Dallmeyer 2A Portrait Petzval 350mm F4
History: The Dallmeyer Fast Portrait series A and B are well known for their incredible image quality. For decades those lenses were the most sought after portrait lenses out there. The A series featured an open aperture of F4 with a wider image circle compared to the B series. The 2A with its 350mm focal lenght is one of the best choices for 8x10 work, but cna also be used up to 12x12 formats.
The serial number is: 52.711 which puts the lens in the early 1890ies.
This beauty comes in a really nice condition. The brass shows only light
wear, and a nice golden patina. The rack & pinion
mechanism is complete and working. Also does the soft focus in the rear
moves well from I to IIII. The glass is in a really good condition,only the usuall cleaning marks here and there, besides that its super clear and clean. A true beauty to hold in one hands and also on the groundlglass!
It comes with the original flange and a really well made leather lenscap.
