    Well, I'll offer it and if there aren't any takers, that'll be OK!

    You can read all about this lens on my web site here.

    The name is vulgar, but the pictures are..........vulgar.

    7 3/4" focus at an effective f3.2. Very fast! Very weird! Altogether unique!
    There is no aperture although cutting a waterhouse slot would only require the skill of a hack saw.

    So lighten up and have some fun for once. I'll be sorry if someone buys it. OTOH, it's just been laying in the lens drawer while someone could be having some fun with it. $225 + shipping.

    I'd love to give this a whirl but have no idea how I'd use it.

    Yeah, it's not a small lens, so to make a Packard shutter work requires at least a 6X6 lensboard. Then you still need to get f3.2 to work in 1/25th of a second. I may have used Freestyle APHS asa 3 lith film to help get it under control.

    There's no possible way I could use this, but I have to say it's pretty cool.
