    Hi all, I finally got a super nice Contax IIa body and need a Zeiss 50 to use on it, I have a J8 but would prefer a nice copy of a Zeiss 50mm f1.5 or f2. If you have one to sell please shoot me a PM. Thanks!

    I have a 50 f1.5 - nice glass but the aperture isn't working right - blades are there and clean but the ring linkage has an issue.

    I have a 50mm F2, coated, nice condition, a little rough around the filter ring, but otherwise good. Say $70 Aussie, but the post would be around $20 though.
