    Kodak Anastigmat 203mm f/7.7

    Precursor to the Ektar 203mm, bought it on a whim but I'm never going to use this instead of a 210mm f/4.5 Tessar that I already have. Clean glass, aperture closes and opens fine. Can include the large lensboard and process/copy hardware if desired, see boxed roll of 120 film for size reference.

    $45 shipped CONUS, $45 plus actual shipping elsewhere. Paypal or MO.

    I believe they where rated as covering 5x7, at least the Ektar version.

    It's in my 1946 Kodak Reference Handbook and covers 5x7, it's the same lens later sold coated as an Ektar.

    It's unusual to find in a barrel mount, the lens was normally sold in a Supermatic shutter (in the US) for the Kodak 2D and later Half plate/5x7 models. It was also made in the UK - mount 370 - #0 shutter compatible. These are well corrected for close up as well as distant uses, and sharp even at wide apertures.

    So yes it has room for movements on a 5x7/half plate camera, on a 4x5 even more I have a Mount 370 203mm Ektar in a Protor SVS and it's a wonderful lens.

    Yep, I had both the earlier anastigmat and the later Ektar. Both in Supermatic with the Ektar version in Supermatic X.
    They are pretty well regarded in the Speed/Crown Graphic world when you want something a little longer than the usual 127/135 fare that you usually see on those.
    Ian…those are both the same formula, correct? (versions of the 203)

    Its a really nice lens.

    Bruce, yes they are the same formula, in fact the datasheet is almost identical for the 8" (203mm) f7.7 Anastigmat and the 8" (203mm) the only difference is my later Kodak Reference handbook adds the words coated along with the name change to Ektar.

    Unless you've seen or used one you wouldn't realise how small these lenses are.

    I want to buy this, but i'm a bit confused: "$45 shipped CONUS, $45 plus actual shipping elsewhere." <- so non-americans pay more, for what reason?

    Man, ship this thing to overseas is much more expensive. You know it.
