Ilex Caltar 375mm 300mm F6.3:
Excellent, versatile lens with clean, coated glass. Good working Ilex #5 shutter, recently CLA. 375mm is a slightly longer than normal-angle view on 8X10. Offers excellent coverage on 8X10 (and 11X14), with room for movements. Similar in design to the Kodak Commercial Ektar 14", this lens uses modern materials to bring that legend back to life.
