Darlot Petzval 150mm F3.8
This quite nice Petzval design lens comes in a nicecollectors
condition. The brass parts come unpolished with some patina, there is minmal wear here and there but its still a beauty to look upon. The
rack & pinion is there and works smoothly. The
glass is in good condition, there are the usuall cleaning marks and tiny specs like always, but besides that there is no haze, fungus or anything that would impair the
imaging quality here.
Its engraved with 'Darlot - Paris - DA'
It has a focal lenght of 150mm at a speed of F3.8. It will work best as a portrait lens for 4x5 formats with a distinct petzval characteristic on the ground glass.
Lens comes with a flange which is not original but holds the lens well, and also with a lenscap which is maybe not superfancy but also works well here.
