Inspired by Jim's work with his old Ross lens I retrieved an old lens I had
in the cupboard, it turned up in a job lot of enlarger lenses I found on
eb*y a few years ago.  The lens is a Busch-BIs-Telar, Series II, F7, 13.5"
(340mm) which I mounted in an OM 7mm extension tube.

According to a few sites on the internet this lens was designed in 1905 and
is an early telephoto design (the reason I can focus it using the OM bellows
which only gives about 250mm of extension) which covers 4x5 (maybe 5x7).

My example is in rough condition with numerous fine cleaning marks on the
front element and a bit of internal haze.

Here are a few images taken with the lens using an Olympus E-P1 and Olympus
OM bellows:

the lens itself.

I think it has some possible uses !

Exchanges with Moose, on the OM list, about older lenses, and his recent
studies in colors, led me to try a couple of experiments this morning.  
I mounted my Ross London No. 6 Symetrical 8-inch f/16 lens, from about 1890,
on an E-510, and put the combination on a tripod.

Aiming the camera at the Buddlei bush from quite a distance, I saw butterfly
activity.  Snapping several exposures, I got a lucky hit.

I also tried an out-of-focus view of a neighbor's red roof and some foliage.
