Carl Zeiss Tessar 150mm F4.5 (in Helicoid)

€60.00 Sold Out


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 about this specimen is that it comes in a moveable helicoid, which makes it possible to focus without a focusing rail in the rear, or compensate for short bellows draw.


Condition: The metall is in a absolute nice condition, there is almost no wear to the housing and the black laquere is in a good condition The glass is mostly in good condition, with some cleaning marks. The aperture is missing a blade but otherwise runs smooth.

The lens comes complete with a fix attached flange.


The lens has a focal lenght of 150mm at a speed of F4.5. It will cover 4x5 and even 5x7 formats.
