Leitz Wetzlar Summarex 8.5cm f/1.5 Telephoto Lens made in 1952, coated, with serial # 1008025. Only 4,342 Summarex lenses were made (about 4,100 chrome finished and a few hundred black finished). Comes with dedicated lens shade, metal rear cap and leather case.
Lens was just given a full 2 hour CLA by Youxin Ye and his wife on April 1st. I sat at their table the entire time and watched and talked. See $ 150.00 receipt.
Glass is clean and clear, with no haze or fungus. A few dusts spot here and there on but a clean and clear hunk of glass. Front element has a modest amount of cleaning marks - scattered - no swirl marks, not bad at all, but there are some present. Aperture blades perfect and dry. Focus smooth. Barrel shows some signs of use and modest wear. No dings or dents or heavy use marks at all. Would grade glass 9- Barrel 8 and lenshood 8 because it is slightly out of round. This hood has thin walls and is easily bent back to round - I am just leaving that to the next owner. Its very minor and hard to notice.
Lens was tested on Youxin's digital M camera and this lens produces very soft images wide open to moderately crisp images stopped down to f/8.
