C. P. Goerz Artar 480mm F11
History: Here you see a quite compact lens made by the german company C.P. Goerz Berlin. This lens was famous for its huge image circle (angle of aprox 90°) and its absolute stunning sharpness.
The Artar layout is a very well corrected and super sharp lens
design, which was highly praised by many photographers.
Condition: The condition of the lens is very good. The brass shows only minimal wear and a nice warm glow to it. The glass is in a good condition, there are some clening marks and some specs here and there that wont affect the image quality at all. There is no haze and no fungus. The lens features a waterhouse slot (no stops included).
With its 480mm focal lenght, this lens will easily cover formats up to 14x17 and maybe even 20x24.
