french Petzval 135mm F3.3
This quite nice Petzval design lens comes in a stunning condition. The brass shows some authentic patina and was not polished. The
rack & pinion is there and works smoothly. The
glass is in good condition also, there is a tiny edge chip on the front glass, but it doesnt affect the image quality at all. besides
that there is no haze, fungus.
The lens doesnt feature an engraving, but that was a common thing with many early petzval lenses from france.
It has a focal lenght of 135mm at a speed of F3.3. It will work best as a portrait lens for 4x5 formats with light falloff and maybe a soft vignietting in the corners. The petzval character is strongly present here if you have somekind of structure in the background!
Lens comes with the original flange and brass lenscap.
