All right: it’s not hard to see why you might need “spectacles” versions of both 35mm and 135mm lenses, and then there are the vanishingly rare (and non-Leica-built) “spectacles” 21mm lenses that call up the 35mm frame on everything except an M3 (which hasn’t got one) and convert it to a 21mm field of view.
Unlike the “spectacles” versions of the 35mm and 135mm lenses, where the “spectacles” are fixed, the “spectacles” on a 50mm f/2 “spectacles” or close-focusing Summicron are removable, and are added only for close focusing, when they are clipped on to the top of the lens like high-precision pince-nez spectacles.
Summiluxes (f/1.4) which are relatively rarely encountered in “spectacles” form, tend to go for more of a premium as compared with their non-“spectacles” sistren, so look in the $1000-$2000 region.
