If Lenses Could Talk . . .

Jim Galli


Sorry about the crappy phone picture. Just received out of Russia. Voigtlaender Euryscop Series III Portrait No IIIa. A fabulous portrait lens, but . . . think about it . . . This lens was already 10 - 15 years old when the Soviets murdered Czar Nicholas and his family. Wouldn't you love to know what portraits it made in Russia a hundred plus years ago. It is about 222mm and covers half plate size. It came to me from Moscow. Gotta love modern Ebay.
