[SOLD] Carl Zeiss Jena DDR Flektogon 35mm f/2.4 Close-focusing M42 Lens

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Carl Zeiss Jena DDR Flektogon 35mm f/2.4 Close-focusing M42 Lens

Asking Price
USD$190

Item Description
Up for sale is a CZJ DDR 35/2.4 in excellent, near-mint condition. There are only a couple tiny, hairline scratches on the front glass and some light dust that only shows up because of the direct flash. There's no fungus or other internal problems, and no deep scratches of any kind on the lens elements or body. It comes with a rear cap.

This lens is probably the sharpest lens I own, and the only reason I'm getting rid of it is because I duplicated the focal range with a purchase I made. It is truly legendary, and macro-focuses down to somewhere near 1:2 all in an extremely small body. It is the perfect "normal" focal length on an APS-C sensor.

Here's an "average" picture that I took with the lens:



And this is an image demonstrating the close-focusing feature, as well as extremely high resolution:



and here is a 100% crop:



All three pictures were taken by me with this exact lens, with no edits at all except resizing (and not on the 100% crop).

Here are pictures of the actual lens -- the direct flash does the beauty of the lens NO justice at all:
