    If I were just starting in 8X10, or was serious about paring down to a single lens (don't worry, I'm not) this would be a contender!

    Back in my Deardorff days I made many wonderful images with one of these. For architecture, the Deardorff bellows would groan and complain well before this lens would run out of movements.

    The Schneider spec is wrong. These cover sharply right to the edge at 82 degrees. That's about 410mm of image circle. Take it to the bank.

    This one is feather light in it's Copal 1 Press shutter. The press shutters fire each time you cycle the cable release. Top speed on these is 1/125th.

    Price: $385 + shipping 3% to APUG of course.

    If I separated it into four parts, could each part be used by a 4x5? :tongue:

    You could cover 16 Hasselblad's with it!

    I like this lens! But all Siriusness aside, I will concentrate on 4x5 for a while first. Now if you have lenses for a 4x5 Pacemaker Speed Graphic with a 135mm lens or a to be purchased 4x5 Graflex Model D [details are sketchy while the owner, a retired Graflex/Graphic repairman reconditions it and checks it out] then contact me.
