FS: 36cm Heliar, 300mm Gerogon, 135mm Optar, Ilex & Packard Shutters
Up for sale are a few items I am not currently using and would like to sell to finance a medium format SLR purchase. Please PM with any questions. Payment by PayPal only for this sale. Shipping will be by USPS Priority w/insurance & delivery confirmation.
1 - 36cm f4.5 Voigtlander Heliar - Almost perfect glass, few specks of dust, smooth aperture, new durable paint job (old paint was crappy looking and was not original so I made her pretty again). Mounted on a 6X6 wooden lens board for a Kodak 2D, flange included on board. This lens has 24 aperture blades for a perfectly round aperture, and is very sharp. Has more bokeh than I have ever seen of any LF lens, similar to the bokeh from the Voigtlander 50mm f1.1 Nokton for 135 format.
$500 plus actual shipping (around $15 for CONUS)
2 - 300mm f9 Rodenstock APO-Gerogon - EX+, perfect glass and aperture; flange included as well as both original caps. Great sharp lens that was originally a process or enlarging lens but would also produce great shots for normal use.
$100 shipped CONUS
3 - 135mm f4.7 Wollensak Graflex Optar in Graphex shutter - EX+, perfect glass and aperture, shutter accurate and in LN cosmetic condition. Mounted on a graphic lens board for Crown or Speed graphic. Board was repainted black and a hole that was drilled for a screw to prevent the board from turning was sealed with black silicone. This is the nicest copy of this fairly common lens I have ever seen.
$70 shipped CONUS
4 - Packard Shutter - 3" diameter shutter opening, 5.82 X 5.82" OD of shutter, works perfectly, has been repainted inside and out, lubricated with graphite, has instantaneous (about 1/25) and bulb settings. This model also has flash sync. Comes with bulb and approx. 24" of hose.
$65 shipped CONUS *SOLD*
5 - Acme Synchro #3 shutter, B & T through 1/200. Aperture is f4.5 - 32. Speeds accurate, aperture works as it should. Shutter does not have a normal flange but comes with a metal mount that has three set pins. I have sucessfully used this shutter front mounted on a barrel lens. You could also just get a flange from SK Grimes. Threads on the rear are a little buggered but should thread onto a flange easy enough.
$55 shipped CONUS *SOLD*
