    I'm looking for a WLF for a Bronica SQ-A. I've searched most places on the net and they appear to be about as common as rocking horse poop. If anyone has one and it's in good condition, PM me and let me have a price.

    They are pretty rare. On ebay they tend to go for 100 bucks or more. Every once in a while there seems to be one that pops up for about 60 Buy It Now. Thats how I got mine :tongue:

    They're odd - they tend to sell for $60-75 but are plentiful at the $150 range.

    I'd suggest hitting up everyone with a kit including two finders. I did that for a few months and eventually found someone willing to part with one for $75. I also picked up a grip in the purchase which may have helped.

    Found one WLF while surfing around for a Bronica SQ-i prism finder myself:

    You can sometimes get an SQ-B with a waist-level finder for the price of a waist-level finder on its own. You get a bonus spare body too! The SQ-B WLF works fine on my SQ-A.
