Aperture blades are clean, and show wear. Open and close perfectly. The focus ring turns smooth. Comes with original Leitz caps.
Excellent condition. Glass has no cleaning marks, haze, fungus or scratches. (Glass does have dust. The lens can be cleaned for approx. $50.00-75.00) Focus is precise, and focusing ring moves smoothly. Diaphragm blades are clean, with no traces of oil. Diaphragm ring turns firmly with no play.
