    Re: !!!WANTED!!! -> Nicola Perscheid, 'Portrait' Lens... Which one?

    hi folks,

    Could you spend few minutes since I would like to bid on Nicola Perscheid Objektiv 42cm F:4.5 Emil Busch Lens http://cgi.ebay.com/Nicola-Perscheid...ayphotohosting

    Do you think that the lens listed is nocked on one side... just under the (name:Emil) inscription?

    It looks a little flat instead of round shape as it should be...?

    Thank you

    It's obviously a battered piece of rubbish. Worse, Busch used the most brittle sort of pot metal for their lenses and rather than bend like brass, when they are dropped cracks appear and great pieces drop out.

    I remember to have read years ago that there actually are knock offs of Nicola Persheid lenses.
