back when I was very young before most of you were born legond had it a bubble in your lens was a good thing a sign of quality. the occure now and then and seem to be of no importance. I suspect it gets in when the glass is molton

I have also heard this & there is a post here from LeitzKameraAktion (great moniker, btw) explaining why this is the case & which you can show to future buyers

shouldn't worry about it

if it shoots well, no problem

most Leica lenses are best not sold & I suspect should you ever have the need to part with it, there will be no impact on its price
