7Artisans 50mm f/1.1 lens for Leica M-mount now available for sale in Europe


Several readers have asked me where they can purchase the 7Artisans 50mm f/1.1 lens for Leica M-mount in Europe. Amazon Germany and Amazon UK now both have the lens listed in stock on their websites:

In the US the lens is available at Amazon and eBay.
Additional information on the 7Artisans 50mm f/1.1 lens can be found here.

Here is a quick update from a reader:

I received my lens yesterday.  I wanted to describe the actual lens for the benefit of the readers...
The lens came by DHL in abut a week after ordering through Amazon US.  There was no duty collected. The lens is 6 bit coded as the F1.0 Noctilux.  No lens hood was included.  Fit and finish look excellent.  There are included instructions to calibrate the lens and the rangefinder to your camera. (You loosen screws, rotate the focusing helix, tighten the screws.) This is required only for use on M cameras.  Lens appears to be coated. The rotational distance to go from Infinity to .7 meters is less than 90 degrees.  I would have preferred more for a lens with very thin DOF.  have not shot the lens yet, so no comments on image quality.
