  1. For Sale: DoP's personal set of classic Zeiss T2.1 Standard primes. Very complete 9-lens set in excellent condition: 16, 24, 32, 40, 50, 85, 100, 135mm T2.1/PL + rare 180mm T3. Asking US$ 44K.
  2. Hi Steve, my own opinion is to avoid those cheap $25-50.00 aluminum adapters. I have yet to find an accurate one. Fotodiox makes a respectable adapter, but they vary in accuracy by up to +/- .03mm. This means you must shim the lens to the adapter in the case of high speed lenses. I quality control them using gage blocks & a precision height gage on a granite surface plate. I send back the ones that are more than .01mm out. Right now, I have a dead-on Les Bosher stainless B to PL quick-release adapter ($ 285.00 + shipping) and a QC'd Fotodiox unit that is also dead-nuts zero ($ 195.00). PL rear caps: $ 18.00. Let me know if these interest you. Thanks !
