Rodenstock and Nikon Lenses for 4x5 cameras. 55mm, 75mm, 150mm, 200mm
55mm f/4.5 Apo-Grandagon, 75mm f/4.5 Nikkor-SW, 150mm Nikkor-W, 200mm f/8 Nikkor-M
Four Large Format Lenses for 4x5 and 6x9: 1.) 55mm f/4.5 Rodenstock Apo-Grandagon, 2.) 75mm f/4.5 Nikon Nikkor-SW, 3.) 150mm f/5.6 Nikon Nikkor-W, 4.) 200mm f/8 Nikon Nikkor-M. These lenses came from the estate of my late friend and photography professor at U.C. San Diego, Phel Steinmetz. Except as noted below, all four are in almost-new condition; they were used very little in the last ten years as Phel was transitioning into digital. I have not used any of these lenses personally, but I do know that Phel tested his lenses meticulously before he accepted them. The fact that these four were in his "keeper" set meant that they had passed very strict standards of his own. I bought several lenses from him over the years, and each of them was excellent. All of the lenses are mounted in black Copal #0 shutters, with speeds of T, B, and 1 through 1/500 second. They are all complete with mounting flanges and each one includes a cable release. They all have original caps, front and rear. All except the 75mm Nikkor-SW will be packed in their original boxes.
Here are the details, as well as pictures of each lens:
1.) 55mm f/4.5 Rodenstock Apo-Grandagon. Apertures to f/45, Image circle @f22: 163mm (covers 4x5), filter size: 67mm. Very small ding at the outer metal edge of the rear cell; I almost missed it and I don't think I could photograph it.
Price: $700, free shipping in continental U.S.
2.) 75mm f/4.5 Nikon Nikkor-SW. Apertures to f/45, Image circle @f/16: 200mm (almost covers 5x7), filter size: 67mm.
Price: $445, free shipping in continental U.S.
3.) 150mm f/5.6 Nikon Nikkor-W. Apertures to f/64, Image circle @f/22: 210mm (covers 5x7), filter size 52mm, but includes a step-up ring to 55mm, a 55mm Contax multicoated UV filter, and a 55mm lens cap.
Price: $225, free shipping in continental U.S.
4.) 200mm f/8 Nikon Nikkor-M. Apertures to f/64, Image circle @f/22: 210mm (covers 5x7), filter size: 52mm, but includes a step-up ring to 55mm, a 55mm Contax multicoated UV filter, and a 55mm lens cap. This very highly regarded lens in the 200-210mm range would be perfect for backpacking or other lightweight large-format outfit. Small and compact; f/8 maximum aperture is still easy to focus with because of the longer than normal focal length.
Price: $395, free shipping in continental U.S.
