    LGM's Make a Haul #3 Convertible Anastigmat

    3rd up, and I'm getting sleepy, so this may be it for tonight.........or not.


    Maybe it's time to do a little Time Traveling of your own......and this lens can take you there.


    You've just rolled up to the magnificent tortured terrain of Golden Canyon, Death Valley in your new black '38 Ford V8. You tell your driver, your OH so easy to look at driver, to pull off the dirt road right here.


    While you're setting up the RIes, your assistant, yes, the one with the legs that go all the way to Beersheeba, her, .......... now where was I? Oh yeah, your assistant brings the case with the new Century Universal. You press the button to open it and your eyes fix on a gleaming Gundlach Turner Reich Convertible Anastigmat.


    You are of course, Edward Weston, and with the generous funding of the Guggenheim fellowship, you've bought the best tools money and technology can provide.

    This TR is in wonderful shape. All of them show a bit of yellow balsam at this point. Nature of the beasty. This one is in the top 10 percent of all of them I've had come and go. The glass is gorgeous. The shutter is consistent if a bit optimistic. $225 + shipping please.

    Beautiful lens. I may be interested. When you talk about the "yellow balsam," are you talking about the glass itself? Also, can you tell me the focal length of the lens at each combination, and also confirm that its coverage is for 8x10? (I generally shoot 4x5, so I would need to adjust for that.)

    Thanks,
    Jason Weston (great grandson of Edward)

    Hi Jason.

    I need to update the ad. In fact that lens is sold and I just mailed it off yesterday. Welcome to APUG. Do you have some things on line to look at?

    Best, Jim
