    FS: Contax 400mm F4 EOS Mount

    Contax 400mm N Mount converted to EOS. It includes the lens, tripod mount, hood and original bag. This lens was Brand New, when sent for conversion, and I have used it once to test it. I am selling because I have two, and it is a waste to have it sitting on the shelf. Price $4999 + PP/Shipping US or CAD

    There are only 16 of these in the world!

    In the interest of full disclosure: there is one small matk on the bottom of the tripod foot, I did it when I tested the lens.

    This is the best F/4.0 400mm for Canon there is, you get full AF and auto aperture, just like a Canon Lens. It is in New Condition. The only flaw is that the box sustained some water damage after conversion - Lens was NOT in the box. I will pack the lens in the original dry box and box the whole set in a bigger box for shipping.

    I don't shoot Canon (well, except at work), but this thing is quite svelte and deserves the bump. That's just one sexy lens.

    I dug up a photo that was shot with my copy. The one for sale is as sharp. This is a finished file that was sharpened, but it does show the lenses wide open performance.
