WestLicht Photographica Auction

A couple highlights from the next WestLicht Photographica Auction. (I thought f1.2 was fast)

Carl Zeiss Planar 0.7/50mm (c. 1966)
This famous lens is one of the fastest lenses ever made, developed by Carl Zeiss for the NASA lunar program. Later Stanley Kubrick used such a lens for for the candlelite scene in his film \'Barry Lyndon\' - ex Barringer collection.

Opening Bid: 9,000 EUR
Estimate: 16,000-20,000 EUR

Carl Zeiss Super-Q-Gigantar 0.33/40mm (c. 1960)
This is the world's fastest lens ever made, for Contarex Bullseye. Unique lens made by Carl Zeiss for Public Relation purposes - ex Barringer Collection.
