    Symmar Convertible lens in nice condition including the glass. The shutter had a CLA by Carol Miller about a year and half ago and is working nicely. Retaining ring and front Schneider cap included, sorry no rear cap.

    $200 + shipping, and I'll cover the Paypal fees.

    Thanks john, I have 4 210's and just haven't been using this one much. It was in my Speed Graphic kit, but I got a Geronar 210 which is a little lighter and more compact. Plus I never used the the lens in the 370mm configuration. Maybe I am missing something.

    hi roger

    i use mine on a 5x7 camera as a 370 ... the "focus node" is far back so
    it needs quite a lot of bellows to focus (even at infinity) ...
    it is wonderfully wide open as a 370 ..
    perfect for portraits and landscapes just as schneider says ( on their website )
    i have a toyo 45cx and wish it was able to take a long focus rail and long bellows
    so i could use it on my 4x5 ! ( i like it THAT much :smile: )

    i hope i didn't dissuade you from selling it , and i hope i didn't persuade you
    to get another camera (to use it as a 370) :smile:

    john

    Not Dissuaded, moving in July and will be building a darkroom, so it's time to sell a few things.
