    What are your prices?

    Where are you located?

    Where are you willing to to ship?

    I'll get photos loaded when I get home.
    I've been looking for a replacement for my broken Contax G1 film body for a while now and I finally found one at a good price.

    But I'm paying for another copy of the 45mm f/2 Planar attached to it.

    So I'll have two copies and will need to sell one. I'm not looking for a profit or even to get a free film camera by selling the lens. I just want to cover the extra cost of having the lens and I can do that at a price lower than market value.

    --Lens is in great condition
    --no scratches
    --includes both caps
    --I think I still have the leather lens bag, but I'll need to double check that

    This is an awesome lens on the A7 series, especially with an A7II or A7rII (and probably the new A6300, too) on the Techart adapter--giving the FE 55m f/1.8 a run for its money!

    How would you rate condition of this lens from 0 to 10 (best).

    Well, the glass is clean, there's no coating loss, the aperture blades are nice and dry without signs of oil, the clicks on the ring are decisive, and the screw drive for the focus is working well. there's a cosmetic scratch on the finish of the about 90 degree around and to the left from the top of the lens that's about 2mm long. I don't know what number that is though...an 8?

    So the scratch is on the aperture scale? If so, from the pictures I've seen of the lens, there would be an 8 at either f2.8 or f8.

    This is the champagne-colored version, I assume?

    The scratch is in the champagne finish on the barrel just above the aperture ring. It isn't on the ring.

    Unfortunately, I'm going to have to retract this for sale ad. I expected that the second copy would be adequate. And it looks fine, but it isn't working on my Techart adapter. It seems to be focusing alright on the G1, but until I get a roll through the camera, I won't know whether it works or not.
