[SOLD] Voigtländer Macro Apo-Lanthar 125mm f2.5 (Worldwide) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Voigtländer Macro Apo-Lanthar 125mm f2.5

Item Location
Boston, MA

Item Description

I'm letting go of this legendary lens only because I've let go of my K-7 and I need the Canon EF mount version of it. I can't ship it immediately since Cosina in Tokyo currently has it for a CLA––there was one stiff spot on the focus helicoid, which I' getting cleaned. I just want to put this up to let you know it's going to go on the market, and will be ready to ship as soon as I get it back from Cosina.


Optics: 9.5/10, near perfect.
Cosmetics: 9.5/10, exquisite.
Mechanics: 9.5/10, after the CLA, should be perfect.

Ppl have asked me in the past "Why 9.5/10 instead of 10/10?"––simple, I will never rate any used item 10/10, because people, if they look hard enough, will be able to find some fault with any lens––even if it's brand new. Consider the 0.5 the buffer zone for that 0.1mm hairline scratch you might find on the second from last element using a 10x loupe, that was there since the lens left the factory :-)

Comes with everything: original box (mint), metal hood, metal lens cap, rubber cap for the lens hood.

Price is $1,500 OBO. Basically, that's the price I need to pay to buy myself a Canon EF version of the lens in similar condition.

PM me if you're interested. Only serious people need apply.

Photos will be uploaded if necessary and upon receiving the lens back from Cosina.
