Huh, I guess it's for floral macro photography?  Looks really soft around the edges though.  What's the mount?

Re: Still another big, odd old lens

Well, its clearly stating 1:6 on the bezel , and being corrected for Fluro , I am not surprised. These lens are just not designed to produce photographic image we commonly envision.

The 1:6 appears to be the macro ratio in its intended usage. Not too sure what that would be, though!

I just used extension tubes to focus it, never really mounted it, it's all brass and too heavy.
