    WTB -FT: Lomo Petzval art lens 2nd hand

    I'm looking for a 2nd hand Lomography Petzval art lens, preferably for Nikon mount. Who will have one in his closet, not using it anymore within one year? I don't mind one used on a DSLR, but prefer an analogue used lens, not engraved with any name. But I'm even in the market for a black coated version.

    There are at least 1.660 lenses ordered by now (and still 29 days to go) so there must be someone not using this gimmick anymore in about a year or so from now? (I'm a patient man and will need only bump up this thread for about 100 times or so).
    Let me help you clean out your closest or photo bag ;-0.

    I can pay $79.56 + actual shipping, but I'm also open for trade, for instance a choice of one of these excellent vintage pre-Lomo cameras:
    - a Voigtländer Vitoret F, with a Lanthar 2.8/50 mm lens and original brown leatherette case,
    - an Agfa Clack with original vintage case,
    - an Agfa Clack converted into a pinhole camera,
    - an Agfa Isolette with original brown case,
    - a Bilora Bella 66 - grey edition,
    - an Ilford Sportsman with Dignar 1:2,8/45 mm lens (swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes!),
    - a Beirette VSN with Meritar 2.8/45 lens in a Priomat shutter, with original black case (real LOMO style from the DDR!!),
    - a Zeiss Ikon Colora with Novicar 2.8/50 lens in a Prontor 125 shutter and original brown semi-leather case,
    - an Agfa Silette with Color-Apotar lens in a Prontor shutter,
    - an Isco REGULA Sprinty BC 300 with Isconar 45 mm lens in a Rectamat shutter and non-relevant light meter, with the original black case.

    All cameras are in good working order: all electronics are fully tested and I'll even include a special art film (*) with every camera. Mail me for photos of any camera.

    I also have a special TELESOR variable zoom close-up auxillary lens for trade: will fit any lens 52mm. Allows you to do some really close-up photography. Japanese quality (no lens caps included).

    I don't think these are even available yet. It could be awhile. Last year I bought a ~90mm Darlot Petzval and had SK Grimes make an F-mount for it. Total cost was under $500 and I have a real 1870s vintage lens.

    I doubt anyone here is dropping $300-500 on one of these with the intention of never using it again. People here seem to be strapped for cash, if anything.

    I'm sure the RFF classifieds will have a number of them in a year's time.
    See my work at my website CHRISTOPHER LANGE PHOTOGRAPHY

    People do that in fact very often. Contax G1, G2 was one example in past, many expensive dSLR's - people pay premium price, and when new model is out - sell old one for <25% price. Just wait when lomo gets Petzval version 2 (and they will get it - why not, it will sell like crazy) - people will sell version 1 for peanuts


    BTW - I am second in the line :WTB used Petzval nikon mount

    cheers,
