    Minty Zeiss 50mm ZM C Sonnar in Chrome with Hood (Price drop every day)

    I'm pulling this lens out to list it separately from my other group listing as it's my only one left.

    This one is like-new condition, with hood, in beautiful chrome. This package is $1280 new. Selling today for $1000 and I'm dropping it $10 per day from here on out until it sells. Please don't PM me asking for a lower price as the new price will be avail starting at midnight Pacific time. Happy to post it worldwide for established members here but shipping will be an extra $40 USD.

    Price listed here includes paypal and shipping. I have great feedback here, on FM (username macjonny1), etc.

    SO, price for 12/11 will be $1000 and go from there!

    Thanks for the comments.

    In my reading technically Zeiss had all of these optimally set for f/2.8 but mine has worked well wide open. I can't guarantee this is calibrated for such on your M9 or whatever but DAG can certainly calibrate it for you for a minimal cost if you want. Attached is a pic of one of my kiddos taken wide open on this. Focus may not be 100% perfect but I was very pleased!

    I can't believe someone hasn't jumped on this. Fantastic price for a classic lens! I'm after a Leica cron myself otherwise I'd buy this. GLWS!

    Sheesh, what a great deal. This is an amazing lens. If I hadn't already owned one, I'd be running to snag this. Great seller, by the way!

    Can I buy a 2nd copy just because it's so cheap?

    Just to clarify I'm keeping price at $940. I will make it clear here on this thread if I decide to lower price more. Price is firm at this time. Please don't send low-ball PMs, such as the "will you sell for $900 with free shipping to UK" like I just got. It's cheap enough as it is. if you want a great deal here you go but no more low ball emails. If I decide to continue to lower it you will know on this thread.

    "Selling today for $1000 and I'm dropping it $10 per day from here on out until it sells"

    Well, it was a nice idea anyway.

    Yeah, not a good idea with the slow economy....

    nonetheless, it's $160 below my initial asking price and $340 below new price. It's good enough and in no hurry to dump a like-new lens. It can wait until someone wants this lens at a great price or I'll just keep it.

    So, would that be a sell price of $890?

    Nevermind buyer backed out. I'm going to go for most "views" in the listing so actually I don't want it to sell quickly now!

    Anyway, price is $930, shipped and paypal'd. I mentioned earlier I suspended the daily price drop due to it being a general bad idea in this economy.


    SO! THIS FANTASTIC LENS IS STILL AVAIL!

    I'm actually going to resume my daily price drops for now. However, daily price drop is going to be now set at $6.13.

    To start things off I'm dropping the price now:

    SALE FOR $923.87!
