Shipping costs will be calculated at checkout.



This is a very massive and impressive lens made by one of the most reknowed german lens makers: Carl Zeiss Jena. This specimen features an impressive focal lenght of about 840mm (or 33") at a max. aperture of F10.5. The image circle of this beast is gigantic and about 1m in diameter. It will work very well for Ultra Large Format projects with formats up to 24x24 (maybe even larger)!


The condition of the lens is quite good. The black laquere shows some wear here and there, but is also in an authentic condition (considering its age). The most important thing: the glass is in a good condition, showing only minimal cleaning marks, no haze and no fungus here. Also the aperture is moving freely from F10 up to F64. The only wear you can really see here is some damage thats done to the front ring. Altough it doesnt look pretty, the damage is only cosmetical, the glass is 100% intact and also the aperture moves freely.


The lens comes with a fitting flange.
