Carl Zeiss Sonnar 1:4 f = 7,5 cm ,aluminium body, very rare lens ( 1938)
This is my favorite lens for my Robot Cameras; the Sonnar 1:4 f= 7,5 cm Nº 2772905, aluminium body, war time lens from 1941, used with the Robot II Luftwaffe - Eigentum. This is a description of the Robot Guide, from Focal Press:
Focal lenght made by Carl Zeiss, is a long focal length lens, giving about 2X linear magnification as compared with the standard Robot lenses. This lens belongs to the famous Sonnar series, know for ideally fine definition even at full aperture, and great resolwing power.This sonnar is useful for large portrait heads, distance landscape sections, detail study of architecture, nature work, and in particular animal photography at the Zoo, further for sports photography, particulary where the subject cannot be approached very close.
