Hello !

In my quest for a nice 200-300mm zoom for travels and landscape, I finally decided I would go for this one Smile

So I am looking for a Zeiss Vario-Sonnar 100-300mm, preferably in Europe. Cosmetic condition is not very important for me, as long as the glass is clean and the mechanics are good.

If you have one for sale, or if you know where I can find one... Looking forward to your offers !

Thank a lot.

Hi, I have been looking for a contax 100-300 as well and came across this forum. Since it is a harder lens to find I figured it wouldn't hurt to post on here that I am looking. I live in Whistler BC Canada and would be interested in buying from US or Canada.

Thanks guys!

Check eBay always. I got mine on eBay. It's an excellent lens. The cons are, the push-pull zoom ring, many of them (probably most of them) have zoom creep problem; and it's a slow lens. But you will love it.

Good luck.

Hello Billou, I just found KEH (in US) is selling this lens (lower than on eBay). Not sure whether they charge sales tax to foreign buyer or not.

Check KEH (in US) they're selling it, and price is better than eBay.

haha, must be you after mine Smile

I'm willing to let it go, but it's near perfect. You know what that means Smile
