Full Frame Lenses: Zeiss Distagon T* 28mm f/2 ZK and Super Tak 50/1.4 (8 element)

Zeiss Distagon T* 2/28mm ZK manual focus lens - $800 plus shipping SOLD
Vivitar 28mm f/2.8 lens PKA - $20 plus shipping
Super Takumar 50mm f/1.4 manual focus M42 mount lens - $50 plus shipping --> SOLD

The Zeiss is an incredible lens, a very solid chunk of metal and glass that produces fantastic results on APS-c digital, and I can imagine will perform as well as just about anything in its focal length on full frame. It is the sharpest lens in this range I have ever used, maintaining good sharpness even when used wide open. Color, contrast and rendering are all excellent. If this lens was auto-focus you could never pry it out of my hands, and even as it is I will probably regret the sale. My copy is in very good condition with only minor signs of use. Comes with box, hood and original caps. Shipping on this baby will run $30 in the US, more elsewhere, as I will only send it insured.

The Super Takumar is the coveted earlier 8 element version, the one they designed to go up against Zeiss but had to phase out because it was too expensive to make. Performance is excellent although this copy is a little beat up. The aperture ring feels a little loose (but works fine) and there is a number engraved on the rear lens body. The glass is clear apart from some minor dust. Should be a nice normal lens on FF, makes for a nice portrait length on APS-c. I don't have caps or PK adapter to include, but I will wrap it well to protect the elements, and include a Pentax skylight filter too. Shipping is only $5 on this one, in the US.

International shipping is available, please ask about rates to your country. I won't mark as a "gift" for customs purposes, sorry. PayPal is the preferred payment method although I will consider other methods if you strongly prefer. They can be returned if not as described for a full refund, but please read the description carefully and if you have specific concerns, please ask questions first. I will be making a couple of other FS threads, so if you want to browse and maybe combine shipping, let me know.

Thanks! Nick

Another lens for sale

I have a Cosina-made Vivitar 28 f/2.8mm I'd like to sell as well. Manual focus but with the "A" position. Has a Ricoh contact but it isn't the sort of pin that gets stuck, just a rounded ball. Exterior shows some moderate signs of use but glass is clear beyond a few dust spots. No caps, again, but I will put on a skylight filter to protect the front. A very nice performer for only $20 plus shipping, $5 in the US. Should do well on full frame. Thanks for looking, Nick
