LEICA Tele-Elmarit-M 2,8/90mm "1913-1983"
The Tele-Elmarit M 2,8/90mm belongs to the second generation of lenses of the Leica M system and was produced from 1973 to 1987.
It is based on the predecessor model, but has a different optical design and a new, lighter lens barrel and revised mechanics. The optical performance is very good and even today the lens impresses with its performance on current digital Leica M cameras.
In 1983, a small number of these lenses were produced together with the Leica M4-P as an anniversary model "1913-1983". The special model celebrates the 70th anniversary of the first Leica prototype manufactured by Oskar Barnack.
2,500 Leica M4-Ps were specially engraved on the back of the cover. The following lenses were also custom-engraved: Elmarit-M 2.8 8mm, Summicron-M 2.0/35mm, Summicron-M 2.0/50mm, Summilux-M 1.4/50mm and Tele-Elmarit-M 2.8/90mm. Also the Winder M4-2 and the universal bag 14816 were available with special engraving.
In some countries, the anniversary model of the Leica M4-P was offered exclusively in sets.
The offered Tele-Elmarit-M 2,8/90mm is technically and cosmetically in good condition, the lens is unfortunately cloudy and will be delivered incl. lens hood and caps.
