Here are all the vintage cinema lenses you can probably dream of having.
Are you looking into dusting off some old movie cameras but feel you don’t have the right lenses for the job? Or maybe you’d like to experiment with several lenses? Well it seems we’ve found a solution for you. You can have some 1,000 cinema lenses (and possibly other items, too) in this ebay listing for the right price — US $1,000,000 to be precise.
No idea why ebay seller calkovsky-cinema-worldwide is selling “1000’s of cinema lenses for entire lot” which seems all the cinema lenses in their ebay inventory. Apparently, they’re also throwing “dozens of antique wood tripods, over 500 German electronic lens shutters, 100’s of adapters and accessories, dozens of movie cameras” into the million dollar sale. “Start your own business! A massive store full of inventory!” They suggest. So maybe they’re getting rid of some old stock that could still be useful (or interesting at the very least) to some vintage collectors.
Most, if not all of them, appear to be vintage cinema lenses from brands and makers like Angenieux (over 90 of these, seller mentioned), Cooke, Zeiss, Canon, Dallmeyer, Schneider, Computar, Cosmicar, Wollensak, Elgeet, and Kern Switar. Surely, that massive inventory is going to make any movie maker, videographer, and collector swoon!
Many of these lenses, while especially made for cinema use, most likely won’t have the features and functionalities required by today’s demanding filmmaking and videography industries. So, unless you have right equipment to go along with any of these, that could be the main catch — aside from the eye-popping price tag and the storage requirements for such a massive inventory.
If you’re willing to part with an insane amount of cash for this entire inventory, head over to this ebay listing to learn more about what you’d be getting!
