Carl Zeiss Triplet 700mm F5 ULF
is a very massive lens made by a wellknown known german maker: Carl Zeiss. In the past i had a handfull of similar lenses in the 500mm focal lenght, but this is the first and only one that comes with an impressive 700mm (or 27 1/2") focal lenght. The most interesting spec is that it also

I would reocmmend this lens for 11x14 and up to 20x24 portraits if you can work with a minimal vignietting.

The glass is mostly in a good condition also, there are some circular cleaning marks especially on the outer edge of the rear element, but nothing that would affect the image quality to the slightest.
features a working iris aperture which is moving
from F5 up to F12.5!
The lens comes with a fitting flange.
