Darlot 220mm F3.6 Petzval Lens
This Petzval design lens comes in an absolute collectors
condition. The brass comes unpolished with some patina, there is some
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 very good condition, there is no haze, fungus or anything that would impair the
imaging quality here.
Its engraved with 'Darlot opticien - Paris - 29.697'.
It has a focal lenght of 220mm at a speed of F3.6. It will cover 4x5 and even 5x7 with a minimal light falloff and the distinct petzval characteristic on the ground glass.
The best part here is that the lens comes as a complete set: a fitting flange, 3 fitting waterhouse stops and a lenscap (not authentic, but it works well).
