    Most of this gear was bought here. Everything is in very good to excellent condition.
    You can check my rep on eBay (ggervais04) & on APUG.
    All this for $1400 + $100 for Shipping + PayPal fees (3%). If the shipping is more than 100, I’ll cover it.
    If it’s less I will refund the difference.
    I will ship to Canada & US (lower 48). PayPal preferred but will also accept personal check (check must clear before shipping)
    I will post some pictures on the weekend. Batteries not included.

    Thank you for looking & please no lowballers. I think my asking price is extremely reasonable.
    If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

    would you be willing to sell any of the accessories separately?

    I'm kind of hoping to sell this as a "kit" But so far it does not seen to generate a lot of interest. Priced to high maybe...

    Come back to me in a week or so.

    Thank you for your interest.

    I would say that your price is amazingly cheap! Perhaps it's just the time of year? I wouldn't lower it.
    How about some pictures?

    The price is good, no doubt! If I had the dough I'd jump on it. It's just finding the person who wants a full kit. That can take a while.

    If it doesn't go here after a while, you could try over on BUG (Bronica Users Group). It might sit there for a while, too.

    Parting it out will of course probably net you more eventually.

    If and when you decide to break up the set, keep the body, the lenses, the film backs, the winder, the WL finder and one prism together. Add the books and you'll still be offering a beautiful "beginners set" for anyone who wants to get started with Medium Format.
    Maybe sell the 150 mm or 250 mm separately as well.

    I have a Bronica SQ-B (the same except for some electronics missing) myself and I can tell you it's a beautiful camera to work with and the glass is excellent indeed.

    If you brake up the set, I'm interested in the MF Finder S (metered) and one of the Prism Finders (would have to check wich one works best with the SQ-B).

    I hope you'll find a buyer soon for this very, very modest asking price.

    I think it's a good price too, but it's also hard to sell larger kits for high $ when a lot of people already have their kit and just want to add to it. Someone who wants to just get into a Bronica SQ system probably won't want to pay large amounts if they aren't sure they want to invest that much time and money.

    OK since everybody seems to have their Bronica kits already, I'm open to offers for selling parts.

    Regards,

    What would you be asking for the Waist Level Finder (non metered) by itself ?
