    Is this a good deal for a Graflex view?

    I'm feeling a powerful burst of GAS. Do I need to squelch it?

    How is that price for the appearance and that lens/shutter? It's been there since at least mid-August so nobody is rushing to buy it.

    Perhaps because the price is too high ...

    Way too high. I've seen those things go for around $150-200.

    I was thinking more around $300. It looks in pretty good shape.

    I'll join the chorus. I think the price is way too high.

    With a modern Ektar f/7.7 203mm, it might be overpriced by a factor of two. That prewar Anastigmat is similar to the Ektar, but is uncoated and the shutter lacks sync. Be patient. Better deals will show up.

    Graphic View II is one of the few monorails that is light enough for the field (but still has a big box). One charm of the Graphic View is it's low price. That one on ebay is way too much. You can get a used Chamonix or Shen-Hao for that much money.

    The price is way too high, and i really dont like the graphic views.
    Go not to the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.
