Goerz Doppel Anastigmat No.8 'Dagor' 480mm F7.7
Here you see a quite impressive lens made by the german company C.P. Goerz Berlin: the famous Doppel Anastigmat 'Dagor' lens. This lens was famous for its huge image circle (angle of aprox 88%) and its absolute stunning sharpness. Many companies tried to copy the Doppel Anastigmat layout, thats why Goerz patented the name 'Dagor' for it. This is the No. 8 of Series III, a very impressive and heavy piece of brass and glass. The focal lenght is 480mm (or 19") at a max. aperture of
The Doppelanastigmat is a very well corrected and super sharp lens
design, which was highly praised in the early days of photography.
The condition of the lens is very good. The brass is authentic and shows some wear here and there, its shows a nice warm glow to it. The glass is in a good condition, the only visible blamish are some superfine clening marks here and there that wont affect the image quality at all. There is no haze and no fungus. The aperture is moving freely and it comes with a fitting flange.
