I know that most likely..my chances of obtaining original, silver, Carl Zeiss le ns caps for the 75mm Biogon are slim to none. I wanted to ask just the same....o n the rare chance someone may know of a source. Thanks in advance for any assist ance. Richard Boulware - Denver.

Lens and repro, Ken Hansen, Foto Care, Photo Habitat, Ken Mar, Helix, Central Camera, Glazers, Keeble & Schuchat, Midwest, Adolph Gasser Poto Gizzmmo are places to start.

We should have slip-on Kaiser plastic caps that would fit as long as the diameter is not more then 120mm.

Try Zeiss DE in Germany. It is sometimes suprising what companies still have in their parts warehouses. They seem to be very good about answering Emails. Good luck!

Richard, give Jeff Wheeler a call. He is at Quality Camera, in Atlanta. Advertises in View Camera. He gets around to the camera collector shows, and may be able to locate a set of original Zeiss caps for you. If I remember correctly, they were stamped metal (aluminum?) with black flocking on the inside. A while back, you were asking if the 75 Biogon could really live up to it's fabled reputation.I assume that you now have one. Can you run a comparison test with the modern Grandagons that you have been using? I, for one would like to know your opinion of the Biogon.

Greetings Richard,

If you want the ultimate in protection, contact Steve Grimes and have him make a set of custom caps. Considering the price of the glass, his caps are cheap. I have not seen a better cap.
