What lens?

  1. Just out of curiosity, I recently saw a LF lens (new) I think it was a Rodenstock, but instead of having a black paint finish, the barrel was a dull gold colour....anyone shed some light on what it may have been, I think it was a 150mm. Regards Paul
    PS Don't intend getting one just a bit curious as to the why's and wherefores of such a "beauty".
     
  2. Hi Paul!

    <p>

    well, there is a very good chance it was a "Dokter" lens, this brand
    produced very fine lenses and shortly after the fall of the Berlin
    Wall went into the hands of rodenstock and, although I an not
    absolutely shure about this, it ceased the produktion under the name
    DOKTER
     
  3. Dear Paul,
    The other answer is that the lens could have been one of the special
    edition lenses SCHNEIDER made about 10 years ago, from memory they
    made Three versions a 90 Super angulon and a 150 and 210 APO
    Symmar .These all had Gold Plated front Lens mounts with an SE
    number......If you feel you need one i still have a new 150/5.6 in
    stock.......
    Yours
    Robert
