Can you ID a E.L Wetzler lens for me?

  1. I'm sorry if this is not the proper forum for this question but would ask your help in indentifying a lens. It is in a black barrel 5" in length 4" in diameter with a mounting flange and makers mark engraved of of Ernest leitz Wetzlar. The word EPIS f=32.5cm 1:36 is engraved on the barrel. No serial number, no shutter, just one big lens. What could this possibly been used for and where might I find more information? Thanks for any help.
     
  2. Sounds like some kind of copy machine lens, doesn't it? Were you
    intending to make it part of your 8x10 portrait setup? With a FL of
    325mm and that size, it sounds like it should be more like f/3.6
    instead of f/36. Sure you didn't miss a decimal point?
     
  3. Thanks mike but I finally found out that the lens was from an
    episcope and is not usable for image capture but it might make a
    handy doorstop:)..
