    Coated Commercial Astragon 210mm lens. As the name implies, these were made in Japan in the '70's to fill the gap when Kodak dropped it's wonderful Commercial Ektar line.

    It's a Tessar like the Ektar was. Has cleaning scuffs on the front.

    This one in a former Polaroid Copal 1 shutter. These industrial shutters don't open quite as wide as regular Copal 1's. Note the aperture begins at f8, f6.3 isn't available in this shutter.

    Great lens for a starter camera. Shutter is accurate and it's easy to use. $125
