€900.00 EUR

Shipping costs will be calculated at checkout.

History: The Emil Busch Glaukar is one of the most elusive and rarest pieces of glass onthe market for years now.  Scoring high prices in any auction it was a rare lens by any means back in the early 1900ies as it is now.

The lens which layout is quite unknown (assumed to be a triplet design), offers a wide open aperture of F3.1. The stunning speed and the rarity added quite alot to the mythical character of this lens.

Condition: The overall condition is good here. The lens shows only minor wear, the aperture moves smoothly, and also does the helicoid mount move. The glass looks good, very clear, with minimal cleaning marks and specs.


With its 165mm  (or 6.5") it will cover 4x5 and 5x7 formats.


A truly amazing and rare lens.


The lens comes with its original flange with a helicoid mount.
