    Voigtlander 35mm f1.2 + 2 filters

    I picked up this lens last month from a local seller for use on an NEX-5. This just isn't the setup for me, so it's all getting sold. The lens is super clean with no dust, fungus, haze, or other marks. The front and rear elements are flawless and the focusing helical is super smooth.

    I'm also including a B+W UV/IR filter and a Hoya ND8 neutral-density filter. I bought this lens without the box, but I do have the original hood and cap.

    I'd also consider trades for either a Nikon dSLR body (D90, or D300 + cash from me, or comparable Canons) or Nikon/Canon zooms (Nikon 17-55 f2.8 + a bit of cash, for example, and comparable Canons). Basically I'm wanting to return to a dSLR setup ASAP.

    $750 shipped/insured in the US.

    In terms of a trade, here's one option: I'm looking for a D700 body, so I'll include the NEX-5 + 16mm, the Voigtlander Nokton 35mm f1.2 lens + filters, and cash for the D700 body. As long as the D700 is in good mechanical condition I'll take it. We can negotiate the amount of cash in question. Sound fair?

    The lens is unmodified, as far as I know. How might I be able to tell? It's a Leica mount, obviously, but I don't know how to tell whether the mod you reference has been done.

    I really wouldn't know how the modified mount on the VC 35/1.2 would look like compared to the unmodified ones. The simplest way if ever, is to mount it on an M8. If it doesnt mount well and hard to lock, can not focus to infinity, then its not modified... that is if you have a chance to mount it on an M8 It will cost $150 to have it modified at cameraquest if it wasnt bought from them, otherwise its free modification you just have to spend on shipping both ways

    FYI, if you look at the thread linked below, there's a picture of what a modified lens looks like. As far as I can tell, it's the "stepped-in" bit that the red arrow points to in the picture that identifies the lens as being M8 compatible. Be sure to click on the photo for a larger version!

    Links to pics, as requested:

    voigt rear http://min.us/icDv8o.JPG

    With regard to the modification for the M8 some asked about, I looked at the link mathomas included above. My lens has the same stepped-in piece in the image below.

    So why did you not like the Sony NEX + Voigtlander setup? What were it's limitations?

    I am interested in this lens, would you do a trade/partial trade for a Canon 70-200 F4L in like new state?

    Cheers,
    John

    Did someone on this thread end up buying the lens? Just curious, since the OP has not responded to my PM (yeah, I'm impatient that way).

    Thanks...

    Hmm... should I take the no reply as in not interested in the Canon lens and trade? :-)

    Is the lens still available or have you already sold it?

    I tried send a message a couple days ago but non response. Perhaps out of town, since we are approaching a holiday.

    Hi, sorry-- have been not on the forum until now. Sale is pending at the moment, but still waiting to hear from buyer about PayPal and shipping options. If sale falls through I will respond to PMs in the order I got them.
