RARE Leica Pentax 43mm f/1.9
Posted By: Julie, 03-22-2014, 04:16 PM

Any Pentax shooters here with a Leica or got a friend with a Leica looking for a new prime?

I've seen these run $900-1000+, someone on the Chicago Craigslist has got one for $700.

Funny how the '-L' stood for 'Limited' at the time this was made, but now it means 'Lesser'!

That looks like a leaf shutter lens - so my guess is that the L stands for leaf shutter.

It's a joke - you know, like a DA L lens today means plastic mount.

Sounds plausible - I'd say at least as likely as my guess, if not more.
