    Indeed excellent!

    Without an American importer believing in advertising, this information would have never appeared.

    I can understand Voigtländer's pique! Böhmke must have started his competetion during the period when Hans Sommer was developing the RRs - soon to become Euryskops. I see he even mimiked the decorative serial number. At this time, patent laws were difficult to enforce across the Atlantic.

    Interesting. I have a Dagor labelled Gennert, I'm still trying to figure out who made it. I suspect it was post-Böhmke though.

    There is a 9 1/2" (240mm) Dagor (series III) but it is a No. 4.

    I found a mention that the Gennet Sylvar was a 3+3 anastigmat, but no info. on the construction. I have 2 series III no.4 Dagors, one a 9 1/2" and one 240mm.
