    This is a superb Zeiss 50/1.5 Sonnar for Contax and Kiev rangefinders. Light purple coatings. Perhaps a few micro coating scratches or dust specks if examined under intense backlight, but the glass condition is about as good as it gets for a lens of this vintage. No haze, no fungus, and no oil. A tiny bit of scoring on the tips of the iris blades. Has a small nick on the outside of the filter thread, but filters thread on smoothly. A really nice specimen!

    Price: $150 plus insured shipping

    That's an awesome price for a lens of this quality! If I hadn't bought one before, this is the one to get. Since it's post-war CZ (Opton), this is the best you can get in terms of coating and glass.
