    I have a very nice Orbit 375mm lens for sale.
    This is the second-cousin-once-removed of the Commercial Ektar/Ilex crowd.

    These have a really nice sharpness, coupled with a slightly softer contrast than the KCEs; here are a couple of recent image taken with this lens:

    It has a huge 468mm image circle, good for 10x12, and simply amazing on 8x10.

    The glass looks quite nice, no flaws that stand out at all.
    A few small signs of use on the barrel and shutter.

    Shutter speeds work properly, they increase/decrease incrementally, as they should, and I have had no trouble with exposures.

    Comes with non-original caps and flange.

    $450 plus shipping, OBO.

    Thanks
