Wollensak Portrait Petzval 350 mm F5
History: The Wollensak Portrait petzval lens is quite well known for its nice image quality. The lens was introduced in the early 1900is and was sold under many names.
Condition: This black beauty comes in a nice condition. The golden laquere shows only light wear, and the brass looks weel protected. The aperture works, though as with most Wollensak apertures, it doesnt form a well rounded circle. The glass is in good condition, there are a few cleaning marks here and there, but nothing that would change the image quality.
With its fast open aperture of F5 and a focal lengh of 350mm (or 14"), this lens will work from 8x10 to 10x12 portrait format (maybe even 11x14 if you really want to see alot of petzval character in your images).
It comes with the original flange and is ready to shoot!
