    For sale is the collapsible M mount Summicron 5cm that I bought from Brian a few months ago through these classifieds. The body of the lens is in pristine condition but the glass is hazy and has some cleaning marks. I bought it in this condition and it does take very nice 'atmospheric' portraits but does flare badly in direct light, otherwise it can be cleaned. I have included a photo taken with it on my M9 below. I'm asking what I paid for it - $250 plus shipping and paypal fees. It will be express shipped with insurance at cost.

    i have this same lens and it gives that old, nostalgic look to the photos due to its low contrast character. Works very well in high contrast lighting and b&w images.
