    Great Collection of Contax C/Y lenses for sale

    I am selling my prized collection of C/Y lenses. It took me 5 years to acquire these lenses. I hate to do it but my niche is landscape photography and I can no longer hike and carry the bag (back issues). It is time for someone else to own these. For those of you who are not familiar with these lenses, they were made with rare earth materials that you cannot use today. I have tested these lenses against the new Zeiss lenses and these c/y lenses are at least as good and some are better.

    * 35PC $1000 - The best 35mm shift lens ever made. Unshifted, the sharpest 35mm lens ever made. Great landscape lens - easy to set the horizon where you want it.
    * 21/2.8 $1600 - Known as the "King" back in the day for its superior performance
    * 28.2 $950 - Or the "Hollywood" lens for its frequent use in Hollywood
    * 100/2 Macro Planer $575 - Perhaps the sharpest C/Y lens of all. Check out the MTF's. Also a 1:1 macro which you can't get today
    * 35-70/3.4 $510 - Little Contax zoom. As sharp as some of the best primes under 55mm. Great walk around & wide angle lens. Comes with original box and bag.
    * 135/2.8 Sonnar $300 - Pretty sharp short telephoto

    Each lens comes with a C/Y to Canon adapter custom made by Pham Minh Son, a recognized expert of C/Y lenses. The adapters were made for specific C/Y lenses at specific thickness to ensure infinity focus. Each adapter also is chipped. These C/Y to Canon adapters are the best ever made and cost me $1000.

    These lenses are from a working photographer's kit. I've hand carried them all over the world. However, I paid about $8K for these lenses and have handled them with extreme care. All are in excellent or good+ condition with no issues.

    Price includes Paypal fees, UPS shipping anywhere in continental US.
