€50.00 EUR

Shipping costs will be calculated at checkout.

This is rather a project lens or for someone who needs a small/compact field work lens.

It was made by the famous german lens maker: Carl Zeiss in Jena. This specimen features a focal lenght of 300mm (or 12") at a max. aperture of F9. The image circle is large enaugh to easily do some 8x10 work.


The condition of the lens is, lets say, ok. The black laquere shows minimal wear, but is also in an authentic condition (considering its age). The glass is fine, not perfect, but overall clear. The sad part is that the aperture was removed at some point. I also recieved it in plastic bag (see last picture). Im not sure if all the aperture blades are there, but i think even if one or two are missing/broken, the aperture should do its work.


The lens comes with a fitting flange.
