    Re: Voightlander & Sohn Euryscop Lenses

    I just purchased this lens from my friend, Weitwinkel - Euryscop VII, No. 3
    My friend said that it is a Protar design, f11.3, but using the name of Euryscop, anyone can give me more information about it.

    This is a design from before "the new glass" era, that is 1890 - so it is basically a RR. A "generation" before the anastigmatic designs of the Dagor and Protar! Voigtländer did make Protars under licence - but these are clearly marked as such.

    Size 3 is 7 1/3" focal length, covers 93 degrees and was made for 8x10. They produced a number of other wide angled designs (series VIII and without series numbers) at the time. It is sometimes confused with a much later series VIIa . F.18 which is much more uncommon.

    Apart from the serial number. this lens weighs 14.3 kilos, has 6 inch glass, is 47cm in length, and was sold for 15,000 euros at a European auction some time in the past!

    Re: Voightlander & Sohn Euryscop Lenses

    hi,folks.
    i just bought a euryscop III 6A lens from ebay.
    the lens serial number is 32638, seems made in 1887, but one thing strange need to confirm as below description.
    1.the figure on the lens body marked "6A(first line) Portrait Euryscop(second line)", no "III" marking,
    2.both of front and rear inner edge of glass marked "6B"

    so i'd like to know that is is a real euryscop III 6A lens, and what is the meaning of 6B on the inner edge.

    thanks.

    What an interesting thread! Who would ever think that it would run 50 posts? A great example of the usefulness of this forum.

    6B was the normal designation for the petzval lens of the same glass diameter.
    This should be easy to check: is your real element 1 piece or 2 separate elements? 1 cemented lens in back is the euryskop.

    However, exceptions are the rule for early voigtlander lenses, so it's possible they just mismarked it, or marked it differently than others. Also, without the III marking, this could also be a portrait euryskop series II. You'll have to estimate the focal length to tell the difference ( f4.5 vs. f4.0)
