Famously used by Orson Welles to shoot many shots from "Touch of Evil", dating from 1956. Over 60s years old, but in remarkably good condition.

Some minor cleaning marks visible on front and rear optics. Minor dust. These do not effect the image.

Casing shows signs of wear, paint loss, marks, minor scratches. None of these effect operation.

Aperture works fine, but could do with a service. Focus is smooth and precise.

Lens can be adapted to be used on mirrorless cameras, MFT, E-mount, L and X mount.

It cannot be adapted to Canon EF or Arri PL.

Lens is much in demand for rehousing to Arri PL by Zero Optik.

I own three of these lenses and they are without doubt the best vintage wide angle I've ever used. Often used as a wide angle to compliment Bausch and Lomb Baltars.

More photos available on request.

Will post worldwide at cost.

Price: £1450 ono
