greenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

I own a tessar 360 4.5 , but i am looking for a lens with a longer focal lenght and with a larger f-stop (3.5 or 4) for my 8 x 10. I am lookin g for a petzval design , the ones built around 1860, possibly a Dellmeyer. Anybody with some information? I am not looking for soft focus.....

The answer is keep checking on e-bay, a difficult task though if aperture has to be so large, may I ask why do you need such aperture? regards
