FS: Orbit 375mm (14 3/4") in Ilex #5 shutter
I have a very nice Orbit 375mm lens for sale.
This is the second-cousin-once-removed of the Commercial Ektar/Ilex crowd.
These have a really nice sharpness, coupled with a slightly softer contrast than the KCEs; here are a couple of recent image taken with this lens:

It has a huge 468mm image circle, good for 10x12, and simply amazing on 8x10.
The glass looks quite nice, no flaws that stand out at all.
A few small signs of use on the barrel and shutter.
Shutter speeds work properly, they increase/decrease incrementally, as they should, and I have had no trouble with exposures.
Comes with non-original caps and flange.
$450 plus shipping, OBO.
Sold, pending payment; thank you.
