HI All,

I came across a LTM 19/3.5 (RF coupled) from Canon in very good condition today. Asked for $430 so I snapped it. I don't know what to expect but it seems to be a very interesting lens. There are something online about it but not much. I wonder what opinion people have on it.

I will post pictures once I got it.

Cheers!

That's going to be a sharp one, as an educated guess. Nice to find in good condition.

Could produce color shifted edges on a digital M, if so manually selecting a similar lens will help the camera correct for that. How many aperture blades?

Update:

My lens has some edge haze and stiff focusing. It will visit DAG.

As for color shift, on M240 the area affected is about 10% on both sides. The lens seems to be perfectly centered. I guess my sample is not too bad.

Serial is 12050 :)
