Voigtländer 7B Portrait Petzval 355mm F3.2

€2200.00 Sold Out

History: This Voigtländer petzval lens comes in a fantastic and authentic condition, there are some signs of wear on the brass but its that kind of patina which should be left there. Speaking of optical quality, i think i dont have to mention that Voigtländer offered one of the best, if not the best, image quality back then.

The Serial No. is 18.111, which puts the lens into the year 1866, Voigtländers first years of production in the new Factory in Braunschweig.

With its fast open aperture of F3.2 and a focal lengh of 355mm (or about 14"), this lens will work from 8x10 to 10x12...maybe even 11x14 formats.

Condition: The brass shows quite some wear, but part of the original protecting laquere is still there, so i would leave it as patina as it is. The lens features a waterhouse slot and one authentic stop is included. The glass is in great condition too, there are minimal cleaning marks, but overall the glass is clear and in a beautifull condition.

Lens comes with the original flange and one waterhouse stop.
