    Hi,

    I hate to do that but I have too many lenses and need to let some of them go, hard as it it... Here are the first ones, just checking here before going to ebay... All prices include insured shipping and Paypal in the US. I am happy to send abroad but would like to adjust the postage for that. Pictures will follow if needed, here are just the descriptions for now:

    1) Leica Macro Elmarit R 60/2.8 3-cam incl. 1:1 adapter

    Beautiful lens, I always hate selling Leica lenses. Lens has light external signs of use but the glass is in excellent conditions, all rings move smoothly, comes with the adapter that turns it into a 1:1 macro lens. With the 60mm length it also works as a nice mid-length tele on m43, especially the G/GH models, but for many this is a reference lens for macro work. New price $549 shipped in the US

    2) Schneider Robot set: Xenon 40/1.9, Xenon 75.3.8, m43 adapter

    I love Schneider lenses, but again, something must go. The 40mm Xenon is a beautiful small but well-made lens, smaller than the Konica 40/1.8 pancake as far as I know. But it is a bit heavier since it is just a small hunk of metal and glass. Rings move smoothly, the lens is overall in excellent condition, but it has just the tiniest bit of haze or cloudiness. You can use it perfectly fine as it is, but if I kept it, I would eventually have it cleaned for optimum results. Comes with an aftermarket front cap and a metal hood of which I am not 100% sure that it is the original one. Oh, it's the earlier silver/chrome version.

    The 75/3.8 is probably one of the smallest 75mm lenses you can get - not the fastest, but a beautiful old lens. Overall in very good condition, light signs of use, glass without any major issues that I can see. This is the chrome version. I also have a black one but that has a few more external signs of use and the focus ring is a bit loose for my taste - no limitation in function whatsoever, just could be smoother and more dampened. The glass is also in good condition. Buyer can choose between the chrome and the black one.

    The adapter is Hawk's 2-part Robot adapter that, if you take the Robot flange out, also works as c-mount adapter. But if you want to use both formats, I would leave this one as it is, it's too easy to loose the miniature screws that hold it together.

    The last 40mm Xenon sold for $235 on ebay and I have seen them going higher, the adapter alone is $70+. New price $300 shipped in the US

    3) Contax G Zeiss Sonnar 90/2.8 incl. m4/3 adapter SOLD

    There is more, but these are the top items, I think... Thanks for checking,

    Stefan

    P.S. I am planning to buy a Panasonic 100-300 lens, but if someone has a good copy and wants to trade, I am open for that - one can always try ;)

    No problem, just keep looking, Kosta. If you take them all, I'll throw in a c-mount lens ;)

    I'm interested in one of the contax G adaptors. Are you willing (able) to sell one of them separately? Is one of them more effective than the other?

    Thanks

    Hi Lincoln, PT sent. I would love to wait and see for a few days if anybody is interested in the lens-adapter combo, but then I'll be happy to sell an adapter (or both) separately.

    Hi, just bumping this up with lower prices (see first post). Between grant deadlines and other things I just can't get my act together with selling my lenses, but I'll keep trying :)

    I have a whole list of others I will be selling, and I may have someone who will put them up on ebay for me in the next few weeks. Lenses include lots of c-mounts (10mm Kern, 25mm Wollensak, Canon etc. - maybe an Angenieux 25/0.95; several excellent mid-range ones (75mm Kern Makro Switar, Angenieux, Navitar) and beautiful longer ones like 150mm Macro Yvar, 150mm Taylor & Hobson, 150mm Schneider etc); Pentax 110 18, 24, & 50mm; some older 135mm lenses (Steinheil, Zeiss Sonnar); a 200/4 Hexanon and more. Working on a price list right now, if anything catches your attention, please let me know.

    Hi again, just a quick update:

    Contax G Sonnar is sold.

    Available are still:

    - 60/2.8 Leica Elmarit with 1:1 adapter at $549 (description see above)
    - Robot set of Schneider 40/1.9, 75/3.8 and m4/3 adapter, new price $300 shipped in the US (description see above)
    - Contax G - m4/3 adapter, silver, outer ring Lenswerk adapter, $50 shipped
    - Pentax 110 set of 50/2.8, 24/2.8, 18/2.8 lenses plus camera body, $60 shipped
    - older Zeiss Sonnar 135/4, chrome preset version, works fine, back lens is clear, front lens has a 3mm dirt rim on the inside - I bought it as mint- but it clearly isn't. Still nice as a good tele on a sunny day, $50m shipped.

    I'll be happy to ship anywhere for adjusted postage prices.
