Description
-Serial #940913
-The historic ULTRA FAST 85mm 1.5 PRE WAR
Made in 1951 but designed by Max Berek in 1936
-SM LTM mount and easily used on M with the LTM to M adaptor

This is a wonderful example of the desirable BOKEH 85mm 1.5 Summarex lens. Complete with its caps, case and additional filter. A fine example overall as they are usually showing wear and the glass is sometimes very poor due to the coating. This one is clean overall.
Glass has some faint haze and light cleaning marks but overall very nice and kept original! 
A complete set!
