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


- Prototype lens

- Serial number #1

- Brand new/demo unit, in original factory blister case

- 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

- 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 works as it should
