    Looking for a 300/4.5 for my 4x5 camera. Tessar would be marvelous but would consider anything that might work. Non coated please.

    Not quick enough I'm afraid. I'm trying to replace my 300 5.6 symmar-s

    I have a 355/3.6 projection Cooke Triplet. Somewhat coated, though.

    I have a 300mm f/4 aerial lens (gauss-type design) I would part with. It has no aperture and needs to be mounted in a barrel (the shutter is gigantic and impractical, but I do have it).

    I have a Salmoiraghi 310mm f/4.5 Phoebus lens with the iris removed. I think it is a Tessar. Heavy, and IIRC, has a flange. The Vade Mecum lists one on a 1924 camera so it is probably uncoated. If interested, I can dig it out and take some pics.
