Elmarit-M 90/2.8 in M mount: 700.00 € (usually 1000$ on e-Bay)

N° 3623269. E46. Seen here next to the Elmarit-R 90.  Some signs of use but very good working order.

A gorgeous painterly lens very fine details.

Summicron-R 35/2: 500.00 € o.n.o

This lens is a fantastic performer. Its worn exterior aspect is not a sign of abuse but of heavy use. Old lenses had lower quality control than modern ones, so a great sample saw heavy use and was past on from photographer to photographer. The scratches are a testament to its excellent optical quality. It has been reviewed here (and on a Hasselblad X1D, here). Converted to Nikon mount via Leitax adapter. Original mount provided.

Leica-R for Sony-E mount: 60 €

I used this very infrequently (with my 19R lens, which was the only one I didn’t convert to Nikon mount) and it is almost as new. This sells for 120$. Other third-party adapters can be bought for the asking price but are not as well machined and put together as Novoflex.

SOLDHasselblad HX adapter : 180 € o.n.o.

This is the Hasselblad version, not a third party adapter. It gives you access to a range of 12 Hasselblad HC or HCD lenses (24 to 300mm) on the X1D. The item being sold has very minor signs of use but essentially looks new.

  • Hi.

    Hope you get your cameras sold.

    I was also seriously thinkong about selling my Sony alpha 900 because I would like to have a smaller camera and better IQ. But I don’t think I will gain a lot from using the a7r instead of my a900 IQ wise. Regarding the size it’s obviously a lot smaller than my a900 but also worse in ergonomic. I guess I just have to work with my lazyness and take my huge camera with me 😉

    Best wishes

      Hi David,

      thanks for the comment. Yes, all thiss gear will get sold, too late to turn back now and, in a few days, I will be without camera for the first time in over 30 years ! A great opportunity to see what I miss or don’t and to think before hitting the buy button. The A7r is on order, but lenses will follow a slower thought process.

      If you’re happy with the a900, you’re quite right to keep it. I too doubt the quality will be much different and the ergonomics matter more. So go on, be lazy and keep on making great pictures 😉


      • Hi Pascal.

        I also thought that it would be a great opportunity to start from scratch 😉 Anyway I look forward to follow your blog and see some photos from the a7r.

        I guess it’s a bit dangerous for my wallet but I’ll take the chance.

        Best wishes

    Is that R Lenses sold or still available ?

    Hey Pascal,
    While you’re waiting on that A7r, do some research on all that legacy M42 glass that makes the great bokeh backgrounds. For a coupla hundred bucks you can find several focal lengths that will simply mesmerize you with the creative potential these antiques can provide. I’ve got a Mir, a Zeiss and two Helios samples that are great fun and push you to shoot a different sort of image.
