I have in my hands this lens. This is the first I've ever seen, quite impressive. It has X Y shift as well as tilt. Beautifully constructed. I am cleaning the optics for a store and once it is completed the store will post it for sale. For those of you very interested the store is Penn Camera in Washington DC.
I wouldn't be able to clean it, what with drooling all over it at the same time.
I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.
Old thread. I've been looking at pricing on these for years and agree that it is difficult to justify its purchase. I suspect only a professional doing contracts such as annual reports, cold really justify it. Years ago I used to see them for rent by camera shops which made sense.
I can see a ETR* collector seeking one out also, after picking up the 3 zoom lenses and all other accesories and becoming bored with his/her bank account.
The reason I ask is because i recently brought an ETR with with a MC 105mm, AEII finder, speed grip the older MC 55mm Tilt Shift, and a Polaroid back for just under £500. Was this a good price for this set up?
Last 1 I saw for sale was well within the 4 figure range. It was advertised as NOS, NIB by an ex-Bronica dealer who was selling off his old Bronica inventory. Items for sale included boxed ETR and ETRC as well as a number of MC lenses, bellows, and other assorted pieces. All advertised as new. Cream of the crop was the chrome anniversary ETRS (ETRSi?) edition. I almost went for the bellows but, have a complete set of tubes so could not quite justify it. Dang, I should have gone for it.
