Lens seems to be original. But price....
Do you know the seller? Can you trust that he will send your item? Can you be sure that package will get though customs? Can you be confident that it will not be stolen in transit? To risky for me.

It seller honestly wrote: "Объектив не оригинал! Копия !" ("This lens is not an original! It's a copy!")

(Btw, I think that ALL this 'FED-stereo' lenses are new-made, including Princelle's one, but I'm not an expert in the FEDs...)

I have heard many collectors say that this stereo lens is made with Smena lenses, most likely in Poland during the 1990s and maybe even later. It is rare, but a modern fake, not by FED. I have never heard any knowledgeable collector say that FED has made this kind of lens.

This set was on Ebay for quite some time (close to 1 year) and no one bought it. The seller has had this for a long time and has tried to prove it was real by asking many collectors their opinion, including me, but evidently has finally realized it is a fake (but still, rare and valuable). This is about the price that collectors will sometimes pay, even knowing it is fake.

Regards, Bill

And the FED itself looks nice, something like 1937-1938 ?
