Sony Full Frame FE lenses - $150 (Salinas/Greenfield)

condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: Sony
model name / number: Various
Selling a few rarely used Sony full frame prime lenses to streamline my collection...
They have been treated well, never dropped, always kept in bags/pouches, and are sharp copies without any decentering. They are also free of haze, dust, fungus, and fingerprints. I use UV protective filters from day one to keep the front element spotless.
All lenses include front and back cap as well as the original boxes/pouches/lens hood (if they had one).

• Samyang 35mm f1.8 === $275
This was my favorite "normal" lens. Small and light for this fast f1.8 aperture lens. Pleasant rendering and just an all around capable every-day lens.

• Samyang 75mm f1.8 === $275
Amazingly small and light compact telephoto prime. This one is fantastic for portraits and other mid-tele needs. Very sharp even wide open.

• Voigtlander APO Lanthar 50mm f2.0 === $750
This is really my favorite lens, but it does not fit into my prime trio (which is 15-40-90mm), plus it is manual focus, not AF, which needs a bit of talent. One of the sharpest lenses on the market which also manages to render a wonderful bokeh, plus amazing colors and micro-contrast. No aberrations thanks to being an Apochromat. Butter-smooth focus ring really helps to dial it in. I love the results I am getting from it...

• Rokinon (Samyang) Reflex 300mm f/6.3 === $150
This is a bit of a specialty lens, very small and light for a telephoto. Only manual focus, and very sharp if you dial it in right. Interesting (donut) background rendering. Does need a bit of focusing practice/experience, and the results can benefit from some post-processing (increase contrast). Got some great shots with it but certainly not for everyone. Note that this is not a full frame lens, so it will vignette a bit which can be cropped or used as a feature.

Prices are pretty much what I will let them go for. For quantities of two, I'll take 20% off the cheaper lens. Three, 40%.
