Zeiss 85mm f1.2 Contax/Yashica problems!
Sean Cheung posted a topic in Lenses & Lens AccessoriesI have a Zeiss 85mm f1.2 (50th anniversary) lens which originally had a Contax/Yashica mount. When I bought the lens it came with an Aaton mount. I want to install an EF conversion mount which I bought from Simmod, but it requires the original C/Y mount to be present, in order for it to attach to and I guess sit at the right height for flange distance etc. I've tinkered with making a shim/spacer out of a Canon lens cap, but it's not exactly as good as a nice machined metal part. And it requires me to find longer screws.. Anyway, my questions would be: 1) What is the correct distance from rear element of this lens to sensor/film plane? 2) Is there a way to source a C/Y mount for this particular lens? (Note it's quite a bit wider at the base than many potential "donor" contax lenses, I know because I've already destroyed a 50mm f1.7 *sorry) 3) Do spec sheets, blueprints, technical data or papers exist in a public domain for this particular lens? 4) Could someone please point me in the direction of a good resource for understanding how the C/Y mechanism works? I seem to have begun my lens *home servicing journey on a rather expensive lens, and I'm pulling a few too many hairs out with anxiety... Many thanks and hello!

If anyone comes across: 40mm T2.1 S/N: 6947336 85mm T2.1 S/N: 7280603 for sale anywhere, hopefully you'll be able to contact me. You could reach me at, PH: 780-424-4368, EM: firstname.lastname@example.org & Katrina at email@example.com We have a police report and are dealing with insurance, but would love to be able to get the ones from our original set back as they were deeply beloved by our film community. If anyone has any other places I could share this that would be greatly appreciated! Attached are photos of what the lenses look like (not our exact lenses, photos grabbed from Alan Gordons website.) Note that one of them will have a lens cap that says 16mm instead of 85mm.
