Voigtländer Heliar 180mm F4.5 Compur Shutter

Coming Soon

If you ask seasoned shooters what favourite lens they would name, many would say a Heliar. Those are masterpieces of german optical design and famous in the Large format community for their smooth portrait rendering and absolute stunning bokeh. Just google up the internet for sample images shot with Heliar, you will see what i mean.


What you see here is a nice example of the 180mm version in a Compur shutter.

The condition of this specimen is quite nice. The lens is in absolute working condition: the aperture mooves smoothly forth and back and have all its leaves. The glass is in an good condition also, there are a couple of tiny specs and air bubbles, but this will not affect the image quality. There is no fungus, haze or any chips there.


The Compur shutter seems to work, though the times are probably not correct. Especially the 1sec and the slower times take to long.

The lens offers a focal lenght of 180mm and will work best for 4x5 and 5x7 formats.


The lens comes with a bajonett mounting.
