FS: Brass Voigtlander & Sohn Euryscop IV #3...
Hi, all -
For sale is my 11-1/2" f/6 Voigtlander & Sohn Euryscop series IV #3:
The lens is in fine shape, the brass has a nice patina, and is cut for Waterhouse stops. I've made a couple stops for this; one is drilled to f/81 (for use with faster film) and one is undrilled. Buy this lens, lemme know what stop you want, and I'll drill as close to it as my current selection of bits will allow.
The glass is in decent shape, but with a few issues (none of which have ever adversely affected image quality): The front has a small, 1.5mm or so mark in the glass. It's not horrible, but deep enough that I'd call it a light scratch. The hood also has a slight dent to it (both issues marked with arrows):
The rear glass has a mark a little over a centimeter in length, and another 1mm or so light scratch. I'd guess these could be blacked out if someone so desired. I never did, and made some fine images with the lens as-is:

BTW, these are all on 10x12. The waterfall is cropped a bit; it covers 10x12 at portrait distance, but not farther out. Also, I'm including the 6x6 black walnut lensboard with the sale. Don't need it? Knock $10 off the price.
This is a classic aplant lens, with a beautiful signature and wonderful bokeh. Stopped down, it's wicked sharp. The few issues with the glass have never caused any loss of contrast or sharpness that I could detect. $325 plus insured shipping, PayPal only, please.
Too high? Make me an offer. Really. It's that simple.
Gorgeous lens and gorgeous photos.
Sale pending over to LFf.
