    There's one of these for sale on the bay right now; but it comes without a shutter. Anyone have any experience in mounting this in a shutter? Is it worth the extra effort, or should I just stick around til there's one with a shutter for sale.

    SK Grimes could mount it in a shutter, but the cost of doing so would exceed its value. Probably by a few times over. You can find general prices for that service on their website.

    OTOH, do you really need a shutter with a lens that is that slow? If it went for a cheap price, say well under $100, it might be worth considering.
