latest pickups...
Leica Elmarit 28mm ƒ/2.8

thanks Santa, you're too kind! he brought me the replacement for the 28mm Konica M-Hexanon i picked up earlier this year. this is the second version of the Elmarit, made 1972 by Leitz Canada, which is the first one that can be used on modern digital Leicas, as the first version, which cost a fortune due to being a collectors item now, has a deep protruding rear element that blocks the light metering. the lens is in a fantastic cosmetical condition and also technical it's superb, considering its age of almost 45 years. as it happens i was able to track down the (quite rare) original lens hood during the christmas days.
