JML 56mm F1.9 Ultra fast Ultra wide / Macro large format lens for 4X5 camera


This is the legendary JML (made by Steinheil) 56mm F1.9 lens. Originally designed to be used as an Extreme Macro lens for 4X5, with magnification of 1:1 and more.

Covers 4X5 at close up, but has a smaller image circle when focused at infinity.

An amazing super wide lens for a pack film conversion project, or extreme macro use on any camera.


Multi-coated glass is clean with some minor dust specs inside.

Shutter is good and responsive at all speeds. Speeds sound accurate throughout the range.
