-Extremely rare 210mm Apochromatic lanthanum lens. Voigtlander made three Apo Lanthar lenses in size large format. The 150mm. 210mm and 300mm.

A very rare find and very nice condition overall. Great glass. THE BEST OF THE BEST! The famous Voigtlander APO LANTHAR in the very desirable 210mm focal length. I have one example in May 2020 which was in an electronic shutter which I sold for $1995. The last one was in May 2015 for $1850. You can see how hard they are to find especially in this condition. Desirable all mechanical Compound shutter. Outstanding lens. A pleasure to have and enjoy!
