[SOLD] Minolta Close-up Lens No.0 / Achromatic Doublet (EU)

.


I am offering two (!) of those high-quality achromatic lenses by Minolta.
For a close-up lens, it feels quite heavy (weight 46.5g / about 1.5 oz.)
which is about twice the weight of a conventional close-up lens. The
reason is the internal composition: The lens really consists of two
single lenses which are cemented together (achromatic doublet).

This method has an important advantage: The colour dispersion near the
lens perimeter is corrected for two wavelengths. This reduces colour
fringes there and allows for sharper images.

Minolta No.0 / +0.94 dioptres As I have two of them you can choose:

(a) 49mm filter thread

(b) 55mm filter thread

The lens conveys a sense of quality and has no signs of use. The
glas surface is coated and without marks, scratches or other flaws.
In fact, I would rate it's condition excellent or as-new.
With an adapter ring, I used it on my SMC K105/2.8 and it produces
fabulous images. The image quality comes very close to that of a
"real" macro lens and is much better than from conventional
close-up lenses.

Asking 59 Euros plus shipping.

Both achromatic close-up lenses are sold. Thanks to the forums!

Shipping: To EU countries, 4 Euros / Rest of the world: 6 Euros
(airmail). Registered mail is 3 Euros more. Payment: Direct
bank transfer (preferred in Euro countries) or PayPal
(please add +4% commission). Shipping worldwide.

Send me a PM if you are interested.

Thanks!
