Bogen Arcar wide angle lens??greenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread
Just recently aquired a 90mm Bogen Arcar f6.3 wide angle lense. Can anyone tell me anything about this lens? All i know is that it's made in Japan.
Any info would be appreciated, Shannon

The Bogen Arcar is made by Yamazaki Optical Company in Japan. Their trade name is "Congo". They have a website, but it will take some digging for me to find it. They specialize in 4 element tessar type lenses.
I've had the 180 f/6.3 for about 22 years now, & i've been quite happy with it.
If I find their website, I'll post it here.
