    Well, I was extremely tempted to purchase this one.
    :surprised:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=180192360711&ssPageName=STRK:MEDW:IT&ih=008

    I was willing to bid double plus what this item sold for; fortunately for my life (given the fact my better half had recently put the LAW DOWN and it would not have been a pretty ugly sight to see my remains next to the side of the road), I refrained from bidding too much. I figured I could have smoozed my way out of it for around $650, but any more than that I truly would have been road kill.

    Dagor77 (Andrew) had a truly sweet 8x20 Korona and it would have been a nice 'N light rig (13 lbs.) on my back......

    I Guess, I will have to just get the 11x14 working and use it with my V8.:D

    I hope who ever purchased this ULF rig will post some shots!

    If she didn't for the camera she certainly would have when you bought the film holders... :wink:
