Zeiss 35mm f2 ZK Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Zeiss 35mm f2 ZK

Asking Price
849.00 or 875.00 USD

Item Location
Easter PA (United States)

Item Description
Those of you who are interested in this lens likely already know about it. It is the native Zeiss Pentax ZK mount (discontinued) that is fully chipped for all Pentax dslrs. It is "as new" with all caps, hood, papers, box etc. It has seen minimal time on the camera (fewer than fifty actuations) and is in absolutely pristine condition. No marks, no scratches--nothing.

As for performance: I owned both this lens and the highly regarded 31mm ltd. (I have already sold that lens.) In my view, this lens blows the 31mm ltd out of the water. it out resolves it, has better micro contrast, and it has that saturated Zeiss colour. (This is an outstanding example of this lens.) Its only liability (for some) is its lack of auto-focus.

If you want a lens with a 'normal' fov (on aps-c sensors) that can actually take advantage of your K-3' (or A7's) resolving power, this is it. And remember: these are no longer made, there are few out there, and they'll likely never be made again.

I have listed two prices: $849 for check or money order; $875 for Paypal. (Current price for Nikon mount at Adorama and B & H is $1,117 USD.)

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?

Are you selling or trading this item?

I have a ZK 35/2. This is a stunningly good lens. If this is a good copy as the seller states then my advice, don't hesitate if you have been looking at them.

The ZK 35 really rewards you. Have a look on my Zenfolio site if you want to see some examples of what it gives.

I have no knowledge of, or connection to Byrd, just love using this lens - it is my clear favourite.
