    I am selling a Zeiss Sonnar 50mm F1.5. A blazingly fast lens by contermporary standards when first introduced in the 1930's, the Sonnar is still considered one of the best 50mm lenses ever. This is a post-war Sonnar with light purple coatings. This lens will work on any Contax or Kiev rangefinder or the Bessar R2C. The lens is in excellent shape optically and mechanically with no oil, no scratches, no haze, and no fungus - very clean glass! There is a small ding on the the filter thread, but 40mm filters thread on correctly with just a bit of finesse. I have set a bargain price on this fine optic.

    Price: $140 plus insured shipping. I ship worldwide
