Earlier this week we shared an eBay listing of an incredibly fast and extremely rare Canon 50mm f/.75 lens. It appears though that Canon isn’t the only lens manufacturer getting some f/.75 love from eBay.

While it’s been sold, a Leica Elcan 65mm f/.75 F-mount lens briefly appeared on eBay Denmark for a short period of time.

According to the listing, the Leitz Elcan 65mm f/.75 had been converted to a Nikon F-mount at some point, but can also be converted back to the original or a different mount.

The listing says the lens is like new in terms of cosmetics and is void of any scratches, haze or fungus within the optics. The photo of the lens appears to confirm that.

The lens sold for US$850, not including a US$25 shipping fee. From previous listings of the lens, this selling price tends to be on the high side, but that’s likely due to the considerably pristine condition of it.
