Vintage Carl Zeiss Jena 165mm f4.5 Tessar Lens - READ FOR CONDITION - (#3). A vintage Carl Zeiss Jena 16.5cm lens in. This is an early Tessar lens that did not have a diaphragm assembly.
Instead it used drop-in inserts by unscrewing the lens and dropping in the insert (a bit like Waterhouse Stops), but only one insert is provided, marked "8", presumably f8. This gives you the option of either f4.5 (maximum aperture) or f8. It is shown next to a currency note in order to give a sense of scale but please be aware that the currency note is not included. _gsrx_vers_1281 GS 8.3.5 (1281). _gsrx_vers_1292 GS 8.3.6 (1292).
