french Petzval 200mm F4
This quite nice Petzval design lens comes in a nice condition. The
brass shows only minimal wear besides one cut in the upper ridge. The
rack & pinion is complete and works most of the time. The
glass is in good condition also, there are cleaning marks present and the rear element has two edge chips, 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 200mm at a speed of F4. It will work best as a portrait lens for 4x5 and 5x7 formats.
Lens comes with a fitting flange.
