L.W. Kranz Wide Angle 350mm F16
Condition: This impressice piece of brass and glass still looks astonishing today. The brass is very nice here, there is some wear and it shows its authentic golden patina. The glass is a great condition also, beeing clear and showing only the occasional cleaning marks and tiny specs.
The lens offers a 90° angle and thus a very large image circle, making
it one of the very few ultra large wide angle lenses that remained.
Lens comes with a rotating aperture, which works fine. With its 90° imaging angle it has an image circle of about 550mm wide open, which is enaugh to cover formats of 40cm x 40cm (or 14x17). It can be stopped down in which case it should also cover 16x20 formats.
The lens comes with a fitting flange and the original leather lenscap.
