Over the past several years I've visited the APUG forum many times as a guest, and learned a lot.
But, unfortunately I have to make a difficult decision concerning my photography hobby.
Because of a health issue (RA) I jut can't get around like I used to. So, I think it's time for me to find a new hobby.
Therefore I'm selling my 4x5 camera outfit to help fund another interest that I have - music. : )

Enjoy your music (though I can't think of an instrument that doesn't have limitations with RA.

All the detail of a 4x5 with ultra sharp lenses, but in a compact size, takes 120.
But do what you can for your health and be well, enjoy the music
Looks like a reasonable price for someone looking for this type of kit. The meter appears to be a Zone VI model ($400-$500) and the lens new is around $1800 ($600 + or -used). The screens would unload your wallet for a pretty good chunk. If I didn't already have a kit very much like this, I might be emptying my change jar to try and make it happen.
Beautiful kit.. Wish I could afford it. It would come in handy for my trip to Mediapolis and Burlington area trip I'm planning in June.
What type of instrument do you play?
Just for the record, my plan was to allow this FS ad to run for about two weeks, and if I had not sold the outfit by then, I was going to put it the FT section. (I hope that I'm not breaking any rules by listing here what I would be asking for trade in the FT section!)
The instruments that I would be interested in trading for are the following, in order of preference -
Fender 'Stratocaster' Electric Guitar with at least one of the two pickups a P90.
National Resophonic (NRP) Reso Rocket (Resophonic Guitar)
National Resophonic (NRP) Resolectric (Resophonic Electric Guitar)
Fender 'Artist' Flathead 5-string banjo
