CZJ Sonnar 180mm f2.8 Portraits

Carl Zeiss Jena Sonnar 180mm f2.8

Quite possibly the best bokeh machine for the money on the market. Certainly the cheapest 180mm f2.8 I know of anyway.  Excellent for portraits giving a nice creamy bokeh.

Compared to my Nikkor 200mm f2 AI-s it is reasonably compact to without the hood. Short and chubby with a 86mm filter thread! BIG!

I’m downsizing my Nikon gear a little so I have the CJZ Sonnar 180/2.8 for sale!

£220 + Shipping (Best Offer).

I can provide the P6 (Pentacon 6) – Nikon tilt adapter mount too at an additional cost.

It is the non-zebra version with original hood and front and rear caps. No box i’m afraid. The photo below is the same version but just not my actual lens.  I can get some photos taken at the weekend for anyone interested.

Here are more CZJ 180/2.8 examples using the Nikon D800 again:

I original bought to use with my Pentacon Six TL medium format film camera (also for sale) and the ARAX CM + Kiev 88 (for sale).

You can find some nice 6×6 medium format film camera examples here:

  1. Hello, I would like to ask how exactly do you mount this on a Nikon body? Would be great to know!
