Carl Zeiss 50mm f/1.4 Planar – Conversion to Leica M


Out of stock


Optical Condition:
A few fine scratches/ coating marks near the outer edges of the front element (circled in red on gallery image).
Rear element in excellent condition.
The few scratches/ coating marks on the front element does not affect the image quality.
However, since they are present, the lens has been discounted to reflect the front element’s less than pristine condition. The Planar has no haze, no fungus.
The aperture is 100% clean and oil free. Helicoid focus is smooth, aperture works fine.
The lens was given a CLA upon conversion.
It may have some very minor internal dust.
The mechanics may have slight wear marks from age (nothing major).
The new conversion mechanics are semi-gloss black painted to match the stock Planar mechanics.
The Imperial fonts are stock yellow paint colour.
Metric fonts in stock white colour.
The lens has stock rubber grips on the focus and aperture rings.
MkII Planar comes with a 1 year warranty. The lens is able to focus from 0.45m to Infinity, with full rangefinder coupling from 0.67m to Infinity. The lens has minimal focus shift and we calibrated it for f/1.4 wide open usage.

Lens comes with a rear M cap and front clip on 55mm Contax cap.
