RF all chrome version Canon SERENAR 85mm f/1.9 telephoto lens for rangefinder cameras



Chrome, Canon rangefinder (RF) version
85mm f/1.9
telephoto lens in SM mount (MK II not Serenar model)

"... Conon 85mm f1.9 M39 screw mount lens SN 66720. Made in Japan. It is marked EP, sold to US troops. It has M39 Leica screw lens mount. Over all excellent condition. I would rate it at 9- for cosmetics and at 9+ for performance on a scale of 10. Looks and works great. But it has little bit of rust on the lens barrel. Rust is visible in 1 and 3 picture above. Very clean glass, no dust inside. Front and back glass elements are in excellent condition. Aperture blades are clean, and oil free. Aperture click at every stop, as it should. Focusing is smooth, and is nice and tight, Everything works as it should. It comes with rear lens cap only...." - Rokas -
