I have never seen a 360 A since getting into LF some 18 months ago. I think I have seen two 350's in the past year. Figure instead of waiting who knows how long for one at $700-$800 you can spend just $950 now and get a brand new one from B&H....you can not even do that with the 360 A.
I'm glad I bought it new and got right to work, it is a very effective lens in my set. At some point in the not-so-distant future, Rodenstock and Schneider are going to stop making these lenses for the reason that even if the price is fairly close between new and used like it is with the 350, people just flat out refuse to pay new prices for these lenses. So with a newer lens like the 350, they could be far more rare because it was introduced well after LF's peak and the numbers made will reflect that.
It seems like since you shoot both 4x5 & 8x10, you ought to just suck it up and get it new, you never know when announcements of a discontinuation could surface...
