    Zeiss 18mm F4 ZM - 6-bit coded, silver

    Silver Zeiss 18mm F4 ZM lens with coded lens mount, boxed with papers etc in mint condition

    Fantastic lens in stunning condition and very well cared for. I love this lens which is incredibly sharp but need to sell it to fund a my newly acquired WATE

    I have sold a lens recently on this forum and have used eBay for many years with 100% positive feedback. I have also sold several items recently on talkphotography.co.uk with excellent feedback - both sites under the user id daveproctor.

    Please send me a message if you want any further information

    Price 775 including UK delivery - represents big saving on new price of 1089 plus cost of coding the lens

    Bump for a trustworthy buyer & seller. Of course, since he's also been my UK bank manager I feel somewhat obliged to say that (True btw ...)

    Seriously though - Dave is a straight shooter who takes fastidious care of his gear.

    Price dropped to 700 - Cost new is 1089 plus approx 150 to get the correct flange a coding

    Forgot to mention that IR filter also included

    Dave, please tell me if you'd prefer I removed these images.

    I'd jump on this if the price were right. One just sold on here for $850 USD 4 weeks ago (~550).

    Daniel - thanks for the pictures, it is a stunning lens.

    odannyboy - I don't think the asking price for this is unreasonable based on UK prices where it is 56% of the new price including the coded flange. At the price you're quoting I'd rather keep hold of it as a backup. I don't know what the condition of the lens you refer to was but this is boxed, like new with the coded flange plus the IR filter plus the original flange

    Just a reminder folks -- it is poor etiquette to comment on a price in any FS thread. If the OP is asking too much, then the free market system will handle that. If you're worried another buyer may pay too much, that is THEIR problem, not yours. Also, if you want to negotiate, then contact the seller offline, not online in public.

    Let's keep this clear going forward, okay?
