    I have a very nice example of this lens for sale, comes in a Betax 3 shutter.
    This version is uncoated, and, despite its tiny size and weight, it covers 8x10 with movements.
    From what I understand, the f12.5 covers more than the f9.5 version, so that's why I chose this over an f9.5 when the chance arose.

    The glass is excellent inside and out, on both sides, not a blemish or coating mark to be seen.
    Shutter runs very nicely, and I still have the technician's actual shutter speeds from a recent CLA.
    Maximum aperture is 12.5 which is ok if you're shooting architecture or still-life or landscape; not so good if you want to shoot portraits. [​IMG]
    There is a way to make the aperture open further by removing a screw in the shutter, but I never explored that option.

    I don't have caps for it, but it will be securely packed and guaranteed to be trouble-free upon arrival.
    Includes a retaining ring and a very small cable release, but does not include the lens board.

    Asking $250 OBO plus shipping; I will cover Paypal fees.

    Thanks
