  5. Carl Zeiss Jena 70cm f5 Triplet

    Carl Zeiss Jena 70cm f5 Triplet

    £449.00

    Huge Carl Zeiss Jena 70cm f5 Triplet. This is an German military lens by the masters of lens making Carl Zeiss.

    Coverage is unknown, I estimate it to be around 30" at least at infinity. Would be great for mounting in the side of a van or trailer for large format wetplate.

    Paint on the lens has all but come off, there's some surface rust on the rear element retaining ring and there's also some scratches to the rear element, this doesn't appear to affect the image quality when viewed on a ground glass. There's some minor dust spots inside the lens and possible a couple of small areas where fungus has once lived. overall the glass is very clean though. No flange is provided.

    These normally sell for double what we're asking but we've priced it low to reflect it's external condition
