    Hello,
    First of all, welcome to APUG from Apeldoorn :wink:

    Yes, I might be interested if you can share the details of the lens, condition and price?
    I have sent you a PM (private message, right top corner under INBOX)

    Thanks,
    Bert from Holland

    Here are some foto's from a Hermagis Petzval lens the focal length is 600mm en can be converted to 300mm I have no idea about the f number but seen the large glass it must be pretty low. length = 27 cm width 12 cm (lenscap) 16 cm flange that fastens the lens to a camera. Glass diam. = 8 cm. And it is not for sale (yet). What I wanted te know from You Gents and experienced large format photographers is whether this lens is interesting for You and what would be a reasonable price. I apologize that I did not stress this clearer in my first message.

    An other lens that I have in my house now and I offer for sale is a Marion & Cie double anastigmat. Since I am moving right now I do not have my optical bench yet so I cannot give You the focal length. But I kind of remember is that it was a wide angle. glass is clean as well as the brass rack and pinion work fine. measures: high 18 cm, width (solar cap) 11,5 cm glass is 8 cm. Price? well here I have the same problem so please make me an offer, if You like, on my private mail adress.

    what you might do is go to ebay and look at completed auctions to see what it is worth.


    good luck!
