- Non-Destructive Conversion: When we convert the original Contax G35 lens for Leica M mount, we will not damage the lenses. It feels as good as the original Contax lens after conversion.
- User Experience: The way of using this converted lens is just like using Leica Summicron 35mm/2.0. With unsurpassed optics and images, you won't feel much difference compared to Leica lenses when you use it on Leica M.
- Easy to DIY: If you have a Contax G35, it is easy to assemble the original Contax optical lens group into our converted helicoid. You can recover if you do not want to play.
- Distinctive Patina: This lens is fun and silmilar to Leica MP "correspondent". You can create a distinctive patina by sand paper, which would usually point to many years of constant use.
