    Thanks Steve, I will use this information later.

    Right now I am looking for the brand names of the lenses. Zeiss called it the Tessar, Agfa called it the Solinar, Voigtlander called it the Skopar...

    Same thing for triplets.

    Any other names for a Heliar equivalent (on a MF folder, please)?

    Looking at the lens, the outer most ring has the shutter speed and "COMPUR-RAPID".
    The next ring in has the f/numbers and "F. DECKEL-MUCHEN".
    The lens itself has "Tessar f = 7,5 cm Carl Zeiss Jena Nr.22 ..."

    I hope that helps,

    Steve

    In no particular order:

    Ansco Anastigmat, Wollensak, Rapid Rectilinear, Modico Anastigmat, Vidanar, Trinar, Ludwig Meritar, Certar, Ernoplast, Tenastigmat (Goerz), Dagor, Dogmar, Syntor, Celor, Hekla, Litonar, Leonar Anastigmat, Aldis, Beck, Anticomar, Ektar, Meyer, Gewironar, Steinheil, Periskop, Opton.

    Oops... Didn't read the line saying only 120 film. But most of these were for 120. I can check if you wish.

    Thank you.

    Yes, please do. I am trying to limit this list to cameras that people will want to use and are readily available.

    I find that cameras that are pre-1930s, with only the brilliant finder, usually are not as popular with users as the later, more practical models.

    Please weed out the manufacturers too. Wasn't Wollensack a manufacturer and not a lens type?

    Yes and no. They surely made lenses for many cameras but there were also lenses simply labeled Wollensak.
