equipped with the legendary Kodak Aero-Ektar lens
The Kodak Aero Ektar lens
It all began after the end of World War II. These lenses served during the war in reconnaissance missions, mounted in the huge Graflex K-21 cameras to photograph the world, or what was left of it, after the Flying Fortress, such as the B17, had visited the theatre of war: Battle fields, towns, industrial and other strategic targets. Originally made for military purposes by Kodak and sold to the US ministry of defence for about US $ 800 a piece, as much money as a Chevrolet would have cost in those days. AfterWorld War II, these lenses where sold as a bargain for about 79 US $ to professional photographers mainly for use in their studios as a portrait lens.
