PLASTICCA f4 24cm Oscar Zwierzina CAPI Soft Focus Portrait large format lens
PLASTICCA F:4 24cm N°39xxx CAPI. A classic and one of the most sought after soft focus lens, the Plasticca was made in the earlies 1920's. The design of this lens by Oscar Zwierzina (Dresden) is an achromatic glass without aperture control, so is meant to be shot wide open (f4). Rendering is unique and you could find on net some examples. I already had several Plasticca in longer focal length, and it's the first time I get a 240mm.

It seems coverage is between 5x7in and whole plate. Brass barrel wears some signs of years, there is a small dent on front thread. Glasses have a balsam separation on the edge (see attached picture) and I guess it won't affect rendering. Estimated diameter at mounting thread: 62mm.

Definitely a rare lens and interesting tool for large format artistic photographers. Check out my other antique lenses for sale.
