  1. #1 Leica R Lens Swaps for Matching set 

    Any Leica R owners in the UK willing to meet up for a lens swap?

    I have a 4 Lens late 80's Summicron Set that consists of:

    Elmarit R 19mm V2 350
    Summicron R 35mm V2 347
    Summicron R 50mm V2 348
    Summicron R 90mm Pre-ASPH 340

    All lenses are optically and mechanically perfect, the lens swap is for colour matching purposes only.

    I've noticed that my 19mm is warmer than the rest and thought that it could be a good opportunity for myself and others to meet up and potentially swap lenses to better match our sets.

    Interested to know if anyone else is in a similar situation to me and would be keen?

    Hey Matt, I'm about to sell my Leica -R lenses, including a 19mm V1, a 24mm and a 28mm, pm me if interested.

    19mm V2 is usually matching to much later Leicas with serials over 37xxxxx which are warmer and less greenish than earlier ones.

    So you either upgrade all the other ones or swap for a 19 V1.
