need info on WOLLENSAK 16" BEACH MULTI-FOCAL SERIES B I'm not sure if it's soft focus or what.

There are better people that I to discuss this, but...

The Beach was a portrait lens as I recall. 16" makes it an 8x10 lens.

Google is your friend:

The series B is supposed to be a sharp lens.

Try looking here for Wollensak lens catalogs. It may have the information you need: http://www.cameraeccentric.com/html/info.html

I hope it helps.

It's been discussed here and on the forum at lfphoto.info. Try a search, and you should turn up one or two threads.

Beach was a portrait photographer in New York state. The lens has a rear element etched in concentric circles, like a Duto filter.

I think Jim Galli has one.
