Glaukar f3.1

Originally released in 1910, photography pioneer Emil Busch create the Glaukar, an anastigmatic portrait lens that corrected spherical aberration long before many major manufacturers implemented the technology. The new company will be recreating the lens from the ground up that keeps the original's aesthetics intact, but updates the construction with high-end aluminum that has a brass-like oxidation, a three lens system, and 12 aperture blades to produce the perfect bokeh for your portraits. 

The new Glaukar is compatible with virtually every lens mount out there and has already met its funding goal on Kickstarter. The lenses are set to be delivered to customers in 2018.
