Voigtländer Portrait Petzval 250mm F4.5

€900.00 EUR

Shipping costs will be calculated at checkout.

Very early made Voigtländer portrait petzval lens (serial is 10.125 so it dates back from the year 1860). Really nice condition: brass shows almost no wear, the rack & pinion is complete and working. The glass is mostly clean but features two small specs and an edge chip in the front and cleaning marks overall. Otherwise there is no haze, fungus or seperation present.

This lens has about 250mm focal lenght (10") and an open aperture of F4.5. It was probably designed for 4x5 portraiture work, but actually will produce the best results on the 5x7 and maybe even fullplate format (at portrait distance), where its authentic character can be seen in the outer edges of the image field.


A really fine specimen of Voigtländer master workshop.
