    9 CP Goerz American Optical Dagor

    9 CP Goerz American Optical Dagor

    Im offering for sale again a 9 Dagor in an Ilex #3 Acme Synchro shutter. The shutter has been serviced and Ill include the measured speeds. The aperture works smoothly. The lens is coated and the serial number indicates it was made between 1948 and 1954. I have lens caps for both front and rear although they are not original.

    This is a very nice lens. $285 including.

    Thanks

    This is a wonderful lens for both 8x10 and 5x7. Lots of coverage at a great price.

    Yes it is Peter.

    I have a 10" WF Ektar and I bought the Dagor awhile back to make some print comparisons. The dagor is a wonderful lens and has lots of coverage. I know people talk about tonality and smoothness but it is easy to see the difference between the old designs like the Dagor and the Schneider Angulons, and the more modern lenses.

    Modern and near-modern lenses like the WF Ektar (1948) have more contrast than the older designs like the Protar and the Dagor and therefore appear sharper. For contact printing I prefer the older designs because, in spite of their lower contrast they deliver more creamy print tones. I do find that the modern lenses are better for enlarging with cold light because the cold light actually reduces the print contrast.
