Want a fast one - not such a cheapo Xray lens, but a WORKING fast one? Think about that one then.
Designed by Dr Tronnier, one of the German lens designer geniuses for Farrand Corp.

Lens data is here: http://www.macrolenses.de/ml_detail_sl.php?ObjektiveNr=317

A fine piece of glass and quite rare. This is one of mine (in barrel, not shuttered):

I have that one, too, just in a green wooden box (so mine is a bit older I guess)...

These lenses always interest me. Do you have any samples from the lens Klaus?

Cheers,


Kelly.

Nope, still on the "to do list" as it requires a special camera with very shot register.

P.S: some excellent stuff on your site Kelly! Share it here please!!

Quite some lacking contrast; is it clean inside??

I see spots in the last image (f2.8 )
