Darlot 250mm F3.8 Petzval Lens

€700.00 Sold Out

Condition: This Petzval design lens comes in an absolute collectors condition. The brass comes unpolished with quite a nice patina, there is some wear here and there but its still a beauty to look upon. The rack & pinion is there and works smoothly. The glass is in very good condition, there is no haze, fungus or anything that would impair the imaging quality here.

The lens is not engraved on the outside (as it was common for early french makers), but the front achromat is marked on the edge with: 'Darlot Paris'.

It has a focal lenght of 250mm at a speed of F3.8. It will cover 5x7 and even fullplate format with a minimal light falloff and the distinct petzval characteristic on the ground glass.

The lens comes with a very nice flange and the authentic leather lenscap.
