Carl Zeiss Tessar 250mm F3.5
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 in the early 1900ies. 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 F3.5 !! version
which was made only for special customers and rare by any standards.
Condition: The housing is in a nice condition, there is minor wear to the housing and the black laquere is mostly in a good condition The glass is in a quite good condition too, there are minor clening marks in the front, but there is no haze, no fungus and no chips present. The aperture runs smooth.
The lens comes complete with a flange in a sunken mount.
The lens has a focal lenght of 250mm at a speed of F3.5. It will cover 5x7 formats and even 8x10 on portrait distance.
