I PURCHASED A FEW LEICA R LENSES IN REGULAR OR ROM VERSION AFTER I ACQUIRED A VERY NICE LEICA R8 DMR SYSTEM YEARS AGO. AFTER MANY YEARS OF USING THE SYSTEM WITH ROM LENSES, I DECIDE TO KEEP ONLY THREE QUITE EXPENSIVE ROM LENSES. THE REST OF THEM HAD BEEN ON AUCTION VIA EBAY PLATFORM SINCE COUPLE WEEKS AGO. THE AUCTION OF TWO LEICA LENSES JUST ENDED THIS MORNING. TODAY I AM SELLING ANOTHER LEICA MACRO-ELMARIT-R 60 MM F 2.8 3-CAM LENS. THE INCLUDED ITEMS ARE LISTED BELOW:
(1) LEICA MACRO-ELMARIT-R 60 MM F 2.8 3-CAM LENS (S.N. 2893959, MADE IN GERMANY).
(2) LEICA UVA E60 FILTER LENS (CAT. # 13381), SERIES VIII FRONT LENS HOOD (CAT. #12514), FRONT LENS CAP (CAT. #14341, 80MM), LEICA BAYONET-MT REAR LENS CAP (CAT. #14162).
(3) THERMOPLASTIC POLYURETHANE (TPU) RING TO EASE THE FOCUSING (AS SHOWN BY IMAGES #3,4,5 & 6).
I SPENT SOME TIME YESTERDAY TO CHECK AND TEST THE LENS AND AM HAPPY TO REPORT WHAT I FOUND AS FOLLOWS:
THE LEICA LENS BARREL, BOTH CAPS, LENS HOOD AND FILTER LENS ARE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION COSMETICALLY. THE FRONT RING OF FILTER LENS AND FRONT LENS BARREL HAVE SOME BRASSING AND SCRATCHES. THE TPU IS CLEAN. HOWEVER, THE BOTTOM EDGE OF TPU COVERED FOCUSING RING HAS SOME BRASSING AS WELL. BOTH DISTANCE SCALE BARREL AND GROOVED APERTURE RING SHOW QUITE A FEW BRASSING. THE FRONT/REAR LENS CAPS AND FRONT LENS HOOD ARE IN EXCELLENT PLUS CONDITION. THOUGH THE FACTORY BOX SHOWS SOME LOSSES OF ORIGINAL RED COLOR ON EDGES AND WHITE INK COVERED AREA, ITS OVERALL COSMETIC IS EXCELLENT. THE ORIGINAL COLORS OF CHARACTERS AND NUMBERS ARE STILL INTACT BUT FADE A LITTLE.
MECHANICALLY, THE TPU COVERED FOCUS RING TURNS SMOOTHLY. THE APERTURE RING CLICKS AT EVERY STOP AND THE DIAPHRAGM BLADES OPEN AND CLOSE RAPIDLY. THE OPENINGS LOOK CORRECT BUT NO BENCH TESTS WERE PERFORMED TO CONFIRM THEIR ACCURACY.
OPTICALLY, THE FILTER LENS, FRONT AND REAR LENS DO NOT SHOW ANY DEFECTS. AFTER SHINING A LED FLASH LIGHT FROM THE FRONT AND REAR OF THE LENS AT VARIOUS ANGLE, I DID NOT SEE WIPING MARKS, HAZE, SCRATCHES, FUNGI OR BALSAM SEPARATION. HOWEVER, AS IN MOST OF VINTAGE LENSES, THIS PARTICULAR LENS DOES HAVE SOME TINY DUST PARTICLES WHICH WILL NOT AFFECT THE IMAGE QUALITY ACCORDING TO SOME PROFESSIONALS.
THE PACKAGE WILL BE SENT TO DOMESTIC BUYER VIA USPS PRIORITY MEDIUM FLAT RATE BOX WITH DELIVERY CONFIRMATION FOR $17.50. THE INVOICE MAY INCLUDE THE STATE RETAIL TAX DEPENDING ON WHERE YOU RESIDE. FOR INTERNATIONAL BUYER, IT WILL BE HANDLED VIA GLOBAL SHIPPING PROGRAM WHICH HAD BEEN PROVEN TO BE COST EFFECTIVE AND FAST. YOU WILL RECEIVE AN INVOICE DIRECTLY FROM THE MANAGER OF GLOBAL SHIPPING PROGRAM AT THE END OF AUCTION. THE INVOICE MAY INCLUDE THE CUSTOM DUTY OF INDIVIDUAL COUNTRY. PAYPAL WILL BE THE ONLY PAYMENT METHOD. THE PACKAGE WILL ONLY BE SENT TO PAYPAL CONFIRMED ADDRESS. NO EXCEPTION.
BECAUSE THIS IS A LIQUIDATION SALE OF MORE THAN 30 YEARS OF MY COLLECTION, THE RETURN WILL ONLY BE ALLOWED IF THE ITEMS ARE NOT AS DESCRIBED OR DOA (DEAD ON ARRIVAL). IN THIS CASE, THE RETURN LABEL WILL BE PROVIDED. NO OTHER RETURNS WILL BE HONORED. SORRY.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN MY AUCTION AND GOOD LUCK BIDDING.
