Ilex Acuton 150mm F4.8:
The 150mm is a normal-angle of view lens on 4X5 (equivalent to a 50mm lens on 35mm format cameras). Modern, multi-coated lens with massive coverage (covers 5X7). A largely unknown lens series, this was one of the first computer aided lens designs in the world. Its quality surpassed that of the equivalent German lenses of the time in every respect. Extremely sharp, clean glass, shutter sounds good on all speeds.
Ilex Acutar 215mm F6.3:
The 215mm is a tele/portrait-angle of view on 4X5 cameras (equivalent to an 85mm on 35mm format cameras). Modern, coated glass with massive coverage (covers nearly 8X10). A largely unknown lens series, this was one of the first computer aided lens designs in the world. Its quality surpassed that of the equivalent German lenses of the time in every respect. Extremely sharp, clean glass, shutter sounds good on all speeds.
