Net SE, the company behind the photographic brands Meyer Optik Goerlitz, CP Goerz and Oprema Jena, has been declared insolvent and will be wound up.
German blog Photoscala reports that insolvency proceedings have started for the assets of Net SE, thus throwing the fate of all of its many crowdfunded lens campaigns into doubt.
The Meyer Optik brand had launched several lenses on Kickstarter this year, and now it seems likely all those backers will never receive their glass – and possibly their money back.
Photoscala reports that any claims should be addressed to a law firm called Lieser.
Net SE filed for bankruptcy earlier this summer.
