How about 5 Zeiss lenses for $20,000.00?

Seeing is believing!

Someone posted this on the mflens forums and I was completely blown away.
I mean... I have a thing for old glass, but 20K for five cine lenses just feels downright insane!

The PayPal fees and shipping killed it for me.

I particularly liked the subtitle:

NOWHERE WILL YOU FIND ZEISS SUPERSPEEDS FOR THIS PRICE!

Zeiss ZF.2 SLR 5-Lens Bundle 410951-0000-033 B&H Photo Video



This is a new unboxed version of the set in a different camera mount.

Although I've never seen this marketed in North america; a while back I did see this set in a PK. I should have purchased it; would have been worth every penny of 6k++. Optically there aren't that many lens that can match these. I personally only have two that could exceed these Zeiss specs; one a Leica and another that has a starting aperature of f11.o (not a typo)

That's actually a pretty damn good deal for PL mount Superspeeds. Those are highly sought after cinema lenses in my industry and usually go for about 6k a piece. If I had the money..... I'd snap them up in a second.
