Lens & Accessory Summer Sale

Many of us here at the Phillipreeve team acquire too many lenses (and sometimes also accessories) and with some of the manufacturers it also isn’t easily possible to return the review samples after we reviewed them, therefore a bunch of stuff is for sale.
Update July 8th, 2024: added new item, removed sold items

I will ship to all european countries and all prices are without shipping. If you live in Germany you can add 7€ for shipping, within EU should be around 17€.
Payment is possible via Paypal or Bank Transfer.

I will only ship insured with DHL. If you want to come to Stuttgart you can also check out the lens you are interested in in person and we have a little chat.

All the items come without warranty.

If you are interested, leave a comment with your Email address (it will not be visible to the public) and I will get back to you.

Analogue Adventures – Part 32: Fuji 100

fuji fujifilm 100 superior review minolta cle leica analogue analog istanbul türkiye turkey
Fuji 100

In 2024 no one really knows anymore what is going on at Fujifilm when it comes to actual analogue film. Apparently the Fujifilm 200 that is being sold in the US is just relabeled Kodak Gold 200 – something absolutely unthinkable of just a few years ago. This Fuji 100 I received from a reader (Thanks a lot!) has been bought directly from Japan though, so it looks like the real deal, let’s have a look at the results together.
Processing (C.41) and scanning was done at urbanfilmlab in Germany.

Review: Zeiss ZM 21mm 4.5 C-Biogon

Introduction

Zeiss ZM 21mm 4.5 C-Biogon on Leica M6

The Zeiss ZM 21mm 4.5 C-Biogon is the widest of the three “Classic” designs in Zeiss’ ZM line up. It has long been discontinued and it wasn’t in production for a long time, so it is a bit rare and rather expensive on the used market. I always wondered how it would compare to the similarly compact yet newer Voigtländer VM 21mm 3.5 Color-Skopar and now we will finally find out.
Lens is being tested on 42mp Sony A7rII and 24mp Leica M10

Comparison: Fast 55/58mm f/1.2 | f/1.4 Manual Fullframe Lenses for F-mount

I guess you did not expect to see a comparison of fast 55-58mm f/1.2 to f/1.4 lenses for Nikon F-mount in 2024, but I also did not expect to see Cosina releasing a new F-mount lens in 2023, so here we are. We will be looking at the Nikon 55mm 1.2 Ai, the first F-mount lens as fast as f/1.2 from 1965, its modern reincarnation by Cosina, the Voigtländer 55mm 1.2 SL IIs Nokton from 2023 and Cosina’s fan favorite F-mount portrait lens, the Voigtländer 58mm 1.4 SL IIs Nokton, which is around since 2007.

Review: Voigtländer 58mm 1.4 SL IIs Nokton (Nikon F)

Voigtländer 58mm 1.4 SL IIs Nokton on Nikon FM2n

The Voigtländer 58mm 1.4 SL IIs Nokton has been in production since 2007 and gathered many fans over the years. This is probably the reason Cosina updated its casing design several times throughout the years while keeping the optics the same. Let’s see if we can find out what people like about it in this review.
