    All prices include shipping in US and Paypal fees. Everything like new. I will ship USPS first class.




    Olympus OM-system MC 50mm f/3.5 auto-macro legacy lens. Super sharp macro lens. I'd say it is in excellent plus condition. Very few scuffs on the metal barrel, glass is pristine. No dust that I can see though you might find some with a 10x loupe. Nothing unusual for an old lens. Focus is smooth. Blades are snappy and oil free. $115 including the m4/3 adapter. WITHDRAWN
    Pentax-M SMC 50mm/1.7 lens. Mint glass, few scuffs on the body. At a glance it looks like has never been used. Smooth focus, no oil on blades. Great starter lens. It comes with the m4/3 adapter which is a little tide. $45. SOLD

    Mercury optics 72mm 3 filters set in a leather like hard pouch, circ polarizer, F-DL and UV. $25

    Leica M39 to m4/3 adapter. $18

    Leica M39 to m4/3 adapter (yes, for some reason I ended up with two) $18

    Leica L39 to m4/3 adapter. $20 This is the thread 39mm adaptor to micro 4/3

    Canon ND8 72mm filter. $15

    Cokin 58mm circular polarizer. $15

    PM sent about 50mm Macro. Q

    Quick question: will it work with a 4/3 mount with the right adapter as well?

    I'm sure it will work on any camera with the right adapter.

    Any lens will work on any camera. All the mount does, in its most basic sense, is physically attach a lens to the camera. The advantage of 4/3 and m4/3 is that they have shorter flange-sensor distances, so that most lenses will fully work in manual mode on the camera, in that they retain full focus distance. If you were to adapt a 4/3 lens to my Nikon, for example, you'd get darkened image corners/heavy vignetting, and you could only focus from probably about 8 inches to about 3 feet away. That being said, OM lenses on either a 4/3 or m4/3 camera work about as perfectly as an adapted lens could work. Olympus even makes some factory adapters to let you use OM lenses on 4/3 bodies.

    youry: What brand are the M39 adapters? I was passed down my great-grandfather's Leica IIIf . . .

    One of them is Pixco and the other one, which appears to be well made as well, doesn't have a brand name.

    Watch out, leicas older than the M3 are LTM (leica thread mount, ie., the lens is screwed to the body), not M39 !

    Cheers,
