Carl Zeiss Jena Spiegelobjektiv / Prakticar 1000mm f/5.6

The 1000 Spiegelobjektiv (mirror lens) was manufactured always in a Pentacon Six mount with appropriate 35mm mount adaptor included ( M42, Exakta, & Praktina ). There are three known color variations, Black, White, & Grey. Its reported that a small number for the DDR Military is in Dark Green but this might be just some urban myth as no sample of Green 1000mm ever surface. For reference the West German Zeiss Mirotar 1000/5.6 was released in 1965, weight in at 16.6kg but do allow a minimum focus of 12m.

    Few will be able to afford this beast, just nice to lust after and dream of and there is one for sale on German ebay! Since a couple of months, I’m the lucky owner of the Jena mirror telephoto lens, in its wooden crate, with three interchangeable attachments for 1, Exakta and Praktina, besides its fixed mount for Pentacon Six.
