    I'm selling my Kalloflex tlr, serial 107373, which was cla'd by Ross Yerkes this past spring. It has the unique connected focusing and advance lever making it very convenient in terms of ease of use. Everything works as it should, the shutter speeds are accurate, the lenses are clear. The taking lens has a thin cleaning mark but it has no affect on the images.

    When I purchased it the round knob at the end of the advance lever was gone (since I bought this one, I noticed another Kalloflex on Ebay also missing the knob, this could have been a problem that the model had) so Ross Yerkes replaced it with one that is a little smaller than the original but works just as well. He also replaced the leatherette on the front and the right side. The rest of the leatherette is original and in great shape. It requires an adapter to use a cable release, I have a spare if you need one. He also took a plastic Yashica lens cap and modified it so it fits on the camera.

    The camera feels very solid, they definitely made it to last. It's heavier than most tlrs (although not as heavy as a Mamiya C220 or C330).

    I've used Rolleiflexes, Rolleicords, Autocords, Yashicas, etc. and this camera is at least as sharp as those, it is a fantastic photographic instrument.

    My favorite tlr. So easy to use. The combined film advance & focus control is super. If you are considering a tlr, this should be at the top of your list. Bump for a great camera.

    Bump for a price drop: $300 via Paypal or postal money order includes shipping in the U.S. Paypal for International shipping, PM me for an international shipping quote.

    I will also consider some trades to lower the price, especially 120 film. In terms of cameras or lenses, I have had my eye on the Contax copy Kiev 4 or 4am (especially the 4am) or a Helios 44-2 58mm M42 lens for my Spotmatic.

    Chris.
