    It's interesting.

    The lens in the listing is located in Montreal. The guitar in this listing is 3000 miles/5000 kilometres away, in Vancouver. Same seller ??

    I have a 127mm Hypergon lens with "Hypergon Japan" engraved on it. It is definitely a "modern" lens (my guess is 1950's). The barrel housing blocks the extreme angle of view, but I believe it could be cut back on a lathe. Right now it covers about the same as my 75mm Berlin Hypergon.

    The 127 should be a cheap lens since it needs to be modified. The elements look like the Berlin glass so if it were fitted with a smaller stop it should be good though.

    Well, it may be a similar design, but I am certain it doesn't have anywhere near the coverage of the ultrawide type. That would be just plain stupid on the part of Goerz. Why on earth would they make a 130 degree lens (which is by no means easy to make) only to mount it in a barrel that vignettes at 90 degrees? A wide angle double gauss design would make much more sense.

    Ron, could you count the reflections on your lens, front and rear, and perhaps look at the lens curves, so we might discover the actual design?
