Docter-Wetzlar Apo-Germinar 1000mm F19.5 Prototype Lens in Copal #3 Shutter (SN: #1)


• Prototype lens

• Serial number #1

• The most advanced lens design 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 (16X20, 20X24 and larger)

• Only a handful of these were 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

• This lens is a brand new demo unit, in it's original factory blister case

• Cosmetically, this lens is pristine

• Clean glass

• Glass shows minor internal dust, and otherwise appears to have only been handled a few times out of the original box

• Factory-mounted shutter with factory aperture scales

• Shutter is in good working condition and fires nicely on all speeds (sounds correct to the ear, but not tested for accuracy)

• Includes a retaining ring and both original caps

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