    I see I haven't used this in ages, so I'll toss it out to the crowd.

    I'm offering a 14 inch Red Dot Artar, along with the original barrel and a set of adapters I made to mount the individual cells into a Copal 3 shutter (nota bene: no shutter included in this offer). What is included is a mounting flange for the barrel, along with a 4x4 lensboard and a Deardorff-shaped 6x6 lensboard, both bored for the mounting flange. Yes, the lens does cover 8x10, and is a treat on a 4x5, if you've got the bellows for it.

    The lens is in good shape, but certainly not mint - there are the seemingly inevitable "cleaning marks" present, but not at a level to affect picture quality. In any case, you can be the judge of that. As with most things I sell, I'll be happy to take it back for a full refund with no questions asked. You will have to pay the return postage, however.

    I'll offer this at $275 + shipping ($10.70 domestic USA, more international) and see who's got easy money in their pockets. I think it's worth that much, but everybody's so poor these days that things don't sell for what they're worth. Check back every once in a while, as I'll do the 'bump & drop' until it goes. Paypal's OK.

    OK, morning's over in the East and nobody's rushing to grab this fine lens. How's about a little price bump?

    $250 + shipping. Paypal still OK.

    For those who haven't seen one of these, I'll attach a photo showing how compact they are, at least in comparison to something like a 355mm G-Claron.

    BTW, front and rear lenscaps are included.
