    Has anyone got or can me point to a Zeiss Tessar 13.5cm f4.5 depth of field chart? Can't find on google, etc.
    This is for a 1920's Tessar f4.5-45

    thanks

    Just use one of the on line depth of field calculators: http://www.dofmaster.com/dofjs.html

    It's a function of focal length, not specific to individual types/makes of lens.

    On looking at this site it is not what I wish for, I should have been more specific, I would like an original scan of a Zeiss depth of field chart for a 13.5cm lens. Thank you

    Any 135mm lens will have the same DoF at the same settings on the same format. It doesn't matter if it's Zeiss, Schneider, Voigtländer or Nikkor.

    Just use the f4 figures, DOF is going to be quite restricted at f4.5 anyway and these 135mm Tessar's aren't that sharp (edges/corners) until f22 anyway :D
