Arrow Images from Zeiss Ikon Tenax II with 4cm f/2.8 Tessar

Hi, everyone,
I have developed a few rolls shot with ZI Tenax II, equipped with 4cm f/2.8 Tessar. Mine was made around 1939, so Tessar it came with is uncoated.The only other person I know about having this camera is Mike Elek, but his is equipped with 4 cm f/2 Sonnar. So, following are some images from mine. If you happen to have it, please join e in this thread.

I have forgot to mention, but this camera shoots 24x24 images on 35mm film, and it it threatening Contax IIA to become my favorite 35mm RF.

I know it is rather rare, but I was hoping for seeing more images taken by Tenax II. I will upload more images soon myself.

I've had a few. My 1st, my favorite, was stolen. Currently, I have 1 working & 2 for parts (&/or to be serviced later). All have the 4cm/2 Sonnar (including 1 that was after-market coated).

Shots here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/furcafe...enaxiic193839/

Great camera. I need to use my replacement 1 more often (thanks for the reminder).

I have a Tenax II with the 40/2 Sonnar. The lens is very nice indeed. The film size is nonstandard, and people who develop their own film would see no problems, but people aiming at using commercial procession will be faced with challenges.

Beautiful images, furcafe and Raid.I really like the colors in them. I think I should start looking for Sonnar lens to use on it, especially since I like Sonnars so much.

Sorry, but I rarely take pictures of my cameras, and I don't have one. I will take one in the near future, and will post it here.

Picture of a Tenax II

Someone asked if we would post a picture of a Tenax II. Here is a picture of mine with the 40mm f2 Sonnar lens. I am also including one of my color images taken with this camera. For more information on the Tenax, take a look at my camera blog.
