Hermagis Hellor 500mm F5.7 ULF
is a very massive and impressive lens made by the french company Hermagis in Paris. This specimen features an
impressive focal lenght of 500mm (or 19 3/4") at a max. aperture of
F5.7. The image circle of this beast is gigantic and almost 70cm in
diameter. It will work as a long portrait lens up to 20x20
formats, maybe even 24x24 portraits.
The Hellor was Hermagis answer to the Zeiss Tessar and is a very well corrected and super
sharp 4 elements lens design. The image field is sharp overall well useable for ULF portraits and also ULF landscape shots.
The condition of the lens is quite good. The brass comes in a nice shape, showing no obvious damage. The glass is in a good condition also, showing only some abrassion on the front glass. Otherwise the glass is clear and shows no haze and no fungus. The aperture is moving freely from F5.7 up to F24.
The lens comes with a fitting flange.
