Zeiss Contax N 85 f/1.4 Conurus EOS Converted (RARE AND SPECIAL)

Price: $1900.00 OBO (REDUCED A BUNCH!)
Payment method: PayPal
Item condition: 9+ Shows little or no signs of wear
Shipping instructions: Fedex 2-day

I am finally leaving Canon for Sony and the EOS mount isn't as friendly to adapt as I'd like. Therefore, it's with a heavy heart that I offer up this special lens. I understand that selling this lens is a lot like selling a very unique automobile: the right buyer must be found - right place/right time and all that. Therefore, I am hanging onto my 6D until this lens sells. This IS a lens that you can justify buying or keeping a camera specifically for!

This is a legendary lens. Quite rare and originally designed to be used with the Contax N autofocus system, it soon found cult status as arguably the best portrait lens ever made. I don't have the credentials to make that claim but it renders portraits far better than anything I've ever shot with. In fact, the margin between it and my second best (85L) is not close.

This lens is in wonderful condition. So beautiful. It includes the Caps, Case, Box and hood. I'm including a NOS hood I bought after obtaining the lens. I paid $2500 for the lens a couple of years ago and $300 for the hood = $2800. I sold it once, regretted it and bought it back. I'm asking $1900 but I'm also taking offers but be real.

Check my feedback on FM and POTN (same user id)

The pictures are representative of the condition both body and glass (near mint) and there's just a slight amount of micro-dust around the outer edge inside the elements. Hard to see, a non-factor image-wise, but disclosed nonetheless. Smile

For those who do not know, the Conurus conversion allows the lens to auto focus with any EOS camera! Please bone up on this conversion if you are interested. The conversion allows micro-adjustments at 3 different distances. This is outside of the micro-adjustment through your Canon camera. Because of the nature of this sale, your feedback and familiarity of this glass will play a role in the sale. I want a no muss-no fuss transaction.

Trades might include other epic (but manual focus) glass. I may also be interested in Zeiss ZF glass or Sony/Zeiss specific glass (with AF).
