This is a used Leica 90mm f/4.0 Macro Elmar M lens kit. Its serial number is 39718xx. It includes caps, hood, and macro adapter. Condition is excellent. A wonderfully priced macro lens for the M system.
The 90mm f/4 lens is the latest addition in the popular short telephoto lens range, and when combined with the dedicated Macro Adapter (made specifically for this lens) has a reproduction ratio of 1:3. Weighing under one lb, and only 1.6" (41mm) when collapsed, the MACRO-ELMAR-M 90mm f/4 is first choice whenever you wish to limit your outfit to a minimum without forfeiting the maximum in image quality.
A high performance lens, ideal for portraits, travel or photojournalism.
The MACRO-ADAPTER-M was specifically developed as an accessory for the 90mm f/4 Macro lens. It allows close focusing with this lens from 2.5" (0.77 m) (reproduction ratio 1:6.7) down to 1.6" (0.5 m) (reproduction ratio 1:3).
This lens has been updated with the "6-bit" coding, which allows the digital M camera to read this information optically and to identify which lens is being used. The camera can then (optionally) apply a "final stage" software based vignetting correction (for RAW images the lens used is simply recorded, no change is made).
• Includes "6-bit code" which allows the digital M8 camera to identify which lens is being used, and also to store this information in image metadata
• Very compact and lightweight
• Can be converted into a macro lens with optional dedicated Macro Adapter (#14409)
• Included clip-on metal lens hood is reversible, and comes with it's own cap
