    FS: G&C Petzval

    I recently acquired this from a forum member, but it is, unfortunately, not what I need at the moment.

    I love the look it gives, the out-of-focus areas are spectacular, and yes, it does give you the swirls.

    Here's what I know, or what I was told by the previous owner:
    12 inch FL
    F4
    That's it.

    In my own experience, it covers 8x10 at infinity with slight darkening of the corners; at portrait distance, things look great.
    It has a fine, velvety smooth look on film, and is quite sharp at the point of focus.
    I have no stops for it, but there is a slot for waterhouse stops.
    The lens' own focusing mechanism is nice and smooth.
    Front glass is 3 inches across, lens is 5 inches long.

    Oh, and by the way, it has a healthy-size chip in the rear element, some of which is covered by a piece of black tape.
    All my exposures have failed to pick up this defect, happily, and the lens works as it should.

    The flange was professionally mounted to a new Toyo-View board.
    Includes non-original flange, Toyo-View lens board, and home-made lens cap (looks fugly but works very well).

    Price is $875 USD which includes shipping to Canada/USA and also includes Paypal fees.

    Here are some photos taken with the lens.
    The first two are taken with aerial film, the third was shot using Ilford FP4+.
    All were shot on 8x10, and all three were shot yesterday, May 10, 2014.
    Thanks.

    Sent you a PM, thanks.

    I would trade for the following:
    Toyo G 4x5 camera complete with GG assembly and regular bellows in ready-to-use condition with a modern 150mm lens or a cheap, sharp and fast RR lens.
    Thanks
