I have a nice 25mm, F 1.3 for 16mm. I used this for my Elmo 16CL.

Price is US$150 (or eqv. EUR 135) + shipping.

I see that Elmo describe the f1.8 12.5mm as "a unique super wide-angle lens".
Probably with a price to match. [Big Grin]

Hi Jorg, the Elmo is a great lens, but if you can get one there is a very nice Buhl 1.4 12.5mm about as well usually sleeved for an Elmo.

They have a good image maybe just a tad down on the 1.8 elmo.

Best Mark.

Jorg... FYI...I just saw this on the U.S. Ebay. Not cheap!

No not so cheap, that is a bit too hot to handle Janice plus with import taxes etc to add as well coming this way. But looks nice.

You should get one for around £150 in the UK/ or EU Jorg with luck.

Best Mark.

Hello Janice,

thank you very much for the advice!

The seller doesn't accept lower prices and the listed price doesn't seem very realistic to me.
What I pity because the lens would have been useful for me.

Please let me know if you see another of these lenses somewhere.

Thanks and best wishes

Jorg

I dont know about this lens but if the lens is rare, this is the time to buy. We never knew when it will come again We understand this is an expensive hobby.
