First lens of the MS Optical Historical Series Collection: small format version of the 1890 Zeiss Protar, Zeiss's first anastigmat design, which would later evolve into the Tessar. Maximum aperture f/6.3, which is fast for the design, thanks to the smaller format. Most vintage large format Zeiss Jena Protars (Series V) are f/16.Initial lot of lenses, designed, manufactured and hand-assembled in Japan by Mr Sadayasu Miyazaki.
Please note that we cannot make reservations for serial numbers.
Includes lens, lens hood and caps.
