Just listed for sale in Japan: rare Zeiss Distagon 21mm

PostSat Feb 03, 2018 6:22 am

Zeiss CONTAX Distagon 21mm f/2.8

Arguably one of the very best 135 full frame, wide angle lenses ever made and now quite rare. Just listed on the 'bay in Japan at US$1000

I use one via the original Metabones CY>E Speed Booster on a Sony S35 video camera and the results are superb. It offers a 90 degree Field of View, zero barrel distortion, massive depth of field from virtually the glass to infinity (stopped a bit) and about f/1.9 at the sensor, wide open.
