    Speed graphic with Zeiss lens

    Hi! I picked up this camera today and Iím trying to figure it out. Iím assuming the lens is not original to the body. I cannot find anything on this lens. Is it worth anything?

    Thanks!Click image for larger version.

    That's a great lens. Your camera is probably the smaller 3 1/4X4 1/4 inch film size. Measure the glass area at the back. The cameras were sold without lens and the customer matched a lens that met his needs. That one would have been on the high end of initial costs at the time. Very high end. It's value is in the speed. F3.5 is super fast for large format cameras. Have fun with it.
