Zeiss Jena Biotar 75mm 7. 5cm F1. 5 Red T First Heavy Version 1942 WW2 RARE
Item History and Pricing
A beautiful World War II, 1942 production lens. This Zeiss Biotar is the early first version shape. This is a collectible German World War II lens that takes beautiful pictures.
This lens is in very nice condition and shows minimal signs of use (see images). The elements look good but I’ve not had this lens cleaned, so I would advise to do so if it will become a daily ...shooter. The T coating is nice but it has some cleaning marks which are shown in the photos - they do not impact lens performance. Aperture and focus work as they should with a Meter focus scale - focus is perfect and feels good. The filter threads have a small dent/crack but it still takes a filter or lens hood. I’ve used the lens pretty much wide open and its sharp enough, perfect for portraits. A cleaning is always a good idea.
This is clearly a beautiful, rare and highly collectible lens that needs to be used or collected by someone who will take care of it. The signature bokeh is legendary (see images) and colours are Zeisstastic!
The buyer will be very happy with this purchase. It comes with:- lens hood- original metal rear cap - rare- original Exakta EXA mountSerial Number: 2688542Made in 1942
I am a long time eBayer (since 1998) with a perfect feedback record acquired from years of buying and selling on this platform. I have made every possible description and believe it accurate. You should be pleased to acquire such a beautiful item.
Please bid often and with confidence. I buy and sell a lot of lenses and I'm also a shooter, so I can give an accurate description. PLEASE READ: due to many new photographer’s misconceptions of older lenses ‘as new’, I list this item “as is, for parts only” and is not returnable. It works well but it is not new and if you are addicted to flashlight tests please ask questions first.
Shipping and insurance borne by the buyer. I normally ship from Hong Kong but am on extended stay in Malaysia so I will ship from here using the local Post Office Services. Let me know if you want other postal services. Any difference in shipping charges would be refunded or additional charges expected.
