very fast Portrait Petzval 160mm F3

€400.00 Sold Out

A fine specimen of a petzval design lens which comes from a German maker. The lens comes with a nice and still original nickel plating and a golden laquere. The rack & pinion is complete and still working. All in all its a very compact lens, which makes it a perfect companion for smaller cameras and field work. The best part is the very fast open aperture of around F3, which offers a fine and selective DOF for portraiture work.

With its focal lenght of 160mm it is best suited for 4x5 portraiture work (it barelly covers that format showing alot of character), here it shows a remarkable thing DOF and a characteristic petzval bokeh in the background for a small budget.

Lens comes with a flange and even a well made leather lenscap.
