Description
-Serial #781022
-Large format lens
-Extremely rare 210mm Apochromatic lanthanum lens. Voigtlander made three Apo Lanthar lenses in large format. The 150mm. 210mm and 300mm. The 300mm being the most expensive ( ABOUT $4000 ) this 210mm is the second rarest of the three. The 210mm are extremely scarce and hard to find. Especially in good condition!
-An absolute gem; has the classic red, blue, green stripes around the front element. 
-A must have for any collect or enthusiast. 

A particularly clean example! Very nice!

Details
-Aperture range: f4.5 - f32
-Mounted in an early Compound lens shutter. 

Includes
-Compound shutter ( no retaining ring )

Cosmetics 9/10
-No dings, dents or major marks
-Barrel is nice. Even the shutter black finish is nice.
Really a fine example!

Mechanics 9/10
-Aperture clicks are crisp
-Shutter speeds are accurate

Optics 7.5/10
-No fog, fungus, or separaration.
-Unfortunately, there is a mark on the back ( as pictured ) 
-Does not show up in the image but it is there. 
-Overall the glass is fantastic but I rated as such because of the mark on the back ( cosmetic )

I have sold a few examples of this rare lens over the last 20 years. This is by FAR the nicest I have had the pleasure of having. This is really a GEM! A pleasure to have and enjoy! RARE!
