    Prices do not include shipping or paypal. Please add 3% paypal if used. I also accept personal check or USPS MO.

    1) Canon 17mm f4 TSE $1950
    I am selling the lense to get the 24 TS. The 17mm is too difficult to find a subject that's worthy to shoot, maybe because I suck. The optic is phenomenon. It is almost as sharp as my Zeiss 21mm and sharper than my Canon 24mm f1.4 MkII.
    The lense comes with cap, rear cap and pouch. I do not have the box or paper work. Glass is perfect, barrel is clean.

    2) Leitz 50mm Summicron f2 M-mount $890
    S/N 2,5XX,XXX, 3rd version.
    Comes with rear cap and hood.
    Glass is clean. Barrel has some paint wear. the filter thread is slightly bent but still able to mount filters. Great performer and amazing sharpness.

    3) Summicron 90mm f2 $800
    Serial Number is 2,333,XXX
    It is an amazing performer. I ended with two copies so selling one. Glass is clean with a few dust specks. Barrel is clean with minor paint war around the focusing ring and the tripod mount. Focusing is smooth and the apertures are clean.
    If you have the R Summicron 90, we could trade plus some cash difference.

    4) Zeiss Planar 85mm f1.4 AEG $620
    Glass is perfect with only 1-2 dust specks. Focusing ring is smooth and well damped. Cosmetically it is in excellent condition with only few tiny paint wear around the edges. I hate to let it go, but I am not using it since I have around 8 lenses in the 80-100mm range. One of the best portrait lense available with excellent micro contrast. Comes with front and rear caps.

    No, you don't suck because of the 17mm TS-E: it is Canon's infamous Achilles Heel with no clear application and behaving more like an uncorrected fisheye. And tell me what your first reaction would be to the huge front element copping a nasty scrape. The TSE 24mm (original version) is the bees' knees of them all for landscape and the best choice (I have used it since 1996).

    Inspiring photos of Zion National Park. I guess I'll have to wait 4 more years before retirement to get there!

    Hello I love Australia.
    Yes the 17mm is not for everyone, but in the right hands it sings.

    That 17mm works beautifully for interior images; my d***** tech loves it - very little distortion that needs to be corrected! Sure it has the most bulbous front element I have *ever* owned (my 300 f2.8 the biggest), but the cap protects it nicely.

    I was blown away by it's lack of barrel distortion (compared to a previous 17mm I owned), and that was *the* major reason I paid $2500 to add it to my kit. It's an absolute joy to use, and a real workhorse for the architectural imagery I produce for clients.
