    Wow, that's a nice lens. At this diameter it's also pretty fast, isn't it? I'd guess something around 5,6...

    Just out of interest, what was this lenses original purpose? Some ULF projector lens?

    For new uses... just build a focussing rig and attach it to some 35mm SLR. Maybe an Olympus Pen F :whistling:

    How about going all the way and mounting it on a Minox submini; I don't think coverage would be an issue :smile:

    I guestimated this to be a 600mm F6.5.

    It was not build as a projector lens, even though it has no slot for waterhouse stops. Too early.....

    But for big negatives (how big I don't know - these Petzvals are always very big compared to the negative size they were ment for (sharpnes fall out))

    But I have a 16x20camera where it might fit - or else I think it would look great on my Gandolfi 12x16......
