Found another nice looking lens from a dump – it’s in a good condition, could be from an OHP or such…

So, I cleaned it and made a simple cardboard lens board to be able to use it on a view camera…

Tried to figure out the focal length and aperture… I put the lens on Tachihara 8×10 camera and made some viewing tests. The focal length seems to be 300 mm and the aperture about f:5. So, a nice and fast lens — and will easily cover 8×10, allowing quite a lot of camera movements too! I’m hoping to use it for wetplates some day.

By the way, the lens measurements were done with a view camera TTW (“Thru The Window”) 😉 , because it is so damn cold outside: -25 C / -13 F.
