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 a 40/60/70 years old lens has without being service. This listing is for a Carl Zeiss Pancolar 50mm f1.8, in superb serviced conditions. 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 is perfect fully working order since it has received a full overhaul. Smooth focusing action, I use a home made grease designed for camera lenses, which I found to be the best available on the market after testing many other industry dedicated greases during the years.
The Aperture ring clicks nice and precisely, clean dry aoerture blades the whole aperture barrel has beed de greased and washed throughout. The body of the lens is in good condition, no dents or damages, obviously shows it's age, please inspect all the photos as they are part of the description for this aspect. Optically the lens is in immaculate condition, with absolutely no scratches, no cleaning marks, no haze, no fungus. I have also re blackened the sides of the optical elements as the old paint fades over the years. This improves massively the contrast.The lens comes in Exakta mount. Please feel free to ask any questions or request samples taken with this lens. There is no doubt this lens is razor sharp, if you wish to see any close up shots to check it's sharpness, please let me know and I'm more than happy to send some. Thank you very much for watching!
