    It's very hard to tell. At first, these Voigtlander rapid rectilinears did not use the Euryscop name, but they were RRs. Then when they were marked with that moniker, the series number sometimes changed. It's not easy to be sure, until you measure one in your hands.

    Re: Voightlander & Sohn Euryscop Lenses

    I would like to resurrect this thread in hope of getting some help...and value of a lens which has come in to my possession. A client has asked me to liquidate many items for him and I have a Voigtlaender Portrait Euryscope brass lens which reads, "Portrait Euryscopoe Series III No.6" and has serial number 59062 written on the barrel.

    It then says, "The Voigtlaender and Son Optical Co New York"

    Am I correct in saying that this lens was from 1890.

    Hi There

    I would venture to place the date around the end of that Century 1899 ish. It should be some where around 16" & max of f4.5 . It's a fast rapid rectilinear . It has a very nice feel a bit like a Petzval but not the same look. Corrected better than a petzval but not over corrected like a anastigmat. The # 6 was to cover 11x14 plate.

    Thank you so much for your insights Louis. Do you have any estimate at what the lens is worth?

    Can someone tell which series is this one:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Voigtlander-Eury...item5d2d64da33

    cannot believe it covers 18x22 for the size of the lens and the relatively low number.

    Thanks in advance for parting knowledge.

    Hi Louis,

    How can you determine that this is a IV #7? I have a IV 7 and it has IV marked right above #7. Can't imagin if it were IV #7, why would IV be omitted. Can this be an earlier version? Having said that, it does look like my lens.

    The early series IV euryscopes were not marked with series #, Louis is correct. You can mainly tell by the construction, but also the number (e.g. 5 vs. 5A or 5B). Also, the Series IV, in my experience, is most common of all the Euryscopes. It was the first "non-portrait" euryscope (The lower series were the Portait lenses).

    cheers

    Hi Tim,

    Thanks for the answer! I know Louis knows a thing or two about lenses:-) It is a nice lens, not too heavy and a pleasure to use.
