4 inch dallmeyer f3 petzval. excellent shape.
here is one of the nicest examples of an early miniature lens from Dallmeyer. the only way you would get a nicer example would be to have gotten it right from Dallmeyer himself!
This is a 4 inch f3 lens. this is perfect for those wanting to shoot on digital or a medium format hassy or the like. super sweet. it was made about 1866.
the glass is in excellent condition. the brass as you can see from the pictures is super nice. it has the original flange. the original (?) cap is also included and is in excellent shape.
The image is stunning. it swirls like crazy if you want it to. the portraits will be awesome. covers 2x2....perfect for those small speed graphic cameras! the flange OD is 72mm. ID is 49.5mm....maybe it will fit a modern shutter.....
you will not find one like this again very easily. this is for a collector or a discriminating user. $925 or best offer for this gem. do not miss out on this lens.
I'm offering a trade. My lens philosophy is to buy it now for the best, let everyone else haggle for the rest. I have a Hugo Meyer & co - Goerlitz. Doppel - Plasmat 1:5.5 F=48cm D.R.P. Dr Rudolph. Convertible to 1:11 F=83cm. I've had it for a long time. I just don't want to rip my V-8. Too heavy at 480 not enough camera for the 830. I used it once for night time exposures. 480 FL, 35 min WFO. My red dots don't have any complaints about it living in the bag beside them.
not for me. i just sold a plasmat like yours..just a bit shorter. a 360mm. nice lenses.
