    Hi All,

    I'm looking for a good condition, working shutter 65mm press lens. Please PM me if you have something. Must be willing to take Paypal.

    Thanks,

    Jim

    Are you looking for something to cover 4x5 or 2x3?

    Hi Jim
    Just saw your wanted ad. I can offer a 65mm f6.3 Sekor originally from a Mamiya Press. It is mounted in a Seikosha S shutter, but not a helical, so it can be mounted on your lens board. email me at: mogman at frontier (dot)com.

    Thanks
    Bob Tescione

    Thanks Bob, but the Mamiya Press lenses won't do what I need.

    I have something that may work;

    It a 60mm f/5.6 Hexanon in a Prontor II shutter. Nice, light, small, sharp lens.
    Its mounted to a Toyo lensboard now, but any #0 lensboard should work.

    Will that do what you need?
