  1. Chr @Chris Squires yes they sure are. been meaning to relist them, and to post them on facebook but hadnt gotten around to it yet. but yes...still available.
  2. Hi yall. As title says, I have a couple Superspeed singles available, for those of you who need to replace a broken lens, complete a Superspeed set, or maybe complement a set of Standard Speeds. 25mm T1.3 Mk2 Superspeed: Has some scratches on outer surface of the rear element, but in testing the lens out I have seen no effects on image quality...the lens is still sharp as heck. Only thing that can really be seen in terms of effects is some diagonal streak effects to the flare when a light is shone directly towards the lens. That's it. If you want to get the lens back to 100%, Duclos has some rear elements in stock for 25mm Mk2's, and they quoted me $1500 plus $150 for installation and re-collimation. Aside from these issues with the rear element, the rest of the glass is perfect. Focus ring is starting to get a little stiff so it could use a standard lube job eventually, but it's plenty usable as is for now. 85mm T1.3 Mk2 Superspeed: Optics are pretty much perfect. No problems with the glass whatsoever. Focus ring is quite stiff however, so it could use a standard CLA. Ridiculously sharp lens, tested it out on my Z6 and it's easy to see why it's so loved. Prices: 25mm Mk2 Superspeed: $9000 85mm Mk2 Superspeed: $10000 All prices include shipping and paypal fees. Pics:
  3. As title says, I have a 50mm Nipponscope (the series 1 version, synchro-focus). I'm looking for other focal lengths. Either Series 1 or Series 2, though I guess I'd actually prefer the synchro-focus series 1 to match my 50mm. Any mount is fine. Damage acceptable as long as it's repairable. Here's my 50:
  4. Well, never mind...that was fast. LENS IS NOW SOLD!
  5. I should also mention: Price of $14k is already including paypal fees and shipping! So 14k out the door. Selling to get some funds for another purchase...otherwise I'd probably keep this thing forever!
  6. As title says, 18mm T2.8 K-35 in original BNCR mount for sale...complete your K35 or FD set...or complement a K35 zoom, which was the original purpose of this lens. Has some cleaning marks on the rear element and a very light scuff to the coating, maybe from an improperly fit rear lens cap. See last image attached. Very minor, can't imagine it has much of an effect on image, and can easily be fixed if you want to do so, by any competent lens repair house (duclos, optitek, etc.) Housing has signs of use. Other than that...the optics are quite good, coatings looking in through the front are in great shape, aperture functions well, focus ring turns without issue etc. Comes with original screw-on lens hood, and matching screw on front cap. Perfect candidate to be rehoused, or just PL mount it and use as is. $14k Priced $1,500 less than the two I've seen sold over the past couple years, which were both at $15,500 (saw both listings on facebook).
  7. up to the top again. Hoping a 30mm or 40mm are out there. I know they must be somewhere...
  8. @Marcel Zyskindit's possible. Though comparing the images to my K-35 35mm T1.4, the rear element looks a little bit smaller, and my K-35 has 15 aperture blades whereas this has 9. We'll see for sure after it arrives in a couple days. Here's a peek at the coatings on the front...looks pretty, and multicoated. My second thought was "SuperSpeed Baltars" which were made for Mitchell, F&B Ceco, and others, but...those are listed as F1.2 for the 35mm from what little I can find.
  9. Ohhh boy. Just got a 35mm from the same set...TODD-AO 35 "ULTRA-FAST" 35mm F1.3: Anyone able to identify what this may have been based on? Is it Zeiss? Canon? At F1.3 I doubt it's photo glass.
  10. bump. other offer is still on hold until the person has enough in their biz account, so this is still available if someone else gets to it first.
  11. I know nobody really seems to use these, but I'm trying to complete a set... Looking only for Astro-Berlin's GAUSS Tachars, NOT the Pan-Tachars. Gauss Tachars are all F2.0. I already have the 25mm V.S. Gauss-Tachar, and the 40mm Gauss-Tachar. Need the 32, 50, 75 and 100. The later, the better (serial numbers of 5XXXX and above, preferably.) Thanks!
  12. It was sold to me as Todd AO, will see for sure as soon as I get it. As for the Todd AO 65/70 Cookes...I have the 55mm DuoPanchro 🙂, been searching for the 30 and 40 for a while now.
