    I am selling my kit of Mamiya TLRs & lenses. I have not used it more than once or twice it in the past 3-4 years. I prefer to sell it as a kit, but I know that may be a lot of TLRs for one person to absorb...

    Mamiya C-220, w/ WLF, excellent shape, new seals about 5 years ago - $150 & shipping
    Mamiya C-3, w/ WLF - $100 & shipping
    80mm black (blue dot) - $125 & shipping
    80mm chrome - $60 & shipping
    180mm black, small dent in viewing lens ring - $115 & shipping
    65mm chrome, w/ leather case, viewing lens has some cloudiness, taking lens is fine - $65 & shipping
    Prism finder, w/leather case, outer housing has small crack that does not affect performance - $70 & shipping
    Porro finder, w/ leather case - $40 & shipping
    2 heavy duty TLR L-brackets - $25 for both & shipping

    All lenses have screw-in 3rd party lens hoods

    $600 takes it all. Paypal, cash or PO money order. Shipping & insurance extra from Houston or local pick-up.

    Someone should pick this up. Looks like a "score" to me. That kit packs a whoooole lot of picture-takin' punch for not very much money.

    Two bodies with WLFs, two prisms, two nice Stitz cable-release flash brackets, and three different lenses (plus a duplicate that can be sold) for only $600??? I am really surprised this hasn't been snapped up yet, with all the people who post on here about wanting to get into medium format on a budget.

    I'm surprised too, people have built careers with this type of gear.

    Thanks for the bump and the encouragement... My wife asked me why I'm selling it... the fact is, I now have 2 MF kits (the other is a full Bronica S2A kit I have built up over the past 3 years) and while I have had this one the longest, it is used the least. So far, the only interest has been in the L-brackets, but I would really like to sell the kit or the kit split in half - - 2 whole cameras & lenses. We'll see what comes along...

    I've been been using a similar Mamiya C330 outfit for more than twenty years and It's helped pay the bills many times shooting portraits and weddings when I really needed the money, you just cant get the quality from 35mm.

    If I didn't already have Too Many Cameras, I'd be all over this. I probably need to have unloaded something else first. But that's an excellent price for all that gear, those of you who want to get into medium format--are you paying attention?

    Summer may also just not be a great time to sell gear...if it's not gone by Labor Day, it may not be around for long after that.

    I have not gotten any interest in selling this equipment as a kit, so I am willing to break it up into smaller pieces.

    The 2 L-Brackets and the 180mm lens are already spoken for, pending payment.

    I would like, if possible, to sell the C-220 and the black 80mm together and the C-3 and the chrome 80mm together. The remaining pieces I would sell individually for the prices listed, plus shipping.

    Mamiya C-220, w/ WLF & 80mm black (blue dot) - $225 + shipping & ins.
    Mamiya C-3, w/ WLF & 80mm chrome - $160 + shipping & ins.
    65mm chrome, w/ leather case, viewing lens has some cloudiness, taking lens is fine - $65 + shipping & ins.
    Prism finder, w/leather case, outer housing has small crack that does not affect performance - $70 + shipping & ins.
    Porro finder, w/ leather case - $40 + shipping & ins.

    None of the lenses have the black plastic caps.

    I will be traveling until Aug 27 to Sept 5 with very limited access to the internet.

    Shucks. I was kinda sorta maybe interested in an "L" bracket.
    Folks, I know this gear. Actually handled some of it. It has been treated well.

    The 80mm chrome lens...is it a "later chrome" (1/500sec) or a original chrome one (with 1/400sec top shutter speed)?

    Good question... I had to get it out to look... it has 1/500 as the top speed.

    Added: I just checked the picture in my first post in this thread - - if you look at the 80mm chrome image, you can see the 500 shutter speed.

    Do any of those prisms happen to be metered?
