FS: Zeiss T* Mutar 2x teleconverter for Hasselblad 500 c series; price reduced
The Zeiss T* Mutar 2x teleconverter is an optic that goes between the Hasselblad body and the back of the lens, effectively doubling the focal length of the lens and reducing the relative aperture set on the lens by two f-stops. Exposure time will be quadrupled
This Zeiss converter can be used on the Hasselblad 500c/cm, 501cm, 503cm, and 503cx.
The converter weights in at 420 grams
The converter is mounted on the camera in the same way as an extension tube or lens, everything must be cocked. First, the converter is mounted on the body and then the lens is mounted on the converter. You perform the opposite sequence to remove the converter.
A word of warning..... exceptionally, the 135mm Makro-Planar /f5.6 or the converter can be damaged if you try to mount the Makro-Planar directly on the converter; an extension tube must be inserted between the lens and converter. This lens is the only exception. All other lenses can be mounted directly on the converter.
This converter is in impeccable mint condition with front and rear caps. Everything is CLEAN.
$375.00 and postage from Canada (insurance and delivery confirmation is a must)

Thank you for looking. If you have more questions, please ask!
Addendum: from the literature I have read on the Internet and Zeiss's take on the lens, the design is such that there is no degradation. Also, This Mutar will fit the older 500c chrome lenses, the 80, 130, 150, and 250. It will also fit the black T*, 100, 180 It will not fit the 50 Distagon since it is a retrofocus lens, and extenders and retrofocus do not make for good company. Also, the Makro-Planar 130/4 cannot be mounted directly on the Mutar, but needs a 32mm extension ring in between
