Unlike my Petzvar 3.8/120, that was made shutterless, the Petzvar 4/120 is built around vintage Synchro Compur shutter of old Sonnar 4/150 "C" lens. Therefore, Petzvar 4/120 can be used on both, 500 "V" series and focal plane 200 series Hasselblad cameras. <br> <br> The lenses with central leaf shutter ( hence "C" ) were produced from 1957 till 1970 in large numbers and their quality is very high. They are still available and after proper CLA can be used for many more years. <br><br> The optical scheme of Petzvar 4/120 is the same as of 3.8/120, and the difference in maximum aperture is dictated by the leaf shutter. <br><br><img src="./Images/Petzvar-4-120web.jpg"border="0"><br><br><img src="./Images/Petzvar-4-120-sideweb.jpg"border="0"><br><br><img src="./Images/Petzvar-4-120topweb.jpg"border="0"><br><br>Here is an image taken with the lens at f/4 <br><br><img src="./Images/Max-with-longboard-web.jpg"border="0"><br><br>And these frames were taken at f/5.6<br><br><img src="./Images/Max-with-longboard2-web.jpg"border="0"><br><br><a><a href="./Retrospective.htm"><img src="./sImages/arrowbacksm.jpg"border="0"></a><br>To Home Page</div></center></body><div style=" top: 15; left: 390; position: absolute; z-index: 1; visibility: show;"><A><a href="./Retrospective.htm"><IMG SRC="./Images/retrospect.jpg"border="0"></A></div><div style=" top: 100; left: 390; position: absolute; z-index: 1; visibility: show;"></div><div style=" top: 80; left: 200; position: absolute; z-index: 1; visibility: show;"><A><img src="./Images/Darlot-Petzval-lenses1.jpg"border="0"></A></div></html>
