Thanks Paul. Stumbled into a windfall yesterday. Picked up the N100 Macro new for 30% under dealer net. Also got a completely new 645 Kit for $2,700. and a new 55/3.5 for the 645 including hood for 50% off!!!
I'm currently high bid on 4 C/Y lenses on e-bay that I'll adapt for use on the Canon 1DsMKII ... including the 35/1.4 I've been hunting. A forum member alerted me to those also.

God, I've been in a e-bay Zeiss buying frenzy. Won a mint Hasselblad 50/2.8F for use on the Contax 645 via MAM-1 adapter ... for $1,000. USD !!! Have a choice for a Hasselblad 150/4 since the auction closed and the high bid backed out ... $600. !!!! I'm in on 3 other Zeiss lenses where I'm currently high bidder ... for a pittance of what they should sell for.
These people are dumping the best glass ever made so they can buy a 8 meg dinky-sensor wonder, and a fall-a-part lens with freaking plastic elements.
Those with N-1s and Contax 645's hold on to your gear. They are wonder cameras compared to the junk out there today. Just get a kick-butte scanner and go to town.
