LEICA SUMMICRON-M 50mm f/2.0 - $1200
Purchased from KEH in 2012 in "EX" condition, it remains as such.
Hasn't seen much use since March 2014 when I switched to another 50 whose look I preferred (the Zeiss Planar T*, for those who are curious). No reason to keep it around just to sit on the shelf!
Clean glass, no marks/fungus/haze of any kind. Focus is smooth. This is Summicron version 4. The tab is the convex "tiger claw" version. Made in Canada. Includes front/rear caps.
NIKON NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4 AIS - $445
I love this lens. I bought it from KEH in March (in "EX" condition), and it's been fantastic. However, my Nikon tends to be my travel camera, and this lens is just a bit too heavy for my needs, so I've settled on the slightly slower f/2.0 version. That said, it's a tough call to let go of this one.
Excellent condition, glass is clean, no fungus, haze, or marks. Focus is smooth, lens feels great in the hands. Includes front/rear caps.
LEICA IXMOO CASSETTES - $25 each / $70 for all three
For bulk loading. Great condition (considering they're something like 50+ years old), I've been using them consistently over the past year or so. I'm just getting out of bulk loading so these are no longer of use to me. They're really cool little pieces of engineering, though! I'm tempted to keep one just for that! Includes original canister cases.
POLAROID NPC BACK FOR HASSELBLAD - $40
I bought this from KEH ("bargain" condition) in summer 2015, put a single pack of instant film through it with my Hasselblad 500C/M and haven't used it otherwise. Good condition, works perfectly.
MANFROTTO 808RC4 3-WAY PAN/TILT HEAD with RC4 Quick Release - $155
Brand-new, never used. I bought this in December, put it on my tripod a few times in the house to see how it worked, and unfortunately for me, never ended up using it. Seems like a fantastic tripod head, but it's more than I need. The photos are stock; let me know if you're interested and I can get you photos of the actual item if you'd like.
BOGEN/MANFROTTO 3025 3-D TRIPOD HEAD - $25
I got this from a friend in a batch of random photo gear. I've never used it, and I don't think I ever will. It's a bit worn, but in solid working condition (these heads are built like tanks). Comes with a quick-release.
PENTAX SPOT METER V (Zone VI Modified) - $180
Another item I'm hesitant to let go of. It's an awesome meter, but I have come to accept that I own too many light meters. So, I'm selling my beloved Pentax Spot Meter V.
The meter is in excellent shape, and works flawlessly. It has the popular Zone VI modifications:
"Installation of superior photoelectric cells; installation of a series of step-down baffles to eliminate flare; installation of a broad-spectrum (ultra-black) infrared absorbent coating to eliminate reflections; design and installation of four corrective filters, intended to match the meter's spectral response to the spectral response of the film."
