I am looking for a portrait lens, prefer an old lens, something not highly corrected. I would like something that will be nice for shooting wide open for portraits. I have been looking all over eBay for one but really don't know which one would be right for my needs. I don't have a packard shutter so would prefer something in a shutter but I know a lens like I am looking for is normally in a barrel. I could always find a shutter to adapt the lens to once I find a lens, or just use it as is with a dark slide as a shutter with some Agfa 25 ISO film I have. Anyway if you happen to have a nice old brass lens laying around in a drawer you would like to sell please shoot me a PM or email (colinmpritchett at gmail dot com). I would love to see a couple of photos of the lens before buying if at all possible. I would prefer that it has a working aperture or waterhouse stops but not a deal breaker as I will be using it wide open most of the time, if you have a flange or retaining ring that would be great as searching for one or getting SK Grimes to make on is hard to find or expensive. BTW: I need this by the first week in June, I would like to take some portraits of my aging father when he comes for a visit. Thanks!
