    FS Contax 645, lenses, Phase P30+, more

    Please contact me via email.

    I am moving away from the Contax 645 system that I acquired. It's spectacularly wonderful stuff, but I am not using it enough and I am just not that good a photographer. I have GAS (gear acquisition syndrome), and now need to treat it by selling all these great items. All in excellent condition unless otherwise noted. All prices include shipping and insurance; add 3% for paypal.

    645 body with caps and neck strap. Minor scuffs. Please note you will have to use the prism finder or flash bracket MSB-1 to use a flash gun. $500

    Waist level finder with cap. $425

    Contax 45-90mm with hood and pouch. $2000

    Contax 140mm no hood, with box and pouch. $1300

    Contax mutar 1.4x. $1850

    Zeiss Planar Hasselblad 110 f/2.0 with hood, box and pouch. $2300

    Kindai Hasselblad adapter works great with the Hassy 110. $250

    Contax TLA 200 flash. $100

    Metz SCA 3802 module for Metz 54 MZ3 or MZ4. $75

    Sunpak auto 120J TTL flash with battery pack and YC-1D adapter. The AA battery compartment has some corrosion, but it still works great. You will probably use the external battery pack anyway. Minor scuffs. $400

    Phase One P 30+ digital back with hard padded case, dual charger, 3 batteries, C1 mf software, and all misc items. This baby has the Value Added package, effective to April, 2010. $14,000.

    Please contact me via email, much easier than PM's for selling all these items. Please do not use PM.

    Tom,
    I'll take that 45-90 zoom for $2k provided it's in mint or near mint condition. Please email me at zaknat at mac dot com with your address and I'll get you out a check.

    Hassy and Contax 45-90 are sold.

    Still have the adapter for the Hassy, though.

    Latest updates:
    Flash bracket is pending.

    These items appear to have been seriously overpriced, so let's get them sold.

    Mutar $1100

    Contax 140mm $900

    Contact me with any questions or offers. Email preferred.

    I have an offer that includes a trade for the Phase back. I would prefer a cash only transaction. I will be accepting that offer soon unless I find a cash buyer.

    So here is my deal. I will sell the back and include UPS overnight delivery for my reduced price of $12,500. I will accept wire transfer or paypal eCheck. Regular paypal add 3%.

    Please contact me with questions.

    email preferred
    [email protected]

    Here's an interesting thought. Instead of spending a lot to ship and insure, buyer could fly here (Minneapolis) in the morning, check out the back, and fly home in the evening. I'd help pay airfare since I wouldn't need to pay shipping. Several obvious advantages to this.

    Soon, Victor, soon. We hope. The ice is off nearly all the lakes in the state!

    YOU should be the happy one, with a P30+ and a contax!

    Oh, well, if you stick with mamiya, at least you can get a an adapter for hasselblad lenses!

    Am I prejudiced?

    Victor I don't need any Hassy lenses to get great images from the glass. Trust me these are working extremely well

    Do you guys recall a book called The Peter Principle? That book's theory says that in an organization, an employee rises to their level of incompetence. To summarize, a competent employee be repeatedly promoted to the next higher level, until they get promoted up to the level at which they are no longer competent. I feel that way about my photography. I've been doing very well with my Canons, learning more and getting better. But I promoted myself up to MF where my competence ended. I could tough out a few good pics, but to achieve real competency would require a bigger effort than I can muster. I love what this equipment can do, and I know I will miss it to some extent, but I will also be comforted in the knowledge that I mostly know what I'm doing with my Canon gear.
