    E Suter Basel Stellar 450 mm f5,any good?

    I just bought this lens from famous auction website.

    E Suter Basel Stellar 450 mm f5

    after I took out the glass, seems it is a six glass two group, dagor type lens.
    any one has experience with it? it would be really good to share a sample image.

    Thanks

    The Stella is a very fast aplanat design - similar to the series III and IV Voigtlander Portrait Euryscopes.
    If you look at

    you will see that the Stella is a rebadged 20th version of an another aplanat made in the 19th C.

    thanks Steven
    The glass in this Stella is very thick, and I can see there are three piece of glass glued together in each group, more photos are attached

    Might want to add your serial number to the serial number thread. Nice catch!

    I own two suter "STELLA". One has a focal length of 29 cm, the second of 36 cm.

    Here is an example of a portrait with the 36 cm focal length:
