Considering 4x5 kit, sanity check
Edit: I initially deleted this post with a suggestion of deleting the thread as I thought i missed out on it. Turns out i didn't. This was rewritten after the first response to the thread.
Thought I missed out on this offer but I'm meeting the seller after all.
Here is his offer:
Tachihara 4x5 body in good shape with bellows light-tight
Rodenstock 150mm, f/5.6
Nikkor SW 90mm, f/8
Fujinon A 240 mm, f/9
Schneider-Kreuznach 65mm, f/9
12 4x5 film holders
Calumet 20-exposure medium-format film-back
He is asking $1200, I'm initially offered $1000.
This would be my first 4x5 experience. The total cost is high, but I figure that could immediately recover $500-800 by selling a pair of the lenses, making the total cost something much more reasonable. This would also be total overkill for a first kit.
Any feedback would be appreciated.
