    This is a good clean lens; no scratches, no fungus, no internal haze.

    The Copal 1 is sticking below 1/4th, but after some exercise even that began to "go through the motions". A basic CLA and the shutter is ready to go. Fast speeds sound very good and the aperture is clean as a whistle. F-scale is a screwed on plate, so adapting this shutter to another focal-length lens would be a breeze.

    I don't know much about this lens and wouldn't mind knowing more. By all accounts it should be a fine performer on 4x5". As far as I can tell it is not a convertible lens.

    I'm open to trading for other lenses (4x5" or Canon-brand FD) and would love to find a 120mm Angulon (trade + cash perhaps).

    Or please make a cash offer that suits your budget.

    International is welcome, Paypal preferred (gift option, you pay fee) and I'll pay the 3% to APUG.

    BUMP.

    Any idea what this is worth? I'd be happy with $150, but make an offer.

    If someone is at all interested in this lens, please let me know. Could be a great way to get a cheap Copal-1!

    Trades welcome; let me know what you've got.

    A good lens in a good shutter, just needs a CLA. How about $55 shipped? Make an offer please!

    Will this cover 5x7?

    Hi,

    I'm pretty sure it will cover 5x7", but I need to double-check. Hopefully someone like Ian C will chime in.

    I'm fairly positive that someone told me it would.

    Darn it! To much consideration, I should've just give in to the temptation :smile:
