Herar 3.5/3.5cm lens

This is very rare Herar 3.5cm/3.5 lens in Leica mount. It is the lens that never really made it past the prototype stage. The barrel is similar to the 35mm Biogon and Orthometar, a heavy chrome over brass construction. Although it was reputed to perform well, and would have been a less expensive alternative to the Biogon, it never went into serial production.

I found following specification in the Internet:

lens name F stop/
focal length
elements/
groups
aperture range min. distance mount maker date filter weight
Biogon 2,8/3,5cm 6/4 2,8-22 3 Contax-RF CZJ 1936-45 A42/S40,5 285g
Herar 3,5/3,5cm 5/2 3,5-22 0,9m Contax-RF CZJ c.1940-45 A42/S40,5 135g

There are good and bad news about this lens.

Good news is its condition - no fungus, no scratches. Some tiny dust particles inside. Mechanics is smooth.

Bad news is its story. Serial number is 2641448 that means that it was made in Contax mount originally. But someone remounted it to the body of Jupiter-12 lens. The lens works fine in this housing, but it is not original anymore.

Though there is another version of this story that I was told by my supplier. Probably, different lenses parts were brought to the USSR after WWII along with captured Zeiss Engineers. This may explain why they used parts of different lenses to assemble some particular lenses like this Herar.

I dont know which version is closer to the truth.

Optical condition is fine. Owner told me that there is no fungus or scratches, but there are some tiny dust particles inside.

This item is on consigned sale. Up to a week will be required to get it from the owner. Be patient with this item, please.
