Shipping costs will be calculated at checkout.
Everybody knows and most love the Heliar lenses. They are known as one of the best portrait lenses out there. The standard Heliar will have a starting aperture of F4.5, but there are very few and elusive Heliars which were made with a starting aperture of F3.5. They offer even a thinner DOF then the standard version, and more room for selective work. This is one of those rare F3.5 Heliars out there.

It lens has a focal lenght of 165mm and will work best with 4x5 and 5x7 formats.

Condition: The metall is in a absolute nice condition, there is almost no wear to the housing and the black laquere is in a good condition The glass is in good condition also. The aperture is working smoothly.

Interestingly this lens comes in a Helicoid housing, which can be moved forth and back by turning. This might be an interesting tool for campact box cameras without a fine focus or with short bellows extension.

Lens comes with a flange/mounting ring.
