Angenieux Retrofocus R1 F.35/1:2,5 Leica m mount

Postby Dnd » Mon Nov 25, 2019 11:18 am

Hello
I will appreciate an appraisal of a wide lens Angénieux Retrofocus R1 F.35/1:2,5 for Leica m mount. The serial number is 202080. Both focus and aperture rings work smoothly. There are sign of use but no signs of scratches nor fungus grow inside.
There is no original case.

Thanks for your answer box86worh. Yes, I am thinking about selling it.
Was it mean a difference for the appraisal?
Cheers

It would because it depends on how you decide to sell it. If you sell it on ebay, you may get a little more but have to deal with the buyer and return chances...if you sell to a reseller you get less, but don't have to worry about returns, etc...

Thanks box86rowh. Then, what I am asking for is the reseller price of the lens.

Does the lens have an adapter on it? It looks like it might from the picture.

You are right. It is a adapter! Good catch! In the contacting side of the ring has the legend " Leitz Wetzlar Germany DBP" and "M2 21-35" and "M3 135". The screw mount seems to be 39 mm (see the pictures).

I would say a reseller would pay you around 1500-1750 for that with the end market collectors value being more. I would be interested in it if you are looking to sell!

box86rowh: I truly appreciate your interest. I am evaluating it. But I can not begin to negotiate right now because my inquiry to this community was motivated in the context of another negotiation.
