The upcoming auction of vintage cameras, offered by Bruneau and Co. Auctioneers, will feature a Macro-Switar AR 50mm lens, designed for an Alpa mount. Kern, an optical glassmaker, collaborated with Alpa, a Swiss watchmaker, to create this lens. The Macro-Switar was first introduced in 1968, upgrading the original 1951 design. The piece has a close focusing capability of 28 centimeters for macro photography.
This sale offers a collection of over 600 cameras, lenses, and accessories. One key lot is a Model K7F 80mm lens from the Rolleiflex collection. These medium format film cameras were originally manufactured by the German company Franke & Heidecke. First introduced in 1928, Rolleiflex cameras have two lenses: one transmits images to the film and the other serves as a viewfinder to enhance the focus. Also featured in the listings is a Nitto Seiki Eleger-35. The Japanese Leica-styled viewfinder camera was produced with an Eleger Anastigmat lens in 1952. View any of these lots and register to bid on Bidsquare.
