    I'm after a brass lens that gives that signiature swirl and fall-off. Either a petzval or a Dallmeyer I suppose. Nothing is turning up on ebay really. I'm after a focal length of about 12" or even longer, say 15" or 17". Cheers

    Depends on whether you want to pay what a Dallmeyer Portrait Petzval runs if you want that in particular.....you have several subscribers here that will have what you want........there may be some cost effective alternatives too.....and yes I have several Dallmeyer Patent Portrait Petzvals......What format ?

    enough to cover an 8x10" Cost effective is good! I would just like something that gives that 'look' without paying hundreds of quid
