€450.00 EUR

Shipping costs will be calculated at checkout.

History: This is a good example of the optical masterwork made by the Plaubel company in Germany. The Anticomar features a slightly altered Tessar design, which offers a bit more light sensitivety. Here you can see the F4.2 version which is the most sold version of this lens. It offers a nice even fiel of view which is corrected for almost all aberrations.


Condition: The metall is in a absolute nice condition, there is almost no wear to the housing and the black laquere is in a good condition The glass is in good condition, showing only minor cleaning marks and a small hairline scratch on the fron. There are no signs of wear that i can spot there. The aperture runs smooth.


The lens comes in a Compound shutter which works well. Only the slow times like 1/2 Sec and 1 Sec sound a bit to fast to me.

The lens has a focal lenght of 210mm at a speed of F4.2. It will cover  5x7 and even up to 8x10 formats.
