Voigtländer Heliar 360mm F4.5
you ask seasoned shooters what favourite lens they would name, many
would say a Heliar. Those are masterpieces of german optical design and
famous in the Large format community for their smooth portrait rendering
and absolute stunning bokeh. Just google up the internet for sample
images shot with Heliar.
It is a really impressive piece. The focal lenght is 360mm (or 14") and the image circle is HUGE here. As long as i remember it was advertised to cover 8x10, but it will cover up to 12x15.
The condition of this specimen is really really good. The lens is in absolute 100% working condition: the aperture mooves smoothly forth and back. The black finish shows almost no signs of wear, and also the glass is super clear and near perfect. The image on the groundglass is outstanding.
One of the minty Heliars that i ve seen in the last couple of years.
The lens comes with a fitting flange and the original Voigtländer leather lenscap!
