Yeah there was a tessar type of Seagull 4a, I never tested one,
they are quite rare...
but I like the standard HAIOU 85 lens (Anastigmat 3 elements but very high quality with Zeiss Glass imported from former GDR, its sharper than a Agfa Apotar of my Agfa folder), Haiou SA85 has a very nice bokeh and its sharp.
These are the older 4b from the 70s with handknob advance, they are reliable and the SA85 is a good simple lens....astonishingly good, I have seen less sharp Tessars in other cameras compared to this nice Anastigmat.
Do you know wether the later Tessar 4B also had imported Zeiss lenses?
When was your camera built?
I never saw one.
Could you please tell us code of the lens HAIOU and than the number of the tessar type?
Is it even called "Tessar" if yes its defintly a Zeiss split off....maybe older
Rollei lenses that Zeiss still had on stock during the 80s and later sold to the chinese factory?
