J. Lancaster & Son Achromatic lens 270mm F10
History: Lancaster & Son Patent lens is a single achromat landscape lens, that was quite succesfull throughout the history. It is a well corrected and early design layout (comperable to the early french lenses).
Condition: The brass looks really good here, there are some signs of wear and patina. It is unpolished and still shows the nice patina of over 100 existance. The down part here is that the iris aperture in the front is stuck and doesnt move. The glass on the other hand is in a fantastic condition for its age! I cant spot any signs of wear there, its very clear.
With its focal lenght of about 270mm it will cover formats up to 5x7 formats as well as 8x10.
The lens comes with a fitting flange!
