    For Sale: Original Zeiss Super Speeds also called the B Speeds or High Speed Lenses from the 70's

    Asking $18,000

    These lenses have a unique triangle aperture that create triangle bokeh once stopped down past T2. Similar coatings to the very popular Zeiss Super Speeds mkii and mkiii.

    These lenses help cut the harshness of digital sensors with a vintage soft look. I can provide references from recent jobs on a Red Helium. Each lens has a hard PL mount, .8 gear pitch on the focus, and a 80mm front. Focus marks are imperial and metric.

    Included in sale:
    1x Zeiss B Speed 25mm T1.4
    1x Zeiss B Speed 50mm T1.4
    1x Zeiss B Speed 85mm T1.4
    3x Duclos 77-80mm OD
    3x PL Rear Caps
    3x Push On 80mm Front Caps

    As stated these lenses are old and from the 70's (made in Western Germany) so each lens does have imperfections from use over the years. I've shot a lot with them and feel that these imperfections add to the softness/vintage look to an image. These lenses have never been dropped, or miss handheld in any way! August of 2019 Duclos Lenses checked collimation and said each lens hits the witness marks accurately. Feel free to message me with any questions or come by and test them before purchase. Located in Los Angeles.
