    We don't see too many coated Heliars in this focal length.

    The diaphragm has... 18 blades, and operates smoothly.

    I purchased this lens 2 years ago and had it professionally mounted on a genuine Sinar board* - intending to make portraits - for which its is truly an ideal lens.

    Botanical images have beckoned me, so this lens needs a new loving family.

    Asking $900.

    At wide apertures, it gives heavenly blur, and razor sharpness. Stopped down, it's just plain razor sharp. Excellent for 4x5, 5x7, and 8x10.

    * Note the red indentation, to accommodate a Sinar shutter.

    Change of heart I notice :D

    Asking $950, on this forum first. After that, it goes to APUG, AZO, and eBay at a higher price.

    Don't show pictures made with it...that just makes me wish even more that I wasn't too broke to go for it. :D

    If my Mac wasn't dying I could've actually bought it. Lucky that Adam made me look at computers *first* before I got to look at photo gear. :D
