  1. Bump —— Prices lowered to $1400 each / $2500 as a set!
  2. All images here: https://imgur.com/a/Pqnv1P2 Zeiss 12mm T1.3 Super Speed Mk1: $1500 OBO Mechanically excellent; aperture has no oil on blades, focus turns smooth and even. Has a hard PL mount conversion, as well as a 0.8 pitch follow focus gear installed. An 80mm front ring is also installed. Optically, the lens is perfectly clear. No haze, fungus, etc. It does have a few coating marks (shown in the photos below) around the edge of the second element. I am sure they could be removed if the lens were serviced. These marks have no discernible effect on the image but I have lowered the price accordingly to reflect the imperfections. Zeiss 10-100 T2 (standard 16mm): $1500 OBO Mechanically excellent. Aperture has no oil, focus and aperture are smooth and even. A really beautiful lens which matches the IQ and look of the s16 Super Speeds. Can focus up to the front element in macro mode. Incredibly sharp but retains the great vintage zeiss character and is par focal. Is a native Arri B mount, but I will include a B-PL adapter with the sale. The lens is geared with a 0.8 pitch on the focus and zoom. The lens covers 16mm only from 10-25 and then from 25-100 covers the entire S16 image circle! Optically, the lens is excellent, with no haze or fungus. The only exception is the front element which has numerous light coating scratches. These don't affect image quality unless you are shooting at > T8 into direct sunlight at a wide angle. And even then, they aren't very noticeable and the effect is not displeasing. I have tried to photograph these scratches as best as I could. Have priced the lens according to it's faults; haven't seen one of these sell below $2k in a while. Will do a package deal for both lenses— Thanks for looking!
  3. Bump. Price lowered to $1000 + shipping & fees.
  4. Mint 9/10 condition Optar Illumina 9.5 T1.3. Bought it for a project that never came to fruition. This is a great lens, very similar in image quality to a Zeiss Super Speed (I tested this along side my Zeiss 12mm T1.3). The lens is absolutely mint, no marks on the glass at all, buttery focus/aperture, and factory caps. Cosmetically, there are only three tiny (less than 1mm) bright marks on the focus gear ring. The aperture gear ring is blemish free. PM me for more info, images, etc. I'm fairly new to the forum but can provide feedback from the fred miranda forum, ebay, etc. And, will cover PayPal fee for the added safeguard. $1250 including shipping and PayPal fees to CONUS OBO. Will ship via USPS insured.
