    Dan;

    It depended on altitude and resolution. Recon lenses varied all over the map. One description did not cover all. I show a photo of one in my gallery.

    There were 2 types of recon cameras, rectified and non-rectfied. There are so many cameras and lenses that it would be difficult to describe them. All I know is that I still have my recon slide rule!

    For that kind of money I know someone who will make a custom lens that will make this one look like it was made for a Holga. They accept NASA credit cards.

    I once questioned an overseas seller about a crazy price. He replied, stating that there was a currency conversion error.

    I like this explanation.
