This is a really nice FF fast primes, that would work well in both FF and APS-C bodies. I know because I love mine on my K-3.
All the best for the sale...

A gentle bump for a great lens, With hood and caps, it is reasonably price IMHO as a CZ85mm owner. The lens does not come often in ZK mount.

Hope that someone will benefit....

thank you - I agree, the k-mount version of this lens is quite rare...

I counted two of them, in total, on eBay.....

a quick note on purchasing/ shipping this lens to the EU or UK - there have been a couple of people with interest in doing so..

this will add at least $150 to $200 to the price of the lens, mainly because I will not send the lens under-insured....

I have brought both my Zeiss lenses out from the USA to NZ, with insurance. There used to be a US Post First Class that included insurance for about USD $50 to ship the lens. Took a few weeks to come, but I have never had issues with it, or needed to claim on the insurance.

Is that still available, because it might assist, if you are open to international sales

it is still available, not quite as cheaply as the $50 you remember, but I would still rather ship it on this side of the pond....

From Australian point of view

I used to purchase regularly photographic equipment from US and Canada.
That was in the past before compulsory duty / GST was introduced on anything coming into AU from overseas.
Now , that is practically impossible , plus postage from US ( not from Canada ) became a gamble , although some places like B&H can still offer very reasonable postage charges and they also include all Australian arrival taxes in the price charged .

I'm just gonna put in a bump because I think the Planar might be the best lens design in history, and if I didn't already have the G mount 45mm (I use it on an actual G2) I would consider selling a kidney for a k mount version. This is a very good price from a very reliable seller. I encourage anyone to look at the results you can get with this lens on an SLR body. Not fair to compare to rangefinders IMO because the rear elements can extend further into the camera bodies with no mirror in the way.

I think it would actually be fascinating to see a rangefinder vs SLR comparison of some of these Zeiss lenses. It seems clear to me that SLR versions preserve the 3D effect but the G mount version gives "sharp" a new meaning, at least when mated to the camera it was designed for and not mounted on a Sony with some hamfisted adapter by a skinnyjeans art student.
