I have up for sale this beautiful Elmo 1.0 12.5-30mm Zoom Lens for the GS1200, ST1200, GS800.
Condition of the optics is very clear. Physical condition of the lens is very good as well.
Price for this is $300 including shipping in the US. If you are overseas include an additional $26.00 for shipping.
Any questions let me know. This lens will give you a bigger image size than the standard 1.3 lens as well as increased light output and contrast. This is a Pro lens and the minute you pick it up you will be able to feel the quality as its miles ahead of the other plastic lenses that are usually paired with Super 8 projectors. It is the biggest improvement you can make to your image.
As Leica likes to say:
It's all about the glass

Hi Alan and everyone else my name is Russ I'm new to the forum I was wondering if you had ever opened up this lens to clean it, I have the same lens on one of my ST's and your right it is a fantastic lens and truly does make a huge difference to the projected image but mine has a little dust on the inside of the front lens and had heard it's possible to unscrew for cleaning, to be honest the dust doesn't seem to make any difference to the image clarity but it bugs me and id rather it not be there if possible.

Hi Russ,

Normaly, this should help :

Hi Guys, Lots of interest but still available. Lens has been tested on an Elmo GS1200 Xenon and the image is pin sharp from edge to edge with beautiful contrast. No issues with the lens, this is one of the good ones. If you want to purchase a tested lens this is the one for you! They do not come around very often *tested* and in great condition.
Item is currently on Ebay but for members here the price will stay as stated at the start of this thread.

Let me know. It’s better through the forum as eBay now charges tax.
