    Zeiss Contax 85mm 1.4 with Canon Confrim adapter

    Today my lovely Zeiss / Contax 85mm 1.4 made in Germany goes up for sale. I'm sad to see it go but these things happen. This lens is sharp smooth and fantastic. Its clean on scratches, clean of fungus, clean of oil, its plain clean. It has all the great contrast and color and sharpness you get from a Zeiss lens. I've mounted an Fotodiox basic c/y to eos adapter to it and I've installed a Optix 5 AF confrim chip to it that has been programed for this 85mm lens and I've tuned the focus adjustment on it for my Canon 7D. You might have to adjust it for your camera so I've included all of the instruction for this hip. This chip makes all the difference, without it this lens i s quite difficult to focus in the view finder. I also have the original rear lens cap plus a Canon Rear lens cap for the adapter, original front lens cap and paper work, sorry no box or other packaging. I have had this lens for about 4 months now and I've enjoyed it, but I'm thinking of selling off all of my Canon gear and jumping ship, I'm just not sure what ship to board (right now its a Panasonic GF1, but tomorrow it might be anything else). This will make a great addition to anyone's bag and is in my opinion a must have for video.

    Here are a some photos of everything that for sale:

    I'm asking for $575.00 shipped us paypal gift for everything. Also will listen to trades, I'm looking for Zeiss ZM's or Leica M's or Pana/Leica 20mm 1.7, Konica 50/1.2, etc. We can work on trades a+/- cash, let me know.


    If you have any questions or need any other photos please just ask.
    Thanks
