    This is a Leica Thread Mount lens, and an M-Mount adapter is required for use with and M-Mount camera. The adapter is NOT included.

    Included with the lens is a generic front lend cap and a home-made rear cap.

    Thankyou, and welcome to Leicaplace.

    PM replied to, and The lens is sold pending payment for our new member, "mwizenbe". This is a nice one, an "export" version.

    Thanks Brian for the warm welcome. I love this lens, and will be great to have one as clean as it can be! Mine is not that clean, I bought it many years ago on eBay, and used with an M2 with good results.

    I finally convinced myself to buy an M-E, and started getting myself back "into Leica mode". Who knows, may even post some pictures soon ...

    Sold! This will go great on the M-E. I use the same fence post for testing lenses, get an idea of how sharp they are. This J-8 is sharp.
