Great lens, I just don't use it as much as I did when I got it. Testing interest here before it goes to ebay or some other site. I know a few people were curious about them.

It's not the Zeiss ones they're making now; however, it's not the garbage Arax shit either. It's fair at 2.8, but sharpens up very nicely by f4. Full tilt and shift independent of one another. Very fun lens.

$600 shipped CONUS.

I'll get pics up if there's any interest. I'm going to have to shoot it anyway.

very cool lens, never heard of it before (and cheap for a TS)
you ever wish it was wider though?

Yes and no. For street scenes, it's great on full frame. Even for anything past 10' or so. But indoors it's definitely too tight. I took some when I was in Ontario of the salt mine with fishermen and kayakers, and I don't think I could've done it with something wider. So it definitely has it's purpose.

That thing looks sexy. That's a LOT of aperture blades.

Good thing I'm over my gear addiction or I'd be picking this up.

You're never over that addiction. It just goes in to remission.

I've always lost count on the blades at 10. I honestly don't know. I'd guess 13.

That looks *SO* fucking cool!

It's a beast. I love it on the D700. But I know someone else can do more with it and I could use the money more than the lens.

Cool. Let me know if you have questions. But Superrotator kind of explains it all.
