    MS Optical Carl Zeiss Contax G 28mm f/2.8 M Mount

    This is a lens you don't see everyday. I have for sale a Contax G 28mm f/2.8 lens converted by MS Optical to M mount. Lens has been used sparingly. Always in the Contax leather pouch when not used. Comes with front and rear cap, Contax hood with hood cap, and Contax leather pouch. Lens is in "as-new" condition. Everything works well as it should. Glass is perfect. Shipping and all fees included for CONUS buyers. International buyers add $40.00.

    $1100.00

    Shipping is USPS Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation and Insurance for purchase price.

    out of curiosity - what's it like to focus? do you grab the ribbed ring just below the aperture ring? (I was keen to try a 21mm 2.8)

    There is a focus tab, but I used the front ring to focus.

    Also out of curiosity: What are the advantages of this version over the regular M-mount version ($1005 new)?

    I can't comment on that since I've never shot the ZM(?) version.

    Last price drop before ebaying the lens. Staying at $1000 for the next day.

    OK, I really don't want to deal with ebay just now. I'll lower price to $975 shipped in CONUS. $1015 for international buyers.

    Not sure how to address this--I've given my paypal info to several people who said they will buy the lens. Not one paid, obviously, nor have they got back to me letting me know they changed their mind. Please, if you truely want to purchase the lens, then contact me. I have great feedback at fredmiranda, as well as here, RFF, and ebay.
