I recently bought a common Goerz tenax 9 x 12 cm plate camera 1940ish in date nothing special but it had an interesting lens: Plaubel & co supra anticomer 1:3.9 f16.5 cm, I have been unable to find any info about this lens but its rather fast for its age?! any one else know of this lens?
I really donít want to shoot 9x12 sheet film on a tenax or use my 5x4 with the supra anticome , as the lens will be soft compared to my XL lens.
So I was thinking about trying to fit the Plaubel lens on a 6x9 Linhof Super Technika or horseman 985 and was interested by what people thought about the difference between the two cameras and the sharpness of the Horseman 105mm f3.5 lens Vs Xenar 105mm 3.5 Lens. Having never used or even seen either camera I have a few basic question that have probably been asked before on the forum (sorry).
Could the range finder in either camera be calibrated to the plaubel supra anticomer 1:3.9 f16.5 cm? I want to shoot some portraits with the plaubel lens and do not want to use a tripod or focus on the glass screen lastly I presume there is nothing stopping me useing Schneider lens in the horseman and vice versa?
Have attached some pictures of the Plaubel lens
