Shipping costs will be calculated at checkout.

A very intriguing Industar monster lens that i never have seen before. Actuallly i never had a 500mm Industar version before. The only information that i could find is that it was used in the time of the cold war by soviet army for areal photography.


Condition: Well this monster comes in a custom case which offers a big slot either for large stops or somekind of filters on one side. Im not sure if this is authentic or was custom made at a later point, but its working. The glass is mostly in a good condition, there are some minor deteoration in the coating, but that wont affect image quality at all. 


The lens has a focal lenght of 500mm at a speed of F5. It will cover 11x14 and 14x17 format with enaugh room for movements. The image of this lens is tack sharp and well corrected. It will produce a flat field which is perfectly balanced for either landscape or portrature work.


Lens comes with a fix attached flange.
