Carl Zeiss Contax Vario-Sonnar 35-70mm F3.4 | C/Y Mount Zoom Lens | Fungus problems

Up for grabs a legendary Carl Zeiss Contax Vario-Sonnar 35-70mm F3.4 zoom lens. It’s a very respected vintage zoom, still popular to this day. It has been de-clicked, which makes it great for video use. Focus/Zoom ring is very nice and smooth. Aperture blades are oil free and ring is responsive, but not too loose. Unfortunately it has some optical problems, including a few superficial cleaning scratches on the front element, which probably won’t affect the image quality, but there is also quite a bit of fungus inside, which definitely needs taking care off, therefore I’m forced to sell this wonderful lens at a massive discount. Vario-Sonnar in great condition would cost double this price, so if you are good at cleaning lenses, this might be a great bargain for you. The lens is sold as described, so there can be no returns or refunds in relation to the problems mentioned above. The lens comes with both, front and back caps. It will be packed very well for a safe delivery by a recorded delivery service. Make sure to check out my other lenses as well! Thanks for looking.
