Voigtlander 90mm f3.5 APO-LANTHAR SL (PK-A) (UK) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Voigtlander 90mm f3.5 APO-LANTHAR SL (PK-A) (UK)

Asking Price
275.00 GBP

Item Location
Oxfordshire (UK)

Item Description
Due to the purchase of a K85, I am now selling my Voigtlander 90mm f3.5 APO-LANTHAR SL Lens.

I am now looking just for a SALE rather than trade.

This is a PK-A lens, so full Aperture comparability with both Film (MZ-5N) and Digital (K-01) in 'A' mode. It is also Manual Focus ONLY.

Its very compact, 58mm x 64mm, 390g and takes a 49mm filter thread.

It can focus very close, down to 0.5m (in practice a little closer I have found) and a reproduction ratio of 1:3.5. It has a 9-Blade Aperture for very smooth OOF Bokeh.

This is the SL1 version, in Black/Chrome. It comes with the original Front Metal Lens Cap and Plastic Rear Cap, Original Box/Packaging etc.
It does not come with the optional hood or close focus adapter.

A selection of photos taken with this fine lens, on both film and digital:


Its in very good condition, only a small scuff mark (not noticeable) on the back side of the Aperture ring. The Focus ring is ever so slightly loose front/back if you try and move it but that's really nitpicking, its lovely and smooth when focusing though.
The Lens barrel itself is rock solid and has no give what so ever.

Price: 275 / 350 Euro / $460 + 15 fully insured shipping to the UK.

I can ship this worldwide, shipping quotes on request.


Next to my K85 (not for sale)

One of the best and most beautiful lens ever made! Some time ago this lens opened for me the door to the world of high quality manual primes
