In case  you are wondering about the price, notice that the focal length isn't given. Even if f/2 summicron's are the cheapest line of lenses that Leica has to offer, they don't go for this cheap.... unless they are attached to the the front of a digital camera.... I give you..

$85 for a vintage eight-year old camera? Sure. But it just begs the question, what would the seller do if the buyer just wanted the lens...?
