Shipping costs will be calculated at checkout.
History: The Ross lenses are very well known and respected, especially the Ross Cabinet portrait petzvals are among the fines optics ever made. This specimen is not a portrait lens, but is still very fascinating, or maybe even more because of that. There is not much to none info on the Ross Wide Angle Xpress line on the net.

The most impressing here is not only that the lens has a wide angle design (which offers a very large image circle compared to its F) but it also offers a F4 starting aperture! There are plenty of wide angle lenses out there, but i dont know any which have this combination.

This is the 4" (or 100mm) civilian version, which is pretty rare, compared to the more common 5" military version.

The best part about this specimen is that its the civil version, mostly you will find the larger black version. The civol version is more compact and offers a better aperture, which can be stopped all the way down to F32.

The metall housing looks very good, there is minimal to no wear at all. The glass is a good condition mostly, showing some scuffs/marks, which wont affect the image quality. There is no haze or fungus.

The lens comes with a fitting flange.
