The Beast

Picked up this lens last weekend. Its an Air Ministry 36 inch 6.3 lens and it weighs a whopping 8.5Kg. Aperture ring is working, so from f6.3 to f16.
Solid brass (overpainted) not sure if I should strip it back to the metal, I didn’t pay much for it.

No idea what I’m going to do with it but boy is it a conversation piece.

Nephew – “You should see my new HD Apple camera phone!”
Me – “Thats nothing, you should see my new lens!”
