I added a Contax Distagon 28mm f2.8 MMJ and Vario-Sonnar 35-70mm f3.4 MMJ to my little Zeiss collection.

Picked up a GXR with viewfinder and M mount for next to nothing a week ago.

Realized I didn't have any lenses for it and in the search for a viable M mount lens I happened upon a Summilux R80/1.4 ... ...rummaged around in the miscellaneous box and dug out a Leica R - to M adapter and got in the car and picked up the lens on the way to work. Not quite what I had in mind but still.

The guy I got it from was well stocked... ...I got to fondle a 50/2 M Summicron Asph in the process. I had never seen one in the flesh before.

It was like feeling up a unicorn. But, I was quite happy to leave with the R80.

After asking you guys repeatedly about which macro lens to get, decided on the Leica R 60. Found one here on the B&S and decided to keep the purchase in house and help out the community. Got it with the extender as well, have to get used to how close it will allow me to focus. Slapped on a Metabones Leica R to E mount adapter and I'm set. The adapter is a little tight fit on the body but hopefully it'll loosen up a little bit after use. Looking forward to my very first Leica lens and my first real hand at macro photography, very excited. Hope I don't get too hooked on Leica R glass.

Wow! That a beast on the a7(r) with the extender and R-E mount adapter. Congrats on your purchase and cheers to your future R purchases. Muwahahaha (*evil laugh*)

I have recently picked up a Zeiss c/y 50 1.4 and a FD 35 t/s scc. So far I like them both.

Just paid for another Schneider Kreuznach f4.5 105mm Radionar lens.
This time, it's attached to a mint Franka Rolifix I 6x9 folder.
This will be great!

...resistance is futile and just be thankful you are tempted by L-R not L-M!

Congrats. I have the same combo and it rocks!

I haven't yet tried mine on my A7R, but it gives great results on the 5D III (which is very likely to be for sale soon).

Zeiss C/Y Tele-Tessar 200mm f4 MMJ, Olympus OM Zuiko 24mm f2.8 MC, and a Canon EF 16-35mm f4L IS (it's "alt" if I use it on a Sony, right?)

I got myself a Zeiss Otus 55/1.4 for Nikon. Secondhand in mint-condition for 2000 euros. Only 2 months old.

Good grief... do you need oven mitts to hold it?

No, everything is completely OK and legit. I got the original bill with it (with the sellers name on it). And I can easily find all the data of the seller on the internet (own website, flickr, facebook, etc.). And I met him personally.

So I can keep it with my bare hands.

But I am always surprised how easily people buy expensive stuff and than sell it short time after with a huge loss.

In the case of the Otus it was always quite clear to me that a loss of at least 40% is to be expected when trying to sell it secondhand. So I am not surprised with this price. It just doesn't sell for much more. At least where I live.
