Description:

Here are two limited-edition, beautfifully made lenses produced in the 1990s with vintage style but modern optics: 

(SOLD)--Ricoh GR 28mm f2.8 #02032.  In Leica thread mount w/ included M-mount adapter.  The lens design was lifted from the acclaimed  GR1 point-and-shoot, and it performs accordingly.  Focuses to 0.7 meters. This is a complete set, including the 28mm finder (pictured on Zeiss Ikon camera); rear lens (M) cap, metal hood and metal hood cover, and a filter. (See japancamerahunter.com for an up-to-date review, which notes among other things that the lens incorporates aspheric elements.

(SOLD)--Konica Hexar 50mm f2.4 collapsible, #0843.  Like the Ricoh GR, the Konica is a sturdy, all-metal thread mount lens fitted with an M adapter that brings up the right frame lines on an M camera.  Focuses to 0.8 meters.  Included are rear cap, lens hood and filter. $425.

These two lenses together make a wonderfully compact kit -- the 28mm Ricoh without hood extends less than 1" from the camera body.  They are equally at home on an old Leica III or, with the adapters,  a modern M film camera.  Both use the same filter size, 40.5mm.

As for Leica digital cameras, however, a word of caution: wide open and close up, both the 28 and the 50 have back-focused on an M240 and an M-E.  The issue is not the lenses themselves: I've just had them checked at Nippon Camera, a reliable shop here in New York, and they are perfect. 

Interestingly, though, both lenses work like a charm on my Sony a7 with a Voigtlander M-to-E helicoid adapter. This setup has the additional advantage of allowing much closer focus than the native limits of the lenses -- like discovering a whole new gear in your favorite car.

BTW, I cover PayPal fees. Thanks for looking,

Dan

Great deal on the 50. That’s a very sharp lens with very nice contrast.
