Zeiss Contax 6 Prime Lens Kit (EF Mount - MM Versions)

More

  • Contax 85mm f1.4
  • Contax 135mm f2.8
  • Pelican Case
  • 77mm Tiffen 1/4 Pro Mist Filter

OWNER NOTES

*MODDED to work with Metabones Speed Boosters (levers and protruding parts have been removed)
These are lovely lenses. Contrast is smooth while still having that 'Zeiss pop'. They're not as clinical and clean as more modern lenses and coatings. (Photo is 135mm w/ ProMist filter shooting wide open, and shooting into the sun and letting it flare... So a more extreme look at the smooth contrast and lovely flaring. But these lenses are nice and punchy when you need them to be!)
This kit includes 5 Zeiss Contax Primes, all MM versions, but I've supplemented the kit with a Zeiss Jena 20mm/2.8 on the wide end, which mixes very nicely with the rest. I also include a 77mm Tiffen 1/4 ProMist Filter.
All are fitted with standard seamless focus gears, 77mm filter fronts with 80mm OD for attaching a clip on Mattebox, and all have de-clicked iris rings. All have Leitax permanent EF Mount (20mm and 135 have semi-permanent adapters).
I can bundle a Bright Tangerine Misfit Atom clip on Mattebox with 4X5.65 filters (ND6, ND9, CPL, 1/8 Black Pro Mist, 1/2 Pro Mist) that works great with these lenses. Would be an additional $30 to add it on to the rental.

Great guy, and great equipment!

I frequently rent Nick's gear. Always in great shape, and has everything you'd need for a great shoot!

The lenses look fantastic they really helped create the look I wanted for my film

Nick was professional, flexible with pickup/drop-off and very friendly. His gear was kept in exceptional condition. Would definitely rent from again!
