    I know it's not a Hypergon. But what is it?

    Do your guys think it will cover 8x10?

    I was puzzled by that lens too.

    Look forward to a lens wizard speaking up.
    When I grow up, I want to be a photographer.

    Y'know, if Goerz had made it the word "Goerz" would be engraved all over it. Until proven otherwise its someone else's lens in a Goerz box.

    Note that the rear cell is threaded externally. Its made to go into something. I have no idea what, but it may not even be a complete lens.

    I'm guessing that it is an optical component of a measuring device, not a photographic item.

    The only Goerz lens even semi-close up front is the Planigon (very similar to the Metrogon). But the back end is all wrong. I've never seen a wide angle lens with a concave rear outer surface. Ernest and Will have the best guesses so far...

    I already did take a look. Goerz used many lens names, but I haven't run across "Epigor" before. Here again, I don't think this to be a camera lens. "Epi" suggests it is a prjection lens.

    I would have bid a few bucks on it out of curiosity, but it hasgone up past my curiosity budget.
