I'm looking to free up some gear to make room for new toys so these are up on the chopping block.

Carl Zeiss Jena 20mm f/2.8 - $260USD/$290CAD
I purchased this from an FM member about a year ago and it found its home on my Canon F-1 for most of the time.

The lens is in decent condition and the glass is spotless. The focusing is smooth and the aperture ring has firm stops. There is a bit of brassing on parts of the focus and aperture rings. It comes with both end caps.







Helios 40-2 85mm f/1.5 - SOLD
Yup, the one and only! I've held off on selling this for a long time because it's such a unique lens that makes quite the collectable. Unfortunately the more I think about it, I just don't use it enough to justify keeping it so I am hoping the next loving owner will find a good use for it. I'll let its reputation speak for it's image quality (ie: dreamy bokeh). I can confirm that when stopped down, this lens is sharp sharp sharp!

I assure you the condition of this lens is flawless. There are no scratches, marks, or wear on the glass, barrel, focusing and aperture rings. This lens looks practically brand new. It even comes with the original accessories: front and rear caps, leather case (leather even smells new), the three filters, as well as (what I believe to be) the birth certificate for the lens.

Also included is a M42-EOS adapter and a (knock off) Canon end cap. If you do not want the adapter and end cap, please take off $10USD/$12CAD.


Buyer covers Paypal (+3% for US, +4% for CAN). For Canadian buyers, I also do (and prefer) EMT.
Buyer pays shipping. I will ship anywhere.

I am also looking for a Voigtlander rangefinder, particularly a Bessa R2M or R3M. If you have one for trade, or even some lenses for one, something can be worked out.

I've bought and sold lenses and bodies on FM before (same username), but not here and my eBay account is "goodfellawiseguy". I encourage you to do a background check on me so that you are confident I am an honest person to deal with.
You can PM me, but you're more likely to reach me sooner via email.
Generally, the first person who commits to a purchase has priority, however I do have the right to choose the buyer.

    The Jena's back up for grabs and I now have a spare M42-EOS adapter and (fake) Canon end cap I will include with it for an extra $10.

    Edit: Now the Jena's been sold.
