    Beautiful Heliar Lens - 300mm, Coated, on Sinar Board

    We don't see too many coated Heliars in this focal length.

    The diaphragm has... 18 blades, and operates smoothly.

    I purchased this lens 2 years ago and had it professionally mounted on a genuine Sinar board* - intending to make portraits - for which its is truly an ideal lens.

    Botanical images have beckoned me, so this lens needs a new loving family.

    Asking $900.

    At wide apertures, it gives heavenly blur, and razor sharpness. Stopped down, it's just plain razor sharp. Excellent for 4x5, 5x7, and 8x10.

    * Note the red indentation, to accommodate a Sinar shutter.

    Change of heart I notice

    Asking $950, on this forum first. After that, it goes to APUG, AZO, and eBay at a higher price.

    ...but what if we can't afford it?

    We can still look and dream.
    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    I have created a web page, showing some photos made recently with the lens on 4x5 and 5x7.

    Don't show pictures made with it...that just makes me wish even more that I wasn't too broke to go for it.

    If my Mac wasn't dying I could've actually bought it. Lucky that Adam made me look at computers *first* before I got to look at photo gear.
