Dallmeyer 2A Portrait Petzval 350mm F4

€2200.00 Sold Out

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 can also be used up to 12x12 formats.

The serial number is: 92.583 which puts the lens in the early 1900s. This seems to be an 'inbetween' modell. It is more compact then the very early version (short lenshood) but it still offers the rearmounted difussion mechanism and a rack & pinion.

Condition: This beauty comes in stunning collectors condition. The golden laquere shows only light wear, and a nice patina. The rack & pinion mechanism is complete and working smoothly. Also does the soft focus in the rear moves well from I to IIII. The glass is in a really fantastic condition, only the very minimal cleaning marks here and there, besides that its super clear and clean. Lens comes with a waterhouse slot (no stops included).

It comes with the original flange and a very well made leather lenscap.
