[SOLD] Zeiss Planar T*85mm F1.4 Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Zeiss Planar T*85 F1.4

Asking Price
975 CAD

Item Description
Absolutely lovely chunk of glass and metal, just wish I had a real need or use for it.

Wonderful Zeiss coloring, saturated, yet neutral, great skin-tones. I use this lens indoors for portraits, and the Voigt 90 outdoors. Manual focus and I indoors are not the best of friends right now.

Too expensive to sit in my closet. Especially when I need (need) a Zeiss 50 Macro, and also a Voigtlander 180 when I can find one, maybe the Voigtlander 20 when it is out, unless I splurge on the Zeiss 21 instead, not sure yet.

Comes in original box, packaging, original caps and sturdy metal hood.

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?

Even though I'm only in Toronto half the year, it seems like this is where I buy and sell all my lenses and gear. I'd like to give the local folks here in Canada first nibs at the equipment, then if no interest, then I'll re-list with USD prices.

Please send me a private message if interested in the item!

I am withdrawing the item for sale.

Image quality too good to let this lens go. It isn't a practical all-around lens due to the precise manual focusing required from it. But for bridal and specialty portraits, this lens is worth its weight and cost (so to speak). I would wind up buying another one later at a loss, so I'll save some money in the long-run by just keeping this one, and getting my next lens when I can do so without shooting myself in the foot (or lens pouch)!

Thanks for the interest and free bumps!
