Up for sale is a "convertible" Ilex setup - You will receive one Ilex #3 Shutter and two sets of lens cells. Maximum aperture is f4.8 on one and f4.5 on the other so with only .3 difference in aperture the cells and shutter are interchangeable.
1. Ilex #3 Acme Synchro Shutter - Shutter speeds are accurate; even 1 sec. Aperture is dry and turns smoothly. Speeds are B, T, 1sec thru 1/150. A previous owner has removed the bi-posts for flash sync as well as the lever for selecting F, X or M. There is no retaining ring or flange with this shutter, SK Grimes has replacements for $35.
2. Ilex Caltar-S 8 1/2" f4.8 (215mm) - Lens cells are in very nice shape, there are a few very small cleaning marks and the inside element on the rear group has a bit of coating loss on the edge of about 1/3 of the lens.
3. Ilex Paragon Anastigmat 6 1/2" f4.5 (165mm) - Lens cells are in EX shape, there are a couple of super small cleaning marks, very hard to see without a loupe and a few small particles of dust. Otherwise in super shape.
Here is your chance to get two nice lenses, one shutter for a great price. Prefer payment by PayPal as a "gift" to avoid fees, add 3% if you prefer to send payment the regular way through paypal. MO/Check is a last resort but can be accepted.
