The above image is a CAD rendering of the Dallmeyer 3B reproduction for which we are currently taking preorders. Please refer to this page for more detailed information on the lens, and continue reading to purchase your own.
Update: Preorders close at 5pm on April 7th, and the preorder structure has changed to a guaranteed price of $995 if we receive 50 preorders.
The cost of the reproduction will depend on the volume we sell. We cannot produce any lenses unless we receive at least 50 preorders. At a volume of 50, the cost will be $995. At a volume of 100, the cost will be $895. In the case that we do not receive at least 50 preorders, your money will be refunded in full. We are confident we can generate enough interest to receive at least 50 preorders, but you’ll have to help us get there. We’ll update the tracker daily so you can see how many preorders have been placed.
The preorder charge will be $500, with the remainder of the cost due when the lens is complete and ready to ship. We expect the lens will take 11 weeks to manufacture. Since preordering closes on April 7th, our goal is to ship the lenses during the last week of June.
International Orders: The buyer will be responsible for all shipping, insurance, taxes and duties.
