    Here is a Caltar re-badged Rodenstock Grandagon 75mm f4.5 and a Heliopan 1.5 stop 67-86mm center filter.

    The lens is in great shape with clean glass. There is a small amount of wear on the back of the lens mount and only the slightest of marks on the barrel. I have tested the Copal #0 with a Calumet shutter tester and virtually all the speeds are within 1/6 of a stop. (see below)

    The Heliopan filter is in lovely condition although if you breathe on it and look closely you might pick out a minute coating mark or two. The case for is a bit ugly but provides good protection. These filters cost $500 new at B&H.

    The price is $625 for both and yes, I prefer to sell them as a package. Payment is by PayPal and I will ship worldwide at buyer's expense as long as the parcel is tracked and insured. I offer a 7-day inspection period with buyer paying the return shipping.

    Thanks for looking!

    Good price for a fine lens, particularly since it includes the center filter. Here's a photo taken with one like it, and I was probably using the Schneider III center filter on it--

    Thanks for the shot, David. It does a nice job of showing the amazing depth of field you can get with one of these lenses.
