    FS: Two 21-1/4" Process Lenses in Barrel

    Process Lenses!
    21-1/4" f/11 Kodak Copying Ektanon, and
    21-1/4" f/10 Wollensak Apochromatic Raptar

    I'm clearing out some gear. Here are two long-focus lenses for long shots on 8x10, or "normal" shots for ultra-large format. Both are barrel lenses, there are no shutters. Descriptions of prices follow.

    Please Note: I wait for Paypal to clear to my bank account before shipping; this takes about 3-4 days.

    $180 or best reasonable offer

    I've done some googling about this lens and seen "testimony" from ULF shooters who say this covers 12x20. So don't worry about coverage!

    This lens appears to have been well used. It's got print shop grime on the barrel and retaining ring, but the glass is really clean. It's coated with hardly any haze and very few very fine scratches. It's one of the nicest process lenses I've ever seen, and I've seen quite a few.

    You won't find a sharper shooting lens than this one.

    Weighs about 1 lb 10 oz., so figure 2 lb 10 oz shipping weight from 90027.

    This appears to be a lightly used specimen, amazing considering its vintage. The glass is some of the cleanest I've ever seen, with just a bit of speckling around the perimeter of the outside of the front and rear elements that didn't show up until I cleaned it. I believe that this will disappear over time as the moisture leaves the coating, but I have to mention it.

    I've also noticed a very few barely perceptible hairline "cleaning marks", and it needs a bit more thorough cleaning, maybe with Equinox. But there's nothing on the glass right now that will affect the image.

    The barrel and retaining ring are also in really nice shape, very clean for a print-shop lens that must have seen plenty of use. It doesn't have the usual grime that these lenses tend to exhibit.

    Weighs 1 lb 4 oz, so figure 2-1/4 lbs shipping weight from 90027.
