    1. Sima Soft Focus lens with the aperture stops: looks clean. Comes with the Nikon T mount and the front cap: $35+shipping.

    2. Polaroid 800 camera: this is a beater....dust all over, not even sure it works properly. Would be good for a project. How about $10+shipping? I got this for FREE off a kind fellow APUG member. Not looking to make any money out of this, but just recover a part of the shipping I paid.

    3. Arkay Pictrol soft focus contraption in decent condition: $10+shipping. : SOLD

    4. Brass Leitz Summar 80mm macro lens. I have couple of posts on this: http://www.largeformatphotography.in...0mm-brass-lens

    http://www.largeformatphotography.in...s-Leitz-Summar

    Basic story: the lens had haze when I first bought it. I then realized you can take every element apart and clean it. I think I managed to clear the haze out. I can't spot anything except for a small fingerprint type pattern at the very edge of the lens...maybe a few dust particles.

    $100+shipping.

    5. Wollensak Micro Raptar 50mm f4.....I hate to sell this guy. The cutest and smallest lens in my collection. Glass looks clean except for some dust particles. Cosmetically fine, except for a red mark across the body along the aperture scale. $50+shipping.

    6. Tiffen 67mm 81A warming: practically new since I might have used it for about 2-3 weeks before I sold the lens; I am asking for $20.

    7. Tiffen 67mm UV protection filter: practically new since I might have used it for about 2-3 weeks before I sold the lens; asking : $9

    Both come in original plastic boxes.

    I will cover PP.

    Thanks.

    I have the Sima soft focus lens -- it's a lot of fun to use. Using the different apertures allows you to "adjust" DOF. It's a great lens for portraits, and moody images. If I didn't have one already, I'd buy psychoanalyst_god's here.

    Hi Trask...yes...it is a lovely little lens. But I have way too many interests in DX photography and adding soft focus to that would be an overkill. Instead, I have moved my soft focus endeavors to 4x5 where I shoot with a Verito.

    Thanks.

    7. AVAILABLE: Franka Solida: it appears to be a 6x6 camera and looks ANCIENT......it is in pretty bad condition I confess. It has a Frankar 75mm f6.3 lens. Glass looks dirty, but don't think it has fungus (not sure though)....bellows has a tear. Can't figure out how to operate the shutter....

    To sum it up....clearly not in the best of health, but maybe for someone who knows how to fix it/clean it or collects antique cameras? This is a great collector's item.

    How about $10+shipping?

    I will cover PP.


    Thanks.
