Sorry, this item has sold.

Rare Meyer Gorlitz Primoplan Red V
f/ 1.9 58mm Lens
Serial Number 1113220

I believe this is the best example of this
famous lens anywhere online ATM.
Don't pass on owning this gem.

*Includes - Cenei clamp-on aluminum lens hood
with its original leather case,
Ihagee 42mm push-on blue filter with its
original box, Heliopan 42mm slip-on
yellow filter in its original case,
42mm front lens cap, and original
leather lens case. These accessories are
in excellent to mint condition and fit the
lens perfectly.

*This is the highly desirable Meyer Gorlitz
Primoplan V lens with 5 elements in 4 groups
and 14 aperture blades. Outstanding bokeh.

*With the proper adapter, this lens can be used on
digital cameras for outstanding images that
just can't be obtained with modern glass.

*The lens was purchased by a
US Army officer while he was stationed
in Germany around 1952 or so.
I purchased this lens set from the estate of that
officer's family along with a large collection of his
other cameras, lenses, and photo gear. Everything
in his collection was of the highest quality.

*The lens is a joy to use. The focus is smooth and sharp.
The aperture blades (14 of them) open and close
smoothly with maybe just a hint of oil. There is
some debris and dust inside (see pic #2) but I don't see
any haze or fungus. There are a few streaks
on the front element but I don't see evidence
of improper cleaning. The lens mounts easily
and is tight against a camera body (solid mount).
The lens barrel is nearly perfect. Bright and clean.

*Please ask questions if you're unsure of
something or if you need additional views
of any part of the set. I can't show everything
in just 10 images but I believe what
I've included is a great overview of this gem.

I mail daily and this lens set will be mailed via
USPS Priority Mail with insurance and tracking.

Smoke and pet-free home.

Thanks for stopping by! - Chris

Frequently Asked Questions

Does your shop offer combined shipping?

Yes, just let us know and we'll work something out. No need to pay for shipping more than once.

Does your shop accept returns?

Yes, but with some exceptions. No returns on custom-made items. Part two - we will gladly accept a return within 14 days as long as it is returned to us in the same condition as when we sent it to you. Specifically, if an item is new and unused and in its original box and packaging it must be returned in an unused and unopened condition. Vintage and classic cameras, lenses, and certain pieces of vintage photogear carry no warranties or guarantees. By their very nature, older cameras are just that, old, and their electronics, levers, knobs, buttons, and dials can fail at any time. Let us know if you are returning something, maybe we can reach an agreement short of a full return. Part three - you will always pay for return shipping. Thanks

Will my purchase arrive well packaged?

Always! Carol and I take great care (and pride) in packaging your purchase. We are mindful of being "green" but often times green doesn't protect your package properly. We have been shipping items safely since 2003. We must say, however, that we are not responsible for mishandling by the carrier(s) or loss of an item. Most items and especially valuable items will always have insurance added.

How can I contact your shop?

We are on Etsy almost every day and the best way to get our attention is by starting an Etsy convo. We'll answer you quickly. We're generally in the shop until 11 PM EST.

Does your shop ever do custom orders?

Yes, we do. Just let us know what you want or are looking for and we'll see if we can make it happen.

Does your shop accept a best offer?

We think we have everything priced properly but we are here to make a sale and keep our customers happy. Let us know if you want to make an offer on something. I'm sure we will find a way to reach an accord.
