    1.) Wollensak 209mm f4.5-f32 Raptar Copy lens. Heavy coating, 20 blade diaphragm (indicates a quality lens). Comes with a mount that would serve as a retaining ring or could be adapted as the male part of a focusing mount. The thread on the lens, I understand, is a standard 67mm and allows hacking (see quotes below).

    "I found an old T-Mount Vivitar 200mm f3.5 lens, which is a good fit for the focal length of the Wollensak enlarging (sic) lens...I removed all the glass elements from the Vivitar lens, and, I thanked heaven, twice, that the enlarging (sic) lens has a standard 67mm thread, and the Vivitar also has a 67mm filter thread. A match made in heaven! ...When I first looked at the pictures, my jaws dropped. The details this lens can resolve is simply astonishing..."

    Exc+, $75 plus shipping.

    2.) Rodenstock Apo Gerogon 210mm f9-f64 Apo Copy lens. Also Exc+ $75 plus shipping.

    Both lenses cover at least 4x5 and probably 5x7. Photos on request.

    Bump. $60 each plus shipping, for sale to USA and Canada. Photos on request. Would consider swap for a wide angle lens for Mamiya 645.
