    I have a Pentax 6x6 MLU, with non-metering prism, 105mm f2.4 lens, strap, right hand custom grip, all in good condition (based on research at auction site and KEH I'd put the selling value at about $400).

    What I am looking to get is a Leica brand screwmount normal lens for a recently acquired IIIb. I am open to model (e.g. Elmar collapsable f3.5, 2.8 etc). and am willing to top up the trade with $$$ depending on the lens. I need a good quality shooter, coated.

    Thanks in advance!

    John

    Ive got a summitar with adaptor and hood and both caps that i mighr be interested in trading. it is coated with the 10 blades. There is dust on the front element becuase i dont want to clean it and there is also a little dust on the inside. I cant see any fungus or any other problems.

    Where were you when I had a Summicron that was useless to me?

    Unfortunately, it had the worst cleaning marks I've ever seen, but otherwise, it was impeccable. I traded it for a Canon (because I couldn't pay for the repair) and then traded that (with a Canon VT) for a Speed Graphic.

    But to be honest, I've kinda always wanted to play with a Pentax 6x7. I've held one, but never gotten to run film through one.

    Anyways, good luck. Looks like you already got at least one result.

    Sorry, and yes a trade has been arranged.

    I am reluctantly trading my 6x7; trying to avoid divorce court :smile:

    At least it's going to a good home. Mine was a gift from my wife--it was the subsequent 645 and then the Speed Graphic that got me in trouble. :redface:
