    Wista 4x5 kit with lenses plus extras

    Selling back the 4x5 gear I bought here on this forum late last year. All in the same condition I bought it in. I only used it a few times (probably set it up about 8 times) as I realized I my other cameras suited my purposes better. So I'm selling this to put some more money in my 8x10 set up.

    Included:
    Wista Zone VI body
    Caltar HR (Topcor) 210/5.6
    Rodenstock Ysarex 135/4.5 (later multi-coated version, Tessar design.
    I will include a few film holders (might have to ship them separately as they are not with me currently). All modern plastic units.
    LowePro backpack in great condition. I think there is a yellow filter on one of the lenses as well as a some cable releases, dark cloth and changing bag that will also be included.

    Camera body is in used but solid condition. No light leaks.
    Both lenses have perfect glass and shutters fire well.
    (The Rodenstock's shutter is slow on the slower speeds, but I never used them.)

    Purchase price here was $1000. I'm asking $900 plus shipping & fees. I'm dropping the price since I'd like to hold on to a few film holders for my 4x5 pinhole and I did use the camera a few times.

    Ah Collin She has done well for me and I didn't mind the weight. I hate to part with it but other priorities are winning right now. That 8x10 is begging for some glass. I have a feeling I will regret this

    Nice camera. I know because I own one as well, as the original purchaser through Zone VI. It's not really very heavy. My original Zone VI camera bag handled all the needed paraphenalia (including the camera) and wasn't much bigger than a 35mm shoulder bag. I carried it with me throughout the backcountry of northern Nevada for three years without a single shoulder surgery.

    Can't seem to find a way to bump this thread. It says I'm allowed at the top but I don't have the option to do it. So I'm just gonna reply and hope someone sees it.

    Ken, yes it is in fact a relatively light set up which is refreshing with LF

    Would you consider splitting the Ysarex out on its own?
