Description

  • Serial #1760012
  • Chrome finish
  • Made in 1960
  • Last year last batch production
  • Only 4,400 examples ever made
  • Desirable uniquely designed Hektor 125mm lens where the lens hood reverses to form a protective case for the lens when not in use
This is a very rare and unusual example. So most of these lenses were made in Canada. Some fewer examples where also made in Germany. This is a later style DUAL SCALE feet / meter transitional where the name ring came from Germany but the lens body, and shade is marked and made in MIDLAND Ont. CANADA.
This came from the factory as such and the original owner who had it had relation with the factory. 
A VERY RARE example. 
Nice to have with x2 Leica filters as well. Uva and Yellow. 
This is also a very special and FAST telephoto lens. Unique to the Leica system and a magnificent lens to use for portraits with the shallow depth of field and bokeh!
