I am interested in selling my Zeiss Makro-Planar T* 2/100 ZF.2 lens. It is cosmetically and operationally in mint/like new condition. Some minor brassing showing on the mount, but this is not unusual for Zeiss lenses. I hate to sell this great lens, but need to pay for some other recent photo purchases. It comes with everything that comes with a new lens: caps, hood, original manual, paperwork and box. I am selling the lens for $1,395, which includes Paypal fees and shipping to conus.

This is the latest version of this lens. The following is Zeiss’s explanation of the ZF.2:

Thanks to its electronic interface (CPU), these new ZEISS lenses support all-important operations such as the automatic mechanisms for time, aperture setting and program. The CPU also supports manual exposure settings, including those for camera casings that are not AI-compatible. Since the lens now transmits the EXIF data such as manufacturer, date, metering system and exposure to the camera, photographers no longer need to set the parameters manually. These quicker and faster handling capabilities of the ZF.2 lenses are especially useful under hectic shooting conditions.
