    Correct, it is only a "T" nothing else. Very unwieldy gizmo. If a cop were sitting in a patrol car pointing it at me driving by, I would assume I was in for a speeding ticket.
    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    Not sure of quality but damn cool anyway.

    I've got a Zeiss Super Ikonta folder from around 1950 with a red "T" Zeiss Tessar (no star). I think it's single coated.

    Sweet, a Hasselblad Photo-Sniper. (Zenit, I think - some Russian company - has a similar system for telephoto lenses on a 35mm SLR).
