    hey all,

    I've upgraded to some newer and lighter(significantly) glass, so these guys have to go.

    #1. Schneider Symmar Convertibe 360/620mm. Comes mounted in a Compound shutter(not sure if its a #5 or not). Shutter works great! I had it CLA'd earlier this year before my trip to Iceland(where I used this lens primarily), and I NEVER ran out of coverage! Some claim it to cover 12x20 with movements, but since I have no 12x20 camera to test it on, I'll go by their word [​IMG].

    the front group of elements has some hazing, nothing IMO that impacts image quality in any way, at least from the 100+ sheets of film I've shot with this lens. The rear cells have a bit of haze as well, and both groups have some minor internal dust, I've never noticed anything in my film.

    shutter works great, and the "old school" shutter speeds were adjusted to more modern ones by Mrs. Carol Miller(Flutot), so 1s=1s, 1/2s=1/2s, 1/5=1/4s, and so on, up through 1/60. IDK if the pc sync works or not, I've never had the chance to test it out unfortunately.

    price is $475 SHIPPED in the USA via Priority Mail, int'l purchasers are welcome, please PM me for a shipping quote to your destination(please include in your PM).
    RETAINING RING IS INCLUDED IN SALE. Felt-lined front and rear lenscaps(schneider leather ones, oooh....[​IMG] ) are INCLUDED in sale as well.

    #2. Triple convertible 12"/20"/28.25"

    It comes mounted in a Betax No.4 shutter, which the B and T modes work fine, however, it'll need a serious CLA to get fully working again on the shutter speeds. Glass isn't clean, has hairline scratches on both internal and external elements(front and rear cells), rear cell has a large scratch towards the outside of the element on the inside. I bought it recently on here from a fellow member intending to refurb and use it myself, but I just don't have the time [​IMG]. Threads on cells and on shutter are all stiff, not sure if someone in the past tried to force them, but it takes some getting going to get them in correctly.

    price is $85 SHIPPED in the USA, int'l please PM for shipping quote(not included in sale price) to your destination(please include your country in your PM).

    PAYPAL or Postal Money Order for faster delivery(PP being fastest). Personal checks are fine, but please be aware I'll wait 10 business days for them to clear before shipping the lens(es). Cold, hard "cash-in-the-mail" is fine as well [​IMG]. INT'L buyers PAYPAL ONLY.

    thanks!
