Topic: Carl Zeiss Jena Tessar 3.5/75 (modified to M42)

Originally mounted on a 1950's Weltax 6x6 camera, this Tessar (including its Tempor shutter) was removed from a broken Weltax and modified with a M42 mount. Therefore, it can be used on any 35mm (D)SLR camera.

- 4 lenses in 3 groups, single coated
- mfd 0,95m
- f3.5-f22, 10 aperture blades, slightly rounded
- Tempor shutter - B, 1s-1/250s - it has to be operated at "B" to get some light through the lens, obviously smile
