Description
-Serial #5139568
-An extremely rare and unusual UV Sonnar lens
-Only 73 known examples made but fewer are in existence
-Lens consists of calcium fluoride and quartz elements
-Originally made by Zeiss for space exploration with NASA and the Apollo missions; can be used in UV imaging
-This is the MOST desirable of all version made; black finish with front chrome ring
-C barrel All metal lens barrel; built to last
-This is an exceptional example. These lenses are almost impossible to find and I have never seen a C version with the chrome ring ( the most desirable of all models ). The last UV Sonnar known to be sold was in 2013 in Westlicht for 26400 EURO ( just over $31,000 ). This is a more desirable version!
