Zunow 50mm (5cm) f1.1 Black M mount lens

Postby zuno2020 » Tue May 05, 2020 4:25 pm

Hi All,

I recently acquired this lens at an estate sale. I am unsure of what this lens would go for at its current condition, and where i would be able to sell it. Can you please help?

Some background info:

When I purchased the lens, it contained a few problems:
- Rear lens had haze
- Aperture blades were covered in oil.
- Focusing ring was stiff

Thus, I sent to the lens to the repair shop everyone recommended, DAGS Camera Repair.Don did all he could, and was able to remove 60% of the haze. The aperture blades are back to normal and so is the focusing ring. A complete overhaul of the lens was completed.

I am currently taking test shots to see how much the haze affects the overall image quality. I am using a Nikon F3 with a nikkor 50mm f1.4 to replicate the shot my Canon VT de Luxe with the Zunow 50mm f1.1 makes (images to come).

With all of this information, and the pictures I added of the lens, can someone please appraise the lens and guide me to the best place to sell this lens?

Thank you all for the help!

Note: the lens comes with the metal lens cap.
