    Depends on what you are calling Cine Mod.

    As part of my continuing retirement sale, I offer up my set of Zeiss Contax Primes.
    It took a long time to assemble this set, but it was well worth it. Providing the look of both Zeiss Standard Speeds, and Zeiss Super Speed cine lenses for a fraction of the cost.
    The mounts are all C/Y except for the Flektogon 20mm which has an adapter added. They have step rings added with 80mm outer diameter and 80mm lens caps.
    The apertures have not been de-clicked on these lenses, as they will hold a split just fine, and I disliked the idea of adding dampening grease into an area which was never meant to have it.
    Focus gears have been added to all lenses by Focus Optics, with the exception of the 45mm and 18mm.
    They come with C/Y rear lens caps, as well as Canon EF lens adapters with EF rear lens caps.
    They ship in 2 iM2500 Storm Cases, which are carry-on flight sized.
    Focus on the 18mm F4.0 is a little stiff, but otherwise all lenses are in great shape for as old as they are.
    This lens kit would make a great addition to your arsenal!
