    I have for sale an excellent condition Burke and James Press Camera with a Schneider Symmar-S 180mm Multicoated. Here's the rundown on the camera:

    -Bellows are in excellent shape and light tight
    -All movements work perfectly
    -Brand new custom cut ground glass
    -Revolving back
    -Cosmetically it's in excellent condition as well

    The Lens:

    -Glass is clean and clear
    -Shutter sounds accurate but has not be professionally tested
    -Aperture clean and crips
    -Includes front and rear caps
    -Some Schneideritis present but nothing that would affect image quality

    Also included is a brand new cable release. The lens is bigger than your average press lens so the camera will not close with the lens mounted. I hate to give up this awesome kit but I need a telephoto lens for my daughter's dance recitals.

    Unfortunately, I hate to but there are some dance events coming up sooner than expected and the Art Director (AKA my wife) says I better be prepared!

    Nice camera. FWIW, I recently bought some gear from Jim and everything was better than stated in his ad.

    I've researched it a bit as someone on another board suggested it but I really want the USM focusing because I'll shooting moving dancers with it (Highland and Ballet) so I need all the focusing speed I can get.

    Thanks though,

    Jim

    The USM is a high $$$ lens.

    True, that's why I'm selling this camera though to help defray the cost. Like I said, the name of the game here is focusing speed for what I'm doing and the USM lenses are faster.
