A nice pair Edd, with hoods too.
The 24/2.8 & 50/1.4 are also nice, and they're all similar in size.
Not sure if you know this, the aperture lever when pushed into it's locked position, causes the aperture ring to stay active at all times.

Hi LightShow,

James: Thanks...I had wanted this combo for a while, and with the lens hoods no less! The gentleman had quite a collection, starting at 7.5mm going out to the 800mm f5.6L, which were all sold to a single buyer (from Tahoe) a couple of days after my purchase. He had the FD 15mm f2.8 full-frame fish-eye (internal selectable filters), which I should have picked up at the same time... Kicking myself now over that one...

Crosspost from Zeiss discussion thread:



Newest addition: 85 Planar. Like it so far.

The only other FD SSC's I'm really after(next year) are the 55 & 85 asph lenses, and maybe the 20.

Hi.
I have an old, but nice, Canon 50MM F1.8 R lens (missing a front element , etc). I would give it to you , if you want to pay shipping from PA. to SF.

Hasselblad CF 80/2.8 in very nice shape. I will use this with my 2000 FC/M in C mode. There is something special about this camera, and even though my Rolleiflex 6008i is better in every quantifiable way except weight, I will keep the Hassie for the occasional walk-about.

Not really alternative since I use them on my dads old pentax ME:
Pentax SMC-M 28mm f/2.8.



On the picture from small to big:

Pentax SMC-M 28mm f/2.8
Pentax SMC-M 28mm f/3.5
Pentax SMC-M 40/2.8 pancake
Pentax SMC-M 50mm f/1.7
Pentax SMC-M 50mm f/2
Pentax SMC-M 135mm f/3.5.


The 50/2 is my dads with I used for many years on the ME. He never was able to buy more SMC-M lenses when he was young since they were to expensive for him when he got me. So I'm now trying to find as many as possible since their prices are extremely cheap.

Quality is so so, but great fun to use. Hope the leica M arrives soon so I can use them on digital.

maybe, i'll have to check on the design of that lens (not familiar with it). i'm really hoping the rokkor 55/1.7 will be easy to use because i love it's focus ring.

Just picked up an ELMAR-R 35-70mm/3.5 E60 3 cam.
It's way sharper than my MD 35-70/3.5 Macro which is to be sold off.

Hi James. They were in pretty good shape (different sellers). I had the Fedar apart and it cleaned up just fine (removed a few small, internal grunge marks). I'm taking the Tessar in to the Camera Repair Centre to see if they can do an out patient operation on the rear element group. There's a bit of haze in there that might be in cement (in which case, it stays that way), or the elements could be separate and it can be cleaned. Either way, it'll be interesting to see how they perform on the Auto Bellows N.

I just bought a Vivitar 2x macro teleconverter for Nikon. I am going to remove the optics, as is all the rage, and use it as a focusing mechanism for my Zeiss 100MP.

Now all I need is some kind of bounce material for my flash, and I am ready to do some macro photography. Isn't there some white reflective surface with a bendable wireframe inside?
