Shipping costs will be calculated at checkout.

History: This very old and very fast portrait petzval lens comes very likely from an early french lens maker. Its unbranded on the outside, which was quite common back then, mostly the side parts of the glass element offered some help, but it seems they were cleaned at some point. Anyway this small impressive gem makes a fantastic portrait lens for the 4x5 format. With its focal lenght of around 150mm and a fantastic open aperture of F3 it shows a super nice DOF with quite some character in the background area.


Condition: The brass comes in a good condition, there is only minimal wear to it. The only major wear can be found in the lenshood which seems to have been repaired at some point. The rack & pinion is complete and works smoothly. The glass is in ok condition, there are some minimal chips to the outer edge of the front and rear element. Still this will not effect the image quality of this fast shooter.


Lens comes with the original flange.
