    FS: Leica M and Contax/Yashica Lenses

    It's time to clean out some gear (and maybe make room for a couple of new pieces.) I moved exclusively to the Sony FE bodies earlier this year so it's time to get rid of my Leica M lenses. All lenses are in excellent condition and come with original Leica leather cases, front/rear lens caps, hoods, and boxes.

    The Zeiss Contax Yashica SLR lenses all include original boxes and front/rear lens caps. Lenses are the newest produced MM versions that have the newer T* Coatings, are identified by the last number of the aperture being green in color, and have circular aperture blades to prevent the infamous "ninja stars" in bokeh when stopped down. They provide classic rendering and are the least expensive way to get the "Zeiss Standard or Superspeed" look many videographers love. They are easily converted for use on Canon EOS cameras but I used them on Sony FE cameras to great effect for my uses. If you buy the who set I will throw in two Novoflex C/Y<->E Mount adapters and a Novoflex A-STAT for tripod mounting. More information on the lenses here.

    I will post additional pictures when I return home from my business trip on 16 December 2014 (next Tuesday) but am willing to hold any lenses in the order of response for serious prospective buyers. The prices include insured CONUS shipping and please add 3% for Paypal.

    Leica M 50/1.4 Summilux ASPH FLE (6-Bit) - $3300 OBO

    Leica M 35/2 Summicron ASPH W/UV-IR Filter Included (6-Bit Newest Version) - $2800 OBO

    Leica M 24/3.8 Elmar ASPH (6-Bit) - $2200 OBO

    Zeiss Contax Yashica 85/1.4 MMJ (comes with ND & Polarizing filter) - $700 OBO

    Zeiss Contax Yashica 135/2.8 MMJ - $350 OBO

    Zeiss Contax Yashica 180/ 2.8 MMJ FLE - $450 OBO

    ***Buy all 3 Contax Yashica Lenses and get all of the adapters thrown in free***

    2X Novoflex Contax Yashica <-> Sony (F)E Mount Adapters - $175 Each OBO

    Novoflex ASTAT-NEX - $150 OBO
