another LTM Sonnar
Ebay 230618131106, no connection to seller, etc.
This 5cm/1.5 lens looks interesting, in that it has ears, is in an aluminum mount, and has the general look of a wartime Sonnar. A few more pictures would be useful, though. The serial number doesn't check out against Theile's book of CZJ lenses, however- it is assigned to a batch of one thousand 7.5cm/3.5 Tessar lenses for the Rolleiflex, made in 1949. Serial numbers within a few thousand either way of this lens all show production dates of 1948 or 1949, with no batches of f1.5 Sonnars in the mix.
Makes me wonder if it is cobbled together outta spare parts, with a phony name ring.
