Seller: tgoode.451 (373) 100%, Location: Milton, Ontario, Ships to: CA, US, Item: 233488864961 Alpa Kern Switar 50mm F1.8 AR Prime Lens (not Macro). Condition is Used. •Clean & clear glass •mechanically 100% •cosmetically excellent + •includes hood •includes aluminum front cap Optically this lens is very clean & clear, showing only a tiny amount of internal dust. No haze. No fungus. No balsam separation I am not sure of the year of manufacture of this lens, but it is, with the exception of the expected patina, in as new condition. There are very few fine scratches on the barrel of the lens. Functionally the focus is comfortable to use, not requiring exceptional force, with no tight spots. The aperture control ring and the aperture preset selector ring both move as expected. Aperture clicks are quiet and soft to touch. There is no sign of rust or oil on the aperture blades, and the automatic aperture mechanism works perfectly. With the aperture opening and closing as fast as you can press the button. This lens is rangefinder coupled on the Alpa Model 7 and Model 8. It can also be used with rangefinder coupling on Leica M cameras, using the ~$50 adaptor seen on eBay- it looks like the Kipon, but is cheaper. This lens has macro capabilities, but it is NOT the Alpa Kern Switar Macro. This lens is capable of close focus of ~16”, however. At that distance my cat’s head fills the entire frame. Condition: Used, Year Manufactured: 1950s, Brand: ALPA, Focus Type: Fixed/Prime, Custom Bundle: Yes, Type: Apochromatic, Focal Length: 50mm, Bundle Description: Includes Front Cap And Hood, Focal Length Type: Fixed/Prime, Maximum Aperture: f/1.8
