The Zoomatar 1.3 / 180mm is amongst the rarest photographic lenses and one of the fastsst 35 format lens longer than 100mm.

Production is unknown, its high price probably kept production well below 50.

Notice the large tripod mound and folding focusing handle Zoomar made a 2x converter called a "Double 35" which made the lens a 2.6 / 360mm, more than twice as fast as Nikon's closest comparable lens, the 2.0/200 Nikkor.

The 1.3/180 came complete in its own special case with a built in hood, front and rear lens cap.

Introduced 1970; price $2668 (1970)
