I went to pick up my beloved Zeiss 28mm F2 lens and noticed it looked a little like the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
Yikes! The front piece is bent, throwing the optics out of alignment. Upon internal inspection, the mounting feet where the front barrel attaches to the rest of the lens are bent.
I got this lens in 1984 for $600 and it was the centerpiece around which I built my entire Rollieflex 35mm system, which includes multiple backup bodies. I guess I never thought the lens would get trashed
I do have a faint memory of my padded carrying bag falling on the ground sometime this last year. That must have done it, as there are no external marks on the lens.
