Hugo Meyer Weitwinkel Aristostigmat 160mm F9
History: The Hugo Meyer workshop is a well known german
lens manufacturer who was famous for the 'Schnellarbeiter' portrait
petzval series. The Weitwinkel Aristostigmat series is a wide
angle lens series, which still offered a well corrected field of view. The imaging angle is 100° and it was advertised as the worlds best wide angle lens of that time.
This specimen offers a focal lenght of 160mm at an open aperture of F9. It is a super handy and compact lens, it will cover formats from 5x7 to fullplate.
Condition: This impressive piece of brass and glass still looks very nice today. The brass is very good here, there is minimal to no wear, and it shows its authentic golden patina. The glass is a good condition also, there is some wear in form of cleaning marks and tiny specs, but that wont affect image quality. There is no haze, speration or fungus. The aperture runs smoothly from F9 to F36.
The lens comes with a fitting flange and the original leather lenscap!
