Turn of the century photography at its best! This is a Cooke 13" f5.6 Series IV 8x10 lens, made somewhere at the end of the 1920's or shortly thereafter. The is in fair shape, with the aperture going from f5.6-45 smoothly, glass is good but shows coating marks from where fungus was removed (doesn't affect images), the shutter works BUT sticks open badly and will DEFINITELY need a CLA. Easily covers 8x10 and anything smaller. A great vintage brass lens to give your images a fantastic vintage feel, whether on large format or digital!

Lens measures 76mm x 105mm overall, and comes on a 100mm board.


I've been collecting, buying and selling camera gear for over 15 years, and have seen a wide selection of camera gear over the years. I specialize in large format antiques and other vintage camera gear, some that needs additional restoration, some that's functions perfectly as it is.

I examine and clean each piece, and I describe each to the best of my abilities, but all the gear I sell is used, and thus imperfect as am I. If you are unsatisfied with a piece or I described it improperly, I will always take a return (provided gear is returned within 7 days of arrival, and in the same condition it left).

I try to be as fair as possible, and sell usable gear with minor defects to people who want it, but sometimes people disagree on what is "usable". If you have any questions about the functionality, usefulness, condition or want additional photos of any piece, please let me know BEFORE you purchase, I'm happy to oblige.

I ship via USPS mail, and all items with a value of $75 or above shipped internationally will be shipped USPS Priority Mail insured, I apologize to my international customers if this incurs additional shipping charges, but I've had thousands of dollars worth of gear damaged overseas over the years, and I can't afford to give refunds on uninsured items.
