    I am looking for a Graflex Crown Graphic 4x5. I'm hoping to get it with a standard lens as well, like the Optar 135mm. Side or top mounted rangefinder, either is fine as long as it's calibrated and accurate for use with said lens. Also, a Graflok back is preferable.

    I'm looking for a Weston Master V with Invercone and cases. It doesn't matter if the meter is accurate or not as I plan to have the selenium cells replaced.

    The meter movement is more likely to fail on this meter. The selenium cells in the Westons were well made and should be [famous last words] just fine.

    It's getting much harder to find Weston Master V's where th original selenium cell is still still OK. They can be refurbished though and that usually includes a new movement.

    If you are still looking I have both; Master V has been overhauled and works great.
