Welcome to my page and thank you for looking trough my listings! I service professionally any vintage lens. This is something I do in my spare time, for many years, no matter of make and model. I do this because of my passion for photography, for vintage lenses, and so you guys can enjoy a vintage glass on it's full potential, without having to worry about the issues that an 40/60/70 years old lens has without being service. This listing is for a nice Zebra Flektogon 35/2.8.The lens has been fully serviced (I never service a lens partially), completely disassembled, every little part has been cleaned, washed, polished, re lubricated. The washing process, with detergents, not only helps for a nice and clean look of the barrel, getting all the dust out, but it also eliminates the risk of any fungal traces/spores may exist on the parts. Mechanically the lens is in mint condition.
It has been disassembled, cleaned throughout, regreased. The focus ring works very smooth as well as the aperture ring.
The aperture blades are very clean and dry, free from oil. All the glass elements have been cleaned and polished and they look very clear.
The optics are in superb condition, clean and cristal clear elements. There is no fungus, no scratches, no cleaning marks, no coatig issues. The optical elements have been treated with my "special " cream as a precaution to prevent fungus as well as exposed to UVC light. The lens is tested and performs beautiful as it should.Something I recently discovered and I would like to mention regarding the aperture system on this specific Flektogon we always learn even we think we know everything, right? When set at minimum focusing distance, the aperture is wide open with the aperture ring set to f4 instead to f2.8. As you focus towards infinity, there is a correlation between the aperture system and focusing, the aperture gradually shuts down one stop at f4, and once infinity reached the f2.8 mark and wide open at f2.8 is possible.
I have attached the last photo which shows the slider for the aperture ring which is made in an angle, specifically for this behaviour to happen. Please feel free to ask any questions or requests sample photos taken with the actual lens. Happy to post it outside UK.
