    A gorgeous old lens.

    I thought long and hard about putting it on the lovely old Fallowfield Full Plate camera that I'm also listing for sale.

    If someone gets to me in time and wants that combination we can talk about a deep discount / package deal for them both.

    Glass is excellent for a 135 year old (or more) lens. This is an aplanat type. But most aplanats begin at f8, so f5.6 is huge. I never got to make images with it (too many other toys!!) but it will have a grand round sharp / soft look especially wide open.

    $285 + shipping. Oh, it's 10 1/2" focus and could easily be pressed into 10X8 use. 3% to APUG of course.
