Hi all,

I have been coming across references to this lens sporadically, and I know that the series itself was actually made (air spy lenses) and contains some fairly common lenses, such as a 5o mm f/2.7.
But has anyone ever seen, or knows of the existence of, the rarer Deltamar lenses, like specifically the 1oo mm f/1.1? I'd be happy about any real-world information.

I do have an - unclassified- US Airforce Report from 1963 about the TA-7M camera which
used them; five different focal lengths (52/70/100/150/300mm) DELTAMAR lenses are
mentioned in it including that f1.1/100mm one Wink

There is/was also a pdf-document by Anton Hermans about that TA-7M camera (used in
STARFIGHTER) http://www.flightschwein.de/html/f104gnutzungsmanagement.html
Click on that red square left of that mentioned "“Old Delft” TA-7M Aerial Camera Introduction"
to download that pdf document!

He also has a flickr site: https://www.flickr.com/photos/147470094@N02/
