Objectif Anachromatique de Artiste Ligny 310mm
History: A quite interesting lens made in Ligny which is rarily seen on the market today. The Objectif Anachromatique (d'Artiste) layout features two meniscus lenses opposite of eachother. The lens was designed by Pulligny & Puyo and offers a pictorealistic image with some nice diffusion to it. It also features a rack&pinion to increase the DOF of the final image by increasing and decreasing the distance between the two optical cells. All in all its a fascinating lens maybe not for photographers who want super sharp portraits, but rather for shooters who like the pictorealistic style.
Condition: The lens comes in a collectors condition. The brass parts come unpolished and offer a nice patina, there is minmal wear here and there but its still a beauty to look upon. The rack & pinion is there and works. The lens even has one (F9) of the original waterhouse stops included. The glass is in superb condition, i cant even spot cleaning marks here.
It has a focal lenght of 310mm at a speed of around F5. It will work best for 5x7 and maybe even larger formats up to 8x10.
Lens comes with a flange, leather lenscap and waterhouse stop.
