Voigtländer Euryscop No 6 Series IV

€1600.00 Sold Out

The Voigtländer & Sohn Extra Rapid Euryscope Series IV No 6. This lens comes with a focal lenght of 21 1/3" (or 540mm) and a starting aperture of F6. According to the catalouge it could be used wide open up to 17"x14" and up to 18"x22" formats stopped down. In reality it will cover even more.

A masterpiece of german lens making from the late 1880ies. The Voigtländer Extra Rapid Euryscop offers the best of the 2 worlds, its well corrected (way more then the petzval design), but also offers a quite high open aperture of F6 (way faster then the stadard aplanat). The series number is 41.553, which dates it back to the year 1892.

Condition: The lens is in a stunning collectors condition. The brass shows almost no signs of age at all. The brass comes unpolished and with the original laquere. The glass is in great condition also! It shows no scratches, seperation or any other defect. The lens has a waterhouse slot (no stops included). There are some Euryscope lenses available, but i didnt see any other No.6 in such a near mint condition for years.

The lens comes with a fitting flange.
