Shipping costs will be calculated at checkout.

History: This is a good example of the optical masterwork made by the famous Carl Zeiss Company in Germany. The Tessar was one of the most succesfull lens designs back then. The best thing here is, that its not the quite common F4.5 version which was sold over decades a million times, this is the faster F2.8 !! version which was made only for sciencific purposes, hence the name Bio-Tessar.

Condition: The lens is in a absolute great condition, there is almost no wear to the housing and the black laquere is in a good condition The glass looks really good too, i cant even spot any cleaning marks. The aperture runs smooth. from F2.8 to F32.

The lens comes with a mounting board, which doesnt perfectly match the threads but holds the lens well enaugh.

The lens has a focal lenght of 135mm at a speed of F2.8. It will work best for 4x5 portraiture.
