I was wondering, how much is a single Zeiss ultra prime lense? I thought I seen once they where $3,000 each new. I don't know if thats it or not, but I was also wondering how good of a price you could get a used lense for (Thats still in good shape)?

Thanks

They're much more than that. Roughly around $10.000 each. The widest ones are more expensive, probably closer to $20.000...

They make sense for rental companies, but absolutely no sense to own privately.

Hi,

Some were sold on E-Bay at $5-6000 per lens, you can download the Arri pricelist from www.arri.com. to see the new prices.
$3000 would buy you a single Zeiss Standard or Hi-Speed if your lucky!

Yeah $3000US is probably for a used Zeiss SuperSpeeds...
Which is still a pretty good lens...not an Ultra Prime...but damn good.

I've actually seen New Zeiss SuperSpeeds selling for $2500US...
And you could probably get a set of 5 for around 10grand.

Anyways that's my two cents.

Arri were doing a half price offer for superspeeds with a new 235! I think they sold out!
