Dan Tamarkin here from Tamarkin Camera in downtown Chicago to give you another rarity du jour, this is the Leica Stemar Stereo Lens Set. This is a 33 mm f3,5 stereo lens that was made between 1954 and 1957. They made only about 1500 of these lenses, so they're quite rare. This set is complete and very clean and in good working order, in its original fitted red box.
First, let's take a look at the lens. Super thin lens cap, fitted especially for the Stemar. Here's our lens, very deep rear cap. We have our focus mechanism here, we have our aperture here, which of course adjust the aperture for both lenses simultaneously, 33 mm f3,5. Along with the Stemar set is the Ernst Leitz Canada, or ELCAN, which is where the lens was made in Canada, 33 mm finder. Lens shade for the lens and like everything that Leica makes really solid. And then, there's also Stereo Prism that was delivered with the lens as well, and this, as you can tell, is complete and quite clean and all original and it's ready to be used on any of your Leica cameras, almost any of your film Leica cameras.
So, we have here a Leica M4, we'll get our viewfinder set up. The Stemar Lens clicks right in just like any other Leica lens would. Let's get our lens shade on here and get the whole thing complete. It's pretty cool huh. So this is the Leica 33 mm f3,5 Stemar, as it's known, Stereo Lens set. Feel free to give us a call to learn more at (800) BUY-LEICA or on the world wide web at Tamarkin.com. Thanks for watching.
