    WTB: 90/6.8 Lens (Optar/Raptar?) for 4x5...

    Hi, all -

    I'm looking for a 90/6.8 lens in shutter, preferably an Optar or Raptar, to revive my 4x5 fixed-focus hyperfocal camera. Anyone have anything?

    Yeah, I checked both, and while there've been some Angulons recently, I find nothing available now. Unless my search-fu is weak (possible)...

    Last few weeks a couple of Angulons have been sold here at reasonable prices so keep checking and you shall find. Consider adding the Georg Leitmeyr weitwinkel (WA) 90mm 6.8 to your search too. Good lens, good price (like the Angulons should be found for under $100 or so) and from what I've read very similar.

    Thanks, Richard. I'll keep an eye out. I'm open to any and all 90/6.8s, working or not.

    All I see is a 90/4.5 Grandagon, which is way more lens than I need for this. Can you post/PM a link if I'm missing it?

    Thanks,

    I have a late 50's (I think) Linhof Select 90/6.8 Angulon that needs a shutter overhaul I'll sell for a good price.

    The Leitmeyr Weitwinkel is a double Gauss, in most cases (except mine, it seems). Slightly lower contrast as a result of eight surfaces compared to four in the Angulon.
