    As the title says I am looking for a normal to wide lens for 4x5, linhof III copal 0 board, graflex century 2x3 boards as well as a mounting bracket (not sure if this is what it is really called) for a Linhof anatomical grip. I am newly taking up large format so please excuse any ignorance or excessive questions I may have regarding this equipment. I'm kind of on a budget so although I would loooove to buy your $2500 dollar modern lens it's probably not gonna happen unless you want to make me the deal of a lifetime :whistling:

    Thanks
    Ryan

    Ryan- I would sell you my ektar 152mm but it aint happening either!! go look for one on the bay; a great lens that I've used for 20 years; also any of the fuji or nikon 150mm are sweet...look for a deal and make sure the glass is clean
    Best, Peter

    yes the 152 ektar is a great lens, i have one also, i bought mine from keh a couple of years back, bargain grade for 60 bucks, couldnt figure out why it was bargain grade, they must look at these things w ith a microscope, shutter and glass look perfect. you also might try the 127 ektar, its an awsome lens, barely covers 4x5 but it will get you started, its what i cut my teeth on, you can pick them up cheap. good luck

    Thank you both for the suggestions, I appreciate it as the sheer number of lenses (and difference in price/size/coverage etc.) can be quite daunting when getting into large format. I will look around to see if I can find a good example of one of those if nothing comes from this ad.

    Hi,

    I have a sweet little Wollensak Wide Angle Raptar 90mm lens on a Technika III board that might be what you're looking for. Let me know if you're interested.

    Best,
    Daniel

    I think I've got the linhof boards taken care of but am still in need of 2x3 graphic lens boards. Anyone?
