Carl Zeiss Distagon T* F2.0 35mm ZK Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Carl Zeiss Distagon T* F2.0 35mm ZK

Asking Price

Item Location
Baltimore, MD (United States)

Item Description
Up for sale is my Carl Zeiss Distagon T* F2.0 35mm ZK, purchased Christmas 2011. It's been used on 5-8 photo trips out for somewhere in the range of <200 shots. I've treated it well and it comes with the original box (in good condition), papers, and a Quantaray 58mm UV filter which has been protecting the lens since day 1 (and has just now been removed so that the lens can fit in its box again). It also includes the original accessories (lens cap, rear/mount cap, and lens hood), as pictured.

The lens is about Excellent 96-97% condition. I was about to mark it Like New, but it has a ding on the barrel if inspected closely. One picture shows what looks scratches on the outside of the mount, but upon a repeated inspection, this was actually finger oil (read: the mount does not have scratches on it, it is like new).

Like the title said, I'm looking for $850 or a combination of cash and trade items (see list below). I'd like Paypal only please, I'll eat the fees.

I will ship anywhere in the US Priority with the postal service, with tracking and insurance for the price of the sale. I can ship to Canada, but you need to add $20 more to the cost of shipping (and I can't ship it tracked there, so it's not as awesome, but Canada is still cool in my heart).

I am willing to trade for any of the following:
  • Pentax DA * 16-50mm F2.8
  • Pentax DA * 50-135mm F2.8
  • Pentax DA 70mm F2.4 Limited (+ cash)
  • Pentax DA 17-70mm F4 AL (+ cash)
  • Pentax DA 16-45mm F4 ED AL (+ cash)

Again, I'm willing to hear offers, including combination offers not listed; I'm in the market for a K-mount lens with autofocus and focal length longer than 35mm.

Cheers and thanks for looking!

This is the most handy & versatile lens in ZK mount, IMHO.

Best of luck with the sale and everything but I just have to ask one thing, did you really use a "Quantaray 58mm UV filter" in front of the beautiful Zeiss lens?!

You don't have to answer of course, it just struck me as strange. I love my ZK lenses.

Yeah, I planned on upgrading to a B+W, but seeing as how I decided to move away from the lens, I don't really need to change for this one. It was more for protection to the front glass.
