Derogy Portrait Petzval 220mm F4
This quite nice Petzval design lens comes in a nice condition. The
brass comes with a nice warm glow and minimal wear and its still a
beauty to look upon. The
rack & pinion is there and works, though a little tough. The
glass is in good condition, there are some hairline cleaning marks and a small edge chip in the rear,
but that wont affect image quality. But there is no haze, fungus or anything similar.
History: Derogy was one of the early optical makers who also adopted the petzval
formula and was quite famous for his optical and mechanical quality.
When you hold the lens in your hand you can feel that its a top quality
photographic lens, not a less expensive laterna magica projecting lens.
It has a focal lenght of 220mm at a speed of F4. It will cover 4x5 and even more 5x7 with a distinct petzval characteristic on the ground glass.
