    Near perfect condition, glass perfect, barrel has some very light wear. Comes with retaining ring and front cap. I have no reference point on what these are worth so taking offers. Will cover 16x20.

    I also have a 480mm f/9 in the same excellent condition.

    Is this a process camera lens?

    Is this from a process camera or for what purpose was it originally designed?

    My sidebar truncated this headline so it looked like it said "f/1" rather than "f/14"! I looked in mainly to see if the lens was shown next to a good-sized building for scale. :smile:

    They were originally designed for process or copy cameras but do well focusing at infinity.

    I picked up a 480 f/9 for 280 on the auction site. There's also a 480 Rodenstock for 295.

    price?

    Also, I'm having trouble thinking when I would use this where I could actually focus it. Seems a tad dark for focusing. Any experience? (on either lens, actually)

    I'm taking offers for a couple of days. I haven't tried either lens on a camera (since I don't have one big enough) so I'm not sure how it'd work. I know I just sold a Nikkor-T 1200mm f/18 so f/14 isn't completely impossible to use.

    Hello,
    I'm in France, could you give me the weight of this lens ?

    Best Regards,
