Carl Zeiss Docter Wetzlar Apo Germinar 750mm F14.5 PROTOTYPE LENS SN #1 for ULF

$9,000.00



Prototype lens, limited use.

Factory mounted shutter - read below for details.

Only a handful of these ever made before Docter closed their doors. Lots of online info about how these came to be. The only other comparable lenses to this are Schneiders XXL Fine Art series, which are equally rare.

Massive coverage and the most advanced lens design EVER, in the history of large format lens making.

Probably the rarest of the modern ULF lenses. This one, being one of the two prototype lenses of this model, is the rarest of them all.

Produced before Docter completed the change over to their own name, these lenses were assembled as proof of concept, and mounted in the only readily available #3 shutters.

These shutters do not include a custom aperture scale. We can provide a hand marked scale, or you can mark your own.

Shutter tested and work as it should.

Includes retaining ring and both original caps.

Glass has minor internal dust/artifacts that do not affect image quality.

Please see detailed photos.

We have many lens boards in stock, for most cameras - just ask.

RETURNS: A 15% restocking fee will be charged on this item.
