This renown 3-bladed, triangle aperture Carl Zeiss Planar 85mm f/1.4 HFT lens for Rollei QBM mount is in fair condition. The lens is free of haze, separation or fungus. The front element has a few swipes/scratches in the center, and the rear element has a good-sized scratch (visible in the photos) in the center, but I have not seen any effect or loss of contrast in photos at all.I've attached some photos for reference. Otherwise the focus action on the lens is smooth, the aperture clicks in at each detente, and the aperture blades are clean and free of oil, and move snappily. The lens barrel has some wear, but this does not affect its functionality.
The lens has been non-destructively converted to Canon EOS mount with a chip to give it focus confirmation and enable camera body control. I have shot it with an adapter on a Sony A7RII and on a Canon EOS Elan 7. I have the original QBM mount ring and can include it if requested.Adapting it simply requires unscrewing the Canon mount and screwing in the original QBM mount.
