The Light Lens Lab Elcan 50mm f/2 is a replica of the 1970s Leica Elcan which only about 550 of which were made for the US military. The Leica version is a rare collector's item and usually fetches higher than $30k at auctions. The Light Lens Lab version is an exact replica down to the same glass materials used in the lens and is actually affordable for photographers who want to use this rare character lens.
