Portrait Petzval 150mm F4
This quite nice Petzval design lens was probably made by a french maker. The brass comes with a nice brass tone which shows some wear but also an authentic patina. The
rack & pinion is there and works for the most part (a bit jumpy sometimes). The
glass is in good condition, there is a hint of clening marks here and there and 1-2 tiny scratchings, but besides
that there is nothing that would impact the
imaging quality here.
The lens has a focal lenght of 150mm at a speed of F4. It will work best as a portrait lens for 4x5 formats with a distinct petzval characteristic on the ground glass.
