    Goerz Weitwinkel Lynkeioskop - more info?

    Hi All,

    I just got a new treasure: Goerz Weitwinkel Lynkeioskop Series F No4, serial 97578.
    Actually it's in really good shape, the glass looks almost perfect.

    Anyone got more info on that? Focal length? How much it covers? When it's made? How much it can worth?

    A quick view of what is available on the web place it at 1902/03 (http://motamedi.info/serial.htm#ross)
    with a value in the range of 2-300 Euros (http://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/9712605)

    The standard Lynkeioskop appears to be a Rapid Rectilinear configuration (http://www.lungov.com/wagner/c/104c.html). Wide angle versions of that type of lens are not uncommon.

    hey johnielvis, what do you exactly mean by "if the glass was messed with scratches and separation that up you wouldn't notice a difference" ?

    Whitey, you linked to the serial list for Goerz American lenses. This one was made in Berlin, Germany.

    It's a wide-angle rectlinear, and a pretty good one. Not knowing the focal length, I can't say what it covers.

    Per P-H Pont's Goerz chronology, 97578 was made no later than 1900, perhaps in 1899.

    thanks pierre! Based on this info the lens will cover an A3 sheet, that is around 20 inch. Sounds huge to me.

    Yes, I assumed that the parent company's serial numbers would be continued at the US spin-off–especially since the list started at 70001. Clearly this is not the case. The relationship between German manufacturing plants and their US expansion plants (pre-WWI) was complex and different in each case. Ah well, it was a very quick search. I'm glad better information was available.
