    I am toying with an idea of making my own panoramic camera.

    If you have a LF lens/shutter in "I'm probably not going to use this" stage, I am interested in buying it from you. I am looking for focal length considered normal to wide in either 4x5 or 5x7 format. It has to work - meaning shutter must fire and reasonably accurate and lens can have some marks but shouldn't be that bad that it'll show in the final result.

    As this is my experiment, I would rather not spend all that much. Please let me know what you have and how much you'd want for it. I'm in Central Florida, US.

    Hey there. I have a couple of lenses that may do the trick. I have a 65mm f8 ilex wide-angle lens. it is not labeled as such, but I have another one exactly the same that is labeled. I think i have it in a size 00 prontor-press shutter. The shutter needs to be marked for the aperture. It should cover 4x5 but I can test it out for you if you are interested. I would probably sell it for around $100

    I should also have a tominon 127mm lens I can send you on the cheap.

    I am not too sure what you are looking for.
