    I have the wrong focal length lens for my eye! I would like to trade my excellent + condition 180mm 5.6 Symmar-S in a Copal No.-1 shutter for a similar quality 240, 250, or 10 in. lens. Must cover 5 x 7 format.

    Gary,
    That is the lens I am looking for. The condition might be a concern so pictures would be helpful.

    Photos 240s symer 5.6

    Hi Tim , Photos as requested , i have deliberately photographed the side with cosmetic flaws note shutter cock missing plastic bit and preview lever a little bent picys come out sharp though and thats what matters glass is good maybe if your lens is far younger and has a better cosmetic appearance we could do partial exchange i'm open to suggestions the lens is currently mounted in a linhof board but that was only to try it on a 5x4 camera it can be sent without board no problem . Cheers Gary

    Yes, this looks like a suitable trade. My 180 mm has no problems that I can see, but I need the 240 minus the lens board, and hopefully you have the a front lens cap.

    Hi Tim looks fine , now how does this work / , I am going to have the board removed tommorrow i don't have a spanner that fits threes , and the lens caps the rear is not original and the front fits a bit loose i will see while i'm at the shop if they have a better fit , Iv'e just held them on with elastic bands better than falling off and risking the glass . Cheers Gary
