    FS - Steven Tyler for 8x10?



    If Steven Tyler was a lens, this might be him (he?) This thing is one ugly piece of metal and glass. However, that won't stop you from having photos as nice as daughter Liv, right?

    This came with a camera I bought and I don't need it. It is a B&L Tessar for 8x10, but at some point the white paint info on the lens was painted black - to reduce glare? No idea. It is approx 12", f4.5, easily covers 8x10. The iris works smooth as silk and the glass is good, just very dirty, just like Steven... Flange is included.

    Weighs 48oz. OD of flange abut 4 1/2". Approx 4" tall.

    The sunshade is bent a bit and the paint has taken some abuse, so it isn't going to win a beauty prize. However, these are terrific lenses . For an article on tessars:

    Similar lenses to this have been listed here and on Ebay for $200 or more, but they weren't nearly so ugly as this baby.

    I'd like to get $110 including USA shipping for this ugly duckling, but if that seems crazy to you, make me an offer. Non-US ok, but this thing is heavy and will cost a lot to ship. Paypal is ok, but my dog prefers USPS money orders since the tellers give her treats when we deposit them. $$ to APUG if sold here.

    Cheers, Richard

    One big difference: that lens doesn't make me worry about getting hepatitis or anything other than a good photo!

    Ok, I'll kick in $10 for a vaccination... How about $100 including shipping in the USA?

    Aw Rick,

    Ya beat me to it. I think it would have to be a lot more messed up to be the Keith Richards of lenses, a high fungus content would probably help clinch that"honor". probably
