    Selling off my 4x5 outfit. (See my Wista ad.)

    210mm f5.6 Caltar II-N in a Copal 1 (same as a Rodenstock). Lens is in excellent condition, glass is clean, shutter functions perfectly, front and rear caps.

    Asking $200 plus shipping without board. $15 for board. PayPal accepted.

    Thanks, Brian

    Bump. Doesn't seem to be much interest in LF stuff right now.

    I don't see how you can conclude that in only two days. Many expensive items tend to take longer to sell than film and supplies and less expensive gear. Most 4x5 shooters probably already have lenses in the focal lengths you are selling (90, 135, 150, 210), so there's no reason to expect them to sell fast.

    Because there is a fair amount of LF equipment for sale here and on other sites that's not selling.

    I've seen this on other sites. I suspect there is some seasonality at play. My theory is that it's summer, and people are busy taking their vacations and using the equipment they already have.

    That, and the economy sucks.

    Change the title -- add "Rare", "Mint" and "L@@K". :smile:

    hi, almost certainly wouldnt be able to afford this once shipping added on, but a couple of questions:

    (1) will it work on a graflex crown graphic 4x5?

    (2) if so, will the camera still be able to close with the lens on?

    (3) does the shutter allow electronic flash (X) sync?

    thanks

    (1) yes it should work just fine on a crown graphic
    (2) no, I don't think the camera will close with it on
    (3) yes it's a modern shutter with X synch.

    thanks.

    good to know for the future, even if you've already sold this one (though feel free to PM me if that doesnt work out).

    totally off topic, but can anyone recommend a similar focal length lens (or slightly shorter...180mm) that WILL allow a graflex to close? preferably nice and fast like this one.
