FOR SALE Lloyd’s Own Lenses: Zeiss, Leica, Voigtlander, Nikon, Canon, Olympus, Rodenstock, Schneider (PRICE DROPS)

I’d rather just keep a growing collection, but that’s just not feasible, for both space and financial reasons—I constantly have to be working with the newest lenses for my publications. There is no ROI (return on investment) for lenses that I rarely or ever need for my publications. Plus the ongoing insurance costs are negative ROI, plus I have to buy certain new gear each year. It’s time to clean house on some very good lenses.

  • All lenses here are “good samples” as far as my testing has determined; I never keep bad samples.
  • Nearly all are with original box and packaging (all that stuff up in the attic, I never throw away boxes).
  • My reputation is more important to me than any sale. I would never knowingly sell any gear with an issue. It’s that simple—just not worth it. Local buyers welcome to inspect firsthand.
  • All my glass tends to be pristine. If I see any kind of optical marring, I will note it prior to final sale.
  • Please note that new lenses have dust inside! Used lenses always have some dust, even after a week or two of use. NONE of my gear has ever gone to Burning Man or anything 1/10 that extreme.
  • Overseas is just too much of a hassle, but if payment is made I can hold a lens until buyer visits my area.

LNIB = Like New in Box

Payment as agreed upon. Buyer pays FedEx 3 day shipping and buyer is responsible for California sales tax, if applicable. Local inspection/pickup if you are close to Palo Alto, CA.

Nikon mount

All Nikon lenses are original USA models—no gray market. Zeiss sales are because I have the Milvus replacements for the lenses I’m selling. These are all excellent samples, some particularly so.

  • Nikon 45mm f/2.8 ED PC-E Micro Nikkor $1049. Shows some wear, but perfect glass and mechanical.
  • Nikon AF 105mm f/2D DC-Nikkor $850 LNIB
  • Nikon 50-300mm f/4.5 ED AIS, excellent glass $725
  • Zeiss ZF.2 18mm f/3.5 Distagon $700
  • Zeiss ZF.2 50mm f/2 Makro-Planar $800
  • Zeiss ZF.2 100mm f/2 Makro-Planar $1299 (particularly outstanding copy with superb symmetry at distance). SALE PENDING
  • Voigtlander Color-Skopar 28mm f2.8 SL II with lens hood LNIB $425.
  • Voigtlander Ultron 40mm f/2 SL II with lens hood LNIB $305.
  • Zeiss ZF 25mm f/2.8 IR-Distagon RARE and all but impossible to find $3500. Special build with infrared optimized lens coatings. Has a regular Nikon F-mount and barrel just like the non-IR version. It is ZF (not ZF.2) so no CPU chip to fail either.

Canon mount

All Canon lenses are original USA models—no gray market.

The following Zeiss lenses for Canon are for sale because I almost always shoot Nikon and I have them all for Nikon:

Olympus

Leica

All Leica lenses are original USA models—no gray market.
