I enjoy and follow the Kodak Aero Ektar lenses, though my only such lens is a 24" set up for 35mm.

Happened today upon an Aero Ektar I was previously unaware even existed. It is the 36" lens. Then within minutes I saw a second copy. I was surprised.

The second lens there is in quite beautiful condition.


Also you might enjoy this third Aero Ektar, a 7" lens mounted onto a Speed Graphic:

This is an interesting application of the lens, but not a novel one:

Note: An item having selling price in 1943 of US$800 would today be priced over US$11,000.

Oh my goodness, a two foot naked Aero Ektar just sold at auction for close to $350 shipped. And there were TWO bidders at that lofty level!:

What did these things go for as government surplus back during the 1950's . . . twenty or thirty bucks!

How times have changed! Shocked
