    I was given a Bronica GS system to sell for a friend of another member. The camera comes with, metered finder, speed grip, backs and 4 lenses. The lenses are 100mm, 150mm 65mm and the 250mm. I have been able to find prices on all items but the 250mm.

    Can anyone give me some ball park figures on the lens? The glass, barrel, everything is in near mint or mint condition. The lens comes with both caps including metal screw on front cap. Any help would be appreciated.

    KEH has a pricing tool. They'll give you the price they'd buy the lens for. Obviously they intend to resell it for more.

    With Ebay it depends on how nutty the last two bidders are.

    Cool tool, the KEH quote is 137.00. Which I am going to suemize as being a little more than half the retail value (~250.00).

    You might also ask on the Bronica Yahoo!Group, which has recently been revived under a new moderator. It's not too active, but it seems like anyone left on the "Bronica Pro" group has moved over to the "Bronica" group. I guess there are not a lot of new things to say about the Bronica system.
