Enna Zoom 85-250 f 4

Like new except for minor marks on face of mount, early Enna 85 - 250 mm (not a typo - the longest range full-frame zoom lens of the period), F4 zoom. ca. 1963 - 1973. Wonderful construction and optical quality. Very strong rotating mount and clever self-storing hood. A real rarity. Original front cap and case (showing some wear). Generic rear cap. Built in filter holder in lens mount. Preset aperture 4 - 22. Aperture and focus work smoothly. Glass has no flaws. Fits Exakta, Topcon and Alpa (with adapter). A real piece of photographic history. So good that Alpa listed it as a catalog item. The entire lens focuses rectilinearly in contrast to the usual front element focusing typical of zoom lenses. Focuses to 2 feet at 85mm. This excerpt is from Lothar Thewes history of the Alpa camera, pages 167 - 168.

Sold for US$ 249,95
