Carl Zeiss Tessar 150mm F4.5
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 back then. Here you can see the F4.5 version which is the most sold version of this lens. It offers a nice even fiel of view which is corrected for almost all aberrations. Its probably the most cost effective lens out there.
Condition: The metall is in a absolute nice condition, there is only minor wear to the housing and the black laquere is in a good condition The glass is in quite good condition, showing only minor cleaning marks and a small hairline scratch on the front. The aperture runs smooth.
The lens has a focal lenght of 150mm at a speed of F4.5. It will cover 4x5 formats. It comes in a Helicoid housing, so you can change the distance to the image plane while its mounted (might be important for Graflex cameras).
