    What's this lens really worth?

    eBay says anywhere from $300-$700. How realistic is that?

    We've got one coming up at the PHSNE auction in October- fitted to a Canon A1, no less! I'll tell you then what it is worth to somebody– around Boston anyway.
    As has been said, it's worth what somebody actually pays you, and not a cent more.

    I know that there are some that are commonly attached to Speed Graphics. I'm hoping that since this says 5x5 this is the one?!? (Which if it does, means that I'm going to kick myself in the ass for selling mine in January!!)

    obviously it's ~400$ on ebay. there are quite some which have been sold during the last 2 weeks. do a search on ebay and tick the "completed" box in advanced search.

    I paid $40 for one and gave it away after I tested it.

    It's a fad, cash in now. I wouldn't buy one for any other reason than to sell at a profit.

    Amateur astronomers used to use these (and esp. the 12") f/2.5 Aero-Ektars for wide-field star photography. Talkin' '60s here.

    Actually, click "sold" only using "completed" will include stuff that didn't sell.
