Subject: [Leica] Elmarit-R 2.8/35
Date: Fri, 4 Dec 1998 11:52:43 +0100

a few weeks ago, I bought a used mint 2.8/35 Elmarit-R. The lense is a german 
version (Leitz Wetzlar) with serial VII filter and hood. I dontīt know the age 
of this lense but I think it should be in the range from 1970 to 1975. The 
serial# is 2620227 and it had, when I bought it, Leicaflex control curves only. 
Meanwhile itīs rebuilt for R cameras.

Does anybody from the LUG league know what age this lense has and some comments 
and experiences in comparison to the newer 35 Summicron and Summilux would be 

thankīs for any comments
