With the exception of a few very tiny signs of finger wear, the black finish is not damaged in any way. All the barrel script is present and enjoys even and stark contrast, while the chromed bayonet mount is in excellent condition, complete with the red mounting dot. The focus ring turns easily, the aperture ring runs smoothly, dropping into each half stop detent with complete confidence, adjusting the incredible twelve blinds which give this lens a nearly perfectly round aperture, enabling that wonderful, organic bokeh which Leica are so renowned for. The aperture is as smooth as silk, and there is no sign of oil or rust at all, just a little blade rubbing to betray the passage of the years! The gorgeous coated optics are clear, with no visible marks and no dust visible when when held up to the daylight.
Most importantly, it produces great images. Amazingly, this particular lens shows little sign of the passage of six decades and as with all the best Leica kit, feels as if hewn from solid rock. The aperture is as smooth as silk, and there is no sign of oil or rust at all, just a little blade rubbing to betray the passage of the years!
