    This lens probably began life as a magic lantern lens or projection lens, but they make great LF lenses that are less expensive than the lenses touted as 'portrait petzvals'. It has been recently cleaned and is ready to go. Approx 54mm at the threads. % to APUG if sold here.

    Description: No name approx 4 1/2" petzval, around f3, image circle a little over 4" at infinity. Again, this means you should get nice swirlies at portrait distance on a 4x5. Has detachable lens shade. Glass is excellent. Glass unscrews easily for cleaning. $140 shipped in the USA.

    US buyers have 7 days to check it out and return it if not as described, for a refund less shipping. USPS money orders; Paypal ok if sent fee-free as a gift or fees paid by buyer.

    Overseas - if I remove the rack & pinions and lens shade, etc. and pack them separately, these would probably fit in a flat rate envelope wrapped in lots of bubble wrap for around $12, USPS International Priority. On overseas sales, I'll send you the tracking number but there is no insurance, or proper tracking, and I'm not responsible once the item goes to the post office.

    Cheers, Richard

    So, how about $130 then? This is a nice lens with nearly perfect glass.
