Item details

Turn of the century photography at its best! This is a 8" f4 Petzval lens made somewhere at the end of the 1800's or shortly thereafter. The lens is in great shape, glass is good (some small marks, but nothing that will affect image), there is some internal dust, it's in great condition for it's age. Will cover 5x7 and anything smaller easily, has a 10" image circle. A great vintage brass lens to give your images a fantastic vintage feel, whether on large format or digital! Get the lovely "swirly" bokeh that the Petzval lenses are known for!

Lens measures 118mm x 85mm overall. Comes with front flip-cap.

------------------------------------

I've been collecting, buying and selling camera gear for over 15 years, and have seen a wide selection of camera gear over the years. I specialize in large format antiques and other vintage camera gear, some that needs additional restoration, some that's functions perfectly as it is.

I examine and clean each piece, and I describe each to the best of my abilities, but all the gear I sell is used, and thus imperfect as am I. If you are unsatisfied with a piece or I described it improperly, I will always take a return (provided gear is returned within 7 days of arrival, and in the same condition it left).

I try to be as fair as possible, and sell usable gear with minor defects to people who want it, but sometimes people disagree on what is "usable". If you have any questions about the functionality, usefulness, condition or want additional photos of any piece, please let me know BEFORE you purchase, I'm happy to oblige.

I ship via USPS mail, and all items with a value of $75 or above shipped internationally will be shipped USPS Priority Mail insured, I apologize to my international customers if this incurs additional shipping charges, but I've had thousands of dollars worth of gear damaged overseas over the years, and I can't afford to give refunds on uninsured items.
