A failed delivery.

Postby alexvaras » Thu Mar 21, 2019 12:32 am

Hi all,

Thanks to Chinese post and their service (it was EMS) not notificating the buyer, Weltur 6x6 came back yesterday.
Now I have it loaded for my metro project and I'm not sure if I will put on sale again.

Time to enjoy both.

That is a signal from Fate - keep that camera!

I was thinking the same when I got the alert from Russian Post.

It's good to have a matched set of folders, Alex. I've got a Voigtlander Vito II and Perkeo II that I don't plan on parting with.

I love this post. :thumbup:

I never got around to buying into the Weltas, as I got sidetracked by the Zeiss Ikon cameras. :)

I see a Tessar on the 6x9 camera. Is that a Xenar on the other? I can see it's a Schneider lens.

Yes, it's a Tessar on the big one, I would like more if it would be a 10,5cm 3.8 Xenar, but I will go with it :)
The small has a 75mm 2.8 Xenar and legend says it's a 5 elements (the buyer took it thinking it was), I tried to open and check myself the lens elements but I always fail counting reflections :)

Interesting about the Xenar, as I always thought that was a Tessar-type four-element lens.

But I've been wrong so many times in the past ...

Either way, the Xenar is no slouch, even though the Tessar usually commands more money.

Yes Xenar usually it's a Tessar type, it seems only the 75mm 2.8 prewar is 5 elements (5/4) I will check mine again.
