Ilex Acuton 215mm F4.8 Lens in Ilex #3 Shutter


A rare, less known lens with outstanding performance. Designed and made in the USA.

One of the first computer aided designed lenses ever made.

Massive image circle, covers 8X10 with modest movements.

Offers the brightest maximum aperture of any lens in this focal length (F4.8), while still maintaining a relatively compact form factor.

Coated, generally clean glass. Made of the finest optical glass available at the time. No haze, scratches or fungus.

Good working shutter (recently serviced), runs as it should.

Minor internal dust/blemish in rear cell. This will not affect image quality and is very common in these lenses.

Includes retaining ring, no caps.

We have lens boards for most cameras in stock, just ask.
