    Andrew, "convertible" has a meaning. Individual cells of lenses sold as convertibles are designed to be used by themselves. They're achromatized and anastigmatic. I don't believe that a Tessar's rear cell meets those conditions.

    You guys are stretching the definition to mean "forms an image." I think you've all gone over the edge.

    Hi Dan - no doubt here that you're entirely right, as usual, and thx for your invaluable comment - yes I'm clearly stretching 'the definition' - the way that I use this Dallmeyer just gives a different image - something for others to possibly consider if they are looking for an alternative use

    thx again and regards

    How do the Serracs differ from the Pentacs? Not just in design, but also production dates?

    So - I"m not sure about the 12", but I have a 14" Serrac and it covers 8 x 10 with ease. In fact, for closer up shooting for portrate type work, I've used it on my 8 x 20 camera. I belive that a lot of the Serracs were actually used in the Military for use back in WWII and there are a lot of them without the Dallmeyer name but with the AM (Air Ministry) on them. There have been threads before on either here or APUG about the AM lenses.

    UPDATE: Dallmeyer Serrac Age & Info?

    Update: Here is the lens after stripping, polishing, and powder coat. I found a wonderfull gentleman in Olympia to machine the mounting ring and the lens hood. The hood accepts 72mm filters. He did awesome work!
