[SOLD] Tilt set-up ARAX tilt adapter Pentacon Six to Pentax K + Carl Zeiss Flektogon Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Tilt set-up ARAX tilt adapter Pentacon Six to Pentax K + Carl Zeiss Flektogon 50mm f4

Asking Price
230 Euros

Item Location
Berlin (Germany)

Item Description
This is a great set-up to kick-start into tilt photography.
It consists of a tilt adapter and a matching medium format lens:

- Arax Tilt Adapter Pentacon Six to Pentax PK
(this one: Arax Photo | Accessories for medium format cameras and lenses.)
All Pentacon Six compatible lenses can be used.
Condition: Good (AB), only used a few times

- Pentacon Six lens 50mm f4 Carl Zeiss Jena Flektogon
including front and back covers
This is the last generation of medium format wide angle Flektogons made in the former GDR. Carl Zeiss optics at their best.
Condition: Good (B) Lenses are clear, no scratches or fungus. The metal parts show some scratches and a bit of rubbing on the rings.
THE SPOTS you see inside on the metal interior of the lens are often seen in this lens type. It seems to be imperfect coating of the interior metal parts.
This does not affect the lens or picture quiality in any way nor does it seem to produce particles.

Price for the set: 230 Euros + shipping payable via PayPal

I might also be interested in TRADING this set-up against one of the following lenses:
- Pentax DA Limited 15mm
- Pentax DA Limited 40mm
- Pentax DA Limited 70mm

Free bump on an excellent setup for serious tilt photography on Pentax! I've used the same combo for years now...

That CZJ lens is easily as sharp as my FA & DA Limiteds! I frequently shoot the combo without any tilt just for the pleasure of insane microcontrast!
