paint (original black paint, not a repaint or artificially aged)
 
Can’t believe I’m letting this go, but this camera deserves a new owner who can shoot a lot more than I can. I’m just keeping my M4-P, which has a sentimental value, with a 35mm and a 50mm. Everything else must go.
 
Cosmetics: Marvelous original black paint and patina. Serial number is in the 1969 black paint production range, and you can see the bubbling that’s unique to the original black paint Leica. No serious dents but this camera was well loved and used. Not a museum piece. You see some vulcanite fall-offs, but the remaining part doesn’t feel loose.  If you are not into M4 BP, you might feel weird about the mixed use of black chrome and black paint parts, but that is correct for this production.
 
Mechanical: The camera was CLAed by Sherry some years back according to the previous owner, and everything works. All shutter speeds sound reasonably correct but I have no machine to test. I’ve shot a couple dozen rolls with good results. Optics are pretty darn clean. I see a tiny bit of vertical misalignment of RF but I’d wait till next CLA to correct as it’s so minor and does not get in the way in use. Sherry modified the camera to take the modern Leicavit-M and motor drive, and I’m including the original (no hole) and a winder-compatible internal cover plates so you can go stock look or rock a winder and channel your inner Jim Marshall. In fact, the previous owner was a personal friend of Jim Marshall and a fellow RFF member.
 
Included: Inner cover plate with an opening for Leicavit-M (modern). The original plate is currently installed, but please let me know if you wan to swap them out.
 
[SOLD]
 
---------------------------
 
Leica IF Black Dial
 
For If, the Black Dial is the rare variant against Red Dial unlike the IIIf. Very clean condition, original vulcanite fully intact, everything works smooth, and it’s just so fun to shoot with wide angle lenses.
 
$320 shipped to CONUS.
 
---------------------------
 
Leitz Sumer-Angulon 21mm M4 in silver chrome
 
Fantastic little gem that also needs a better owner. I particularly love this lens because you can unscrew the M mount base and quickly turn it into LTM lens. Clean glass, smooth action, no issues and ready to shoot.
 
Includes: Leitz genuine metal deep rear cap (costs a small fortune!) and the little screw for the M mount.
 
$800 shipped to CONUS.
 
---------------------------
 
Ricoh Lens GR 28mm F2.8 in LTM, silver
 
This is truly a precious gem of a lens. I was fortunate to own it. I just don't shoot 28mm enough.
 
Mechanical/Optical Condition: Clean glass, maybe tiny dusts. Previous owner (RFF member) had it serviced by Ricoh and everything is smooth. Ricoh VF is also optically clear.
 
Cosmetic Condition: Lens barrel is very clean except a small scratch/bright mark you can see on the inner barrel. Purely cosmetic. Inside of the metal hood seems to be touched up at some point. Front lens cap has bright marks. Viewfinder is in fine cosmetic condition with nothing to note.
 
Sale Includes: Box, user manual, VF, hood, Ricoh front and rear cap.
 
[SOLD]
 
---------------------------
 
Lomography Minitar-1 32mm F2.8 in Leica M mount, silver
 
Another lens deserves a better owner. I’m just too boring for it and just using my 50, 35, and 21mm.
 
Mechanical/Optical Condition: Smooth operation, clean glass BUT please not that this is Lomography Art lens, optical elements proudly made in Russia. There are tiny marks, dusts, a lint or two. By no means dirty or compromised. They are as clean as they come from Lomography. You just can’t compare with a new Leica or Zeiss glass. Wink
Cosmetic Condition: Pretty much as-new/mint condition. Surprisingly well built.
Sale Includes: Box, all paperwork, leather lens sleeve, cleaning cloth, Lomography front cap and generic rear cap.
 
Price: $200 shipped CONUS.
 
---------------------------
 
Leitz SBOOI 50mm Viewfinder
 
Clean optics, clean exterior with minor marks.
 
$120 shipped to CONUS.
 
---------------------------
 
Voigtlander 28mm Metal Viewfinder in silver
 
Clean optics, like-new exterior. Comes with box and soft pouch.
 
$120 shipped to CONUS
 
---------------------------
 
Voigtlander 21/25mm Metal Viewfinder in silver
 
Clean optics, exterior. Comes with box and soft pouch.
 
$120 shipped to CONUS
 
---------------------------
 
Leicavit-M Black Chrome
 
Very hard to find black chrome version (silver chrome and black paint are common). Very clean with minor signs of use and a bit of rub marks from strap. No dents.
 
[SOLD]
 
---------------------------
 
Leicavit-M Black Paint LHSA Limited Edition
 
Extremely hard to find LHSA Limited Edition of Leicavit-M with “Leicavit” script. Well loved and used. Comes with box.
 
[SOLD]
 
---------------------------
 
Rolleicord V
 
Looks really great and the optics are clean. Slower shutters are sticking and film transport is a bit fiddly. A prime candidate for CLA and you’ll have a very clean copy. That said, it needs work and I’m pricing it accordingly, and sold as-is.
 
Price: $150 shipped CONUS.
 
---------------------------
 
Small Items
 
Following items are in good working condition with some signs of use. Please refer to the photos in the gallery, and ask questions. For filters, there may be some minor marks or fine hairline scratches on the glass or coating from age, but that should not affect the image quality. Filters come in whatever plastic case I have unless otherwise noted. All prices include CONUS shipping.

Thanks guys! It's a bit of odd timing to sell things maybe, but we'll see.


I woke up to a lot of inquiries on the M4 BP. Replying one by one. I've also added a bunch of close-up photos of the M4 to the gallery.

Found 23/1.4 and the buyer for 23/2 on RFF so that trade is off the table. Let me know if anyone is interested in any of the remaining items.
