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 January 19th 2024: removed sold items, reduced prices
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 16€.
Payment is possible via Paypal or Bank Transfer. If you decide by Dec 25th shipping will be carried out directly, afterwards shipping date will be Jan 10th.
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.
PS: I might also be interested in trading in some of these things for stuff on my Lenses I would like to review list, especially a Canon 50mm 0.95 for M-mount.
The following items are former review samples:
Zhong Yi 50mm 0.95 M
This is the sample I used for my Super Fast 50mm M-mount comparison.
This lens has only been used for the comparison and is in as-new condition. Comes with caps and retail packaging.
333€ + shipping
TTArtisan 500mm 6.3 IF ED E
The same exact lens from this review.
This lens has only been used for the review and is in as-new condition. Comes with caps, hood and retail packaging (camera not included).
177€ + shipping
The following items are from my personal collection:
Canon 135mm 2.0 nFD
My friend Simeon is looking to sell his Canon 135mm 2.0 nFD. He told me it is hard to find buyers in his home market (Bulgaria) so I offered to list this lens here.
As can be seen from the outside it has seen some use over the decades. There is minor dust inside and tiny marks on the front element, otherwise no damage to the optics. Mechanics are in perfect condition. Comes with front and rear caps.
349€ + shipping
What happened to the money I got for selling those left over review samples?
Some of it I use to cover customs and taxes I have to pay when receiving a lens from overseas (which is usually the case), but what happens to the rest?
Thanks to previous sales I could already donate 300€ to a cat shelter in Stuttgart. I like animals, cats in particular, I live in Stuttgart and I am 100% sure the money will be put to good use and not just vanish in their administration (they also have a lot of refugee-cats from Ukraine to take care of at the moment).
The company I work for gave a refugee from Ukraine – who came to Germany with her daughter and had to leave her husband behind – a job and a place to sleep until they are able to afford to rent a place of their own. The daughter is is pursuing a career in the media department and very much interested in photography (architecture and street), but of course cannot afford any decent camera of their own at this point.
I decided to prepare a Christmas package for her containing a used Nex 6 as well as a Samyang 35mm 1.2 (thanks to my friends from Bulgaria who pointed me to a good deal!), the NiSi 9mm 2.8 review sample and a few things I added from my personal collection (Thinktank bag, 64 GB SD card, a nice book and a better charger). The Nex 6 and Samyang lens I bought from the money I got from previous sales.
From the money for all the review samples that have been sold beginning of January 2023 500€ have been donated to Ahbap, a Turkish NGO helping the people in the Earthquake area.
Thanks for making this possible by buying these left over review samples! – Bastian
