Hi everyone.

 

I recently bought a couple of lenses in an auction and one of them confuses me a bit ;)

 

It's a P. Angenieux zoom type 6x13 D , 13-78mm F2.2-3

 

 

The thing is I cannot find any information about that lens online.

I also have a hard time finding out what the mount is.

It's written D2 close to the mount.

 

Does anyone has any idea what that lens is? And what the mount is? What's the type D ?

 

Many thanks in advance for your help!!!

 

Dom.

Looks like a video camera lens. A bigger version of the 9.5-57mm.

Hi Jean-Louis!

 

Thanks for your answer!

 

Yes, I also think it's a video lens. Do you know what kind of mount it is?

Also have you ever heard about the "type D" range ? (as opposed to the type B of the 9.5-57mm)

 

I'm also a bit confused about the T1.2 written on the aperture ring...

 

 

Thanks!

Looks a lot like a B4 mount to me, yes. Possibly one designed for larger sensors than are currently common.

I wonder if the 1.2 is a transmission factor. It does have an auto iris motor, though.

Thanks!
 
B4 was my first guess aswell but then I wondered...
 
I believe this lens is from the mid 70s, given its look an s/n.
So, for a video lens, it should have been a very early one...
Isn't the B4 mount quite new compared to that?
 
Also, the mount doesn't have that sort of pin that you find others B4 lenses, and one of the ear has a "cut-out" in it.
After browsing the web, I thought it looked closer to a CP-16.
What do you guys think?
 
I did a test with my 7D (aps-c) and I think it would easily cover super 16.
 
Also, I'm still very curious about that "D" thing (TYPE 6x13 D ) and D2 at the bottom.
Does anyone have an idea?
 
Here is a few more pics:
