The color balance was originally intended for Kodachrome color transparency films. They have excellent definition and resolution with lower contrast and excellent tonal and contrast rendition on film, mostly opposite of the high contrast look of modern multi coated Plasmat and similar lenses. The other goodness of these Kodak Ektars is their out of focus rendition (bokeh), sought after by portrait photographers. This item is in fully working order, glasses are bright without scratch without cement separation. Of course there is very few and tiny dust.Ilex Acme Synchro shutter (made for Kodak) wears light signs of years, and works as it should at each speed not tested for accuracy but sound good to my ear! Original mounting flange is included. A rare flash adapter bi-post/PC sync for using with modern flashstrobe is included. A release trigger is included. Original front and rear caps are included.
Original wooden black varnished box very classy! A very good lens from 1947, classic optical tool initially designed for using with Kodachrome sheet film, used by tons of commercial photographers illustrating "America way of life" during 50's and 60's.
