Looks like I'm not the only Heliar fan here. Now I have a question. I've never had a CE, but do own a 12 in. Velostigmat II. I really like the classic look given by that lens, too. So, both Kodak CE and Velostigmat II are Tessar types? I also have a Zeiss 165mm Tessar, but it gives a different look than the Velostigmat. But then, I haven't had enough experience yet with the latter.
