    I believe they are no longer made. I wanted one also until I looked at the prices on Ebay. They are common there but seem to sell for up to $80 and I only wanted to pay $40. Then while searching I came across an old Large Format Forum thread that wasn't exactly complimentary. Think I'll stick with my old shorter lupe and just move the focusing hood out of the way.

    I have used one for seven years on 4x5, 8x10 and 7x17. I love it and know several people who want one. If you can find one I think they are worth the price.

    I actually have one for sale in completely mint condition with neck strap and original box. I can send photos if anyone is interested.

    $50 includes shipping and Paypal fees within CONUS. Elsewhere, please ask.
