  5. Re: Very early bronzed Voigtländer Petzval

    Thanks Garret, I won't polish the lens, but maybe the hood, I don't know yet. As a user first of all I need a flange for the lens :-)

    I came across a very unusual Voigtländer Petzval lens that dates back to 1852 (#4071). The lens is in great shape glasswise and it is big 16" focal length and fast (f3.8), but the lens...

  14. Re: Voigtländer Euryscop IVa #5: coverage??

    Dear Steven, thanks for your opinion. Well I noticed some differences in the catalogues, too. But what I can say is that the lens I tested has more of a 50mm opening with a focal length of ca. 46cm....

    Thanks for your responses!
    It is a 40x50cm camera and it is very very rigid, no need to have a support for the front standard. The 8kg lens is doing great on that big standard:

    Well, I'd do the repair by myself, but I don't know exactly how.

    You have to remove the whole front barrel in order to replace the screw in the inside of the barrel.
