Currently sold out
Zeiss High Speed / Super Speed T1.3, Super 35mm
HS Set: 18, 25, 35, 50, 85mm T1.3 Mk. II, (version 2.1) with wrap-around focus scales. Overhauled, VG condition -SOLD
Zeiss Standard Primes, T2.1, Super 35mm
Zeiss Standard Prime Planar T* 2/135 T2 Mark I
With permanent PL mount conversion and custom Delrin focus gear. Lens has been overhauled and focus scale to thread interface rebuilt to prevent slipping (which is common on unmodified MK. I 2/135). This rare Mk. I version of the 135mm Planar has a vintage version of the T* coating which creates desirable flare characteristics. It is not as “perfect” as the newer Zeiss lenses.
Zeiss Standard Prime Set Mk. 2.2 T2.1 in PL Mount:
- Distagon T* 2/16 T2.1
- Distagon T* 2/24 T2.1
- Planar T* 2/32 T2.1
- Planar T* 2/40 T2.1
- Planar T* 2/50 T2.1
- Planar T* 2/85 T2.1
A very nice Mark II updated set with focus/iris gears and updated mechanics. Includes the only two Planar lenses under 50mm ever offered by Zeiss for the Super 35 format. Fully overhauled. Good cosmetic condition.
These are excellent lenses for digital cinematography. They offer good contrast, good but not excessive sharpness and a beautiful bokeh that is only possible with vintage lens design. At T2.1 fine details are slightly softened. At around T4 – 5.6 these lenses are competitive with modern cine lenses such as Ultra Primes.
Standard Prime Set: 16, 24, 32, 50, 85mm T2.1 Mk. I. Multicoated T* version. Custom PL conversion, custom focus gears and new laser-engraved focus scales. Vintage Zeiss T* coating. $16,950.-
NOTE photo above shows a 4 lens set previously sold in 2016. The set being offered now is a 5 lens set (including the 32mm) and is otherwise identical to above pictured set.
This conversion is extremely costly in terms of labor. So this second set will be the last set that will be converted.
