    A nice fast 8x10 lens in good condition. Would be good for portrait, or all around shooting. Betax No. 5 shutter is in great condition and work fine at all settings, includes flange. Aperture is smooth and round. Glass is in good shooting condition, but has some fine scratches and a few small smudges as well as paint loss on edges. Includes metal front cap.


    $225 plus shipping. Paypal accepted.

    You would need to mount the cells on a tube, and then mount the tube to your lens board.
    Some people use a piece of black plumbing pipe.
