    Found this lens while housecleaning recently, which is another clear indication I don't shoot much 4x5 these days.

    -- GOOD NEWS, BAD NEWS --

    I bought this to fit on my Crown, but it has issues on the slower speeds. I'm mentioning this for full disclosure -- I took it to be repaired, but the shop simply said it needed the slower shutter speed assembly replaced and declined to do it...take that as you will.
    Speeds from 1 sec. to 1/10th sec. are slow or simply stick.

    However the B speed as well as speeds 1/25th and up work well. The shutter speed ring doesn't quite extend to 1/500th as well.
    The glass is clean, though, as is the aperture blades. I can email higher resolution shots of these photos if anyone wants a closer look.

    How about US$90, plus shipping? Paypal preferred.

    Forgot to mention - this includes a front Schneider lens cap, also.

    An alert reader (remember Dave Barry..?) tells me this is a Super Graphic board.

    Well, there you go. Price is still the same but feel free to add more if you're impressed!

    Nice price on this lens, probably a little use or a bit of acetone poured into the cocking arm slot would free up the speeds that are off, I already have a 90/8 SA or I would be all over it.

    I'm interested but can't afford it just yet; if you still have it when I get the $ together, I will email/IM you? I just picked up a 4x5 - my first and it needs a lensboard & lens. I will be in touch within a couple weeks to see if you still have it.
