Brand New Docter-Wetzlar Apo-Germinar 1000mm F19.5 Prototype Lens in Copal #3 Shutter (SN: #1)
Prototype lens. Brand new/demo unit in original factory blister case.
Factory mounted shutter with factory aperture scales.
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 Schneider's 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.
A unique lens in its class. No other lens is capable of doing what this lens can do. The only option for extreme ULF photography (for 16X20, 20X24 and larger).
Serial number #1.
Shutter tested and works as it should.
Includes retaining ring and both original caps.
Glass has minor internal dust, otherwise appears to have only been handled a few times out of the original box.
We have lens boards for most cameras in stock- just ask.
Returns: A 15% restocking fee will be charged on this item.
