    Hi, all -

    I came across this little magic lantern Petzval, and it turns out it's a little too short for my uses. So, it can be yours! Near as I can tell, it's about 3" give or take focus distance from the back of the lens to the ground glass, so maybe 4" EF? The glass diameter is 1.5", so it's pretty fast. The rack and pinion is missing, but the outer barrel is there. Glass is a little dirty, a few wisps, but not bad at all. Hood is in good shape - no dents.

    The lens covers 4x5 up close, but about 6x6 at distance, so it's a good candidate for medium format use. For grins, though, I took this on 4x5 this afternoon using this lens:

    You can see how narrow the DoF is, and how luscious the bokeh is.

    I'd like $120 plus insured shipping for this lens. PayPal 'gift', or buyer pays fees.

    Thanks for looking.
    Scott
