    FS - Usable brass lenses at quantity discounts; $5 shipping


    I've decided to try and clear space on my desktop, so here we go - quantity discounts.

    These are mainly lenses I haven't had time to play with. Each of these intrigued me for one reason or another and hopefully they will find a new home that can use them. All of them have been mounted on a camera and focused at least. Expect possible cleaning marks and/or dust and the lens might need cleaning but all are in usable shape. There are no flanges, etc unless the listing says so.

    Prices: $75 each, 2 for $140, 3 for $195, 4 for $240, all 8 for $440; no returns
    Shipping in USA: flat rate of $5 no matter how many you get. Overseas shipping can be substantially more.

    I accept USPS money orders. If you want to use Paypal, then you pay all the fees. I'm happy with a money order.

    Would #6 or #8 work with a Calumet 4x5?

    The Busch symmetrical (#8) definitely would work on a 4x5. The Dallmeyer would work but is about 2 1/2" wide and weighs a pound. That could be heavy for your lens board/ front standard. Also, it doesn't have an aperture, so you'd need to shoot it wide open. #3 was specifically designed for 4x5 and #1 would also work and has an aperture.

    #1 & 3 are sold aren't they? I have a friend that has the camera and is only looking for a lens/board for it.

    No, the Robinson that sold was #2 but I see I typed #3 one time above.

    As of this minute, #1, #3, # 6 & #8 are available and some one has a temporary hold on #1, so it might be gone later this afternoon.

    I am waiting to hear back from my friend to see which one he would like to have. I don't think that he has a lens board for the camera so that may come into play as well.
